I try to be, as much as possible and especially make sure I am if someone else is put out if I'm late. However, if it's not for work or for meeting a friend I tend not to be too fanatical...I hate being too rigid with any area of my life. My husband gets a bit fanatical about punctuality and that can be irritating for me.
I am almost always on time if not ahead of time. However, when my husband is also involved, then we are almost always running late. I don't like the idea that people are late because of my own tardiness.
Yes, I have an internal clock that helps me get on time most of the time. There are times when I am late, of course, but they are very rare. I don't like when the others are late, so I try to avoid being late myself
Yes pretty much. If I make a commitment to you whether it be for business or pleasure I will honour it. If I think there is a likelihood I will not be able to meet that commitment I will let you know in advance. It is my way of demonstrating to you that you are important to me and that I respect you.
And then some!
I HATE being late! Stresses me out to the max & get really p'd off if I've left plenty of time & something beyond my control, makes me late! I know it's NOT my fault, but the very thought of being late, for me, is the stuff of my nightmares!
Comes from having to catch planes, all my life, I suppose! Have never missed one, but came very close once. Coming from training course in Sydney, traffic was horrendous. Got to air Terminal. thru security, ran full speed straight to gate lounge, speedily checked through & on aircraft. Door was slammed shut. I sat there for 20mins, coughing, & puffing. FA brought me water with lemon to sip. She was worried I'd have a 'fit' from all the coughing. My throat was sooooo dry! Anyway, got home safely & on time, having had multiple glasses of water!
It was not my fault, but I still felt really annoyed!
