Thanks for pointing that out when I clearly stated "it's not anyone else's fault that I am so I don't care if they are on time."

Yeah, but you're 'sitting there forever'. You're already sitting there 15 minutes, so how late does someone have to be for you to start getting annoyed?

Well, I did mention 20 minutes specifically in my post.

I don't care if someone is a few minutes late.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

the "get there 15 minutes early" strategy seems pretty extreme unless theres a lot of variability in the time of your trip. For instance, im leaving for work about 20 minutes early b/c if some of the lots are full, parking can be a real *****. Most of the time i just walk in the cold.

Meh, there's almost always some variability if I'm going into town. That way if I'm late then I'm still on time.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

worse than the showing up late though is the "ill be there in 5 minutes" when you know you are 20 minutes away

at that point its better to just eat it and say you are gonna be late.

yea, I dont get this at all. there is no way you can reasonably be that late consistently and also no way that whoever you told wont notice.

I'm perpetually late. My time IS more important than your time. Get over it.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Tardiness

I thought BPT was late, and GPT was early.

My MIL will call my wife and say she's coming by in 30 minutes to drop something off (wonderful - another dumb trinket we don't want or need).

So we're held hostage in our house. An hour later I will tell her to call her mom and ask where she is. She calls. Her mom says "I'm right around the corner." Wife hangs up. LOL. This lady lives literally 10 minutes away from us and traffic is a complete non-issue.

My MIL is the biggest liar, it's infuriating. She's also the "I'm 5 minutes away" when she's 20 type.

That's another one that sucks. When people say they are dropping by your house for whatever reason. Don't show up late. Nobody wants to be held hostage in their house, waiting on you to get there. Highly disrespectful.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Tardiness

But everybody values their time more than that of others.

The difference is considerate people will make sure they are on time. Inconsiderate ****s just don't care.

If they respect everyone's time so little, they shouldn't agree to show up. Just don't even come so we can ****ing eat on time, please.
I disagree with this. I'm sure that's true of some people, but others get super uncomfortable if they're the first person to get to a spot, especially a new one. That's certainly applied to me at various points in life.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Tardiness

Some people hate getting to places first. Not because their time is more important but because it is uncomfortable for them to wait alone in new surroundings. I know we're all alphas here, but not everyone is.

ETA: that's obviously a different thing than always being 15 minutes late because you can be - its more like "I hope I get there 90 seconds after someone else does".

I know. Was just trying to turn my social anxiety and general worthlessness on its head.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Tardiness

I, too, am often late. I am incredibly bad at keeping track of time, estimating how long it takes to do something and remembering all the steps necessary to do so. So even when I'm relatively on top of things, if I have to be somewhere at whatever time that is a 15-minute drive away I'll start leaving at quarter 'till, actually hitting the road 5-10 minutes later because I have to get whatever I need. Add in that I likely won't realize it's time to leave even at the time I need to be on the road to get there on time and that I often have trouble finding **** I need for the trip (keys etc.) it's not unusual for me to be 15-20 minutes late.

How important what I'm going to is to me doesn't matter at all unless it's important enough to occupy my mind when I'm doing whatever I'm doing ahead if time, like a job interview, wedding or something.

This is a very common story for people with ADD, which is why I asked Shark if his friends are fidgety.

You have to be an alpha male to be the first to show up to Saltgrass to meet family? lol.

Why don't you just sit in your car and wait until you see someone you know walking in?
