I'm usually NEVER late, but I have been for work lately because of the Metro. For some reason, I can leave anytime between 8:15 and 8:45 and still get to work ten minutes late.

Aunt Flo? haven't heard that one before..wouldn't mind being that kind of late

always punctual
I like to get meetings underway at the advertised bugs me we have to wait so long, just in case someone may wander in.

Must confess this year the change to daylight saving time caught me out. I hadn't changed my wristwatch.Wandered in a 12.55 for a 1pm appointment to see if they were running on time. They looked askance at me..."but it's 1.55pm already"
silly me
I was almost late for the U2 Popmart concert, missed the support band because of forgotten tickets. Got to the stadium just as U2 played the first note...the rest is history, ended up at the Bstage.Serendipity that was.
I'll get over it one day...maybe...not.

I'm usually on time. I've never been late to a movie or concert. In all of high school I was never late to class. Not even once. I was late to a couple classes when I was hobbling all over campus a couple years ago with a badly sprained ankle.

I used to be notoriously late for church (this was a very small church too, so everyone knew it when you came in late). The whole service stops and everyone goes "Hi, John, glad you decided to come!"...Fortunatly everyone else there was frequently late.

I'm late to work every damn day. At least by an hour. Actually they could care less as long as I work my 8 hours. I wish I could get my ass out of bed earlier, so I could leave work earlier, but I am up to late every night.

I am usually on either on time or a little early.

The one time that stands out where I was late was for a final. We had a few hours between finals so a friend and I decided to go get something to eat and I didnt have a watch. It turned out that she thought we had to be there at 1 but it was acutally noon. In the meantime one of our other friends kept telling the instructor that something must have happened and when we showed up the instructor was waiting for us. We did get to take the final but had to sit across from her at her desk in her office with her watching. The woman didnt like me and I had been up all night studying so needless to say I was a little ticked at my friend.

I am very rarely late for anything. If I am ever late for something, I have a good reason as to why. But most of the time, like, I'd say, oh, 95% of the time, I'm on time for things.

There was this one time I was late that really ticked me off, though:

I was in 9th grade at the time, and my mom decided she was gonna take my sister and I to school that day, and before we got to school she had to take care of a couple of things first, and then we got there, and I was heading to my first class as the bell rang for the class to start.

I was, what, 5 seconds late? And that was the very first, and only, time I'd ever been late to that class.

And yet I still had to stay 30 minutes after school for that one time I was late to that class.

The principal's like, "Well, your mom should've taken care of the stuff she needed to do the night before." She couldn't! This was stuff she couldn't have taken care of before then (I don't even remember what it was she was doing that morning).

And anyway, like I said, it was just one time, I mean-come on.


Anyway, back on the topic at hand...
