For as long as I can remember, I’ve been unable to be late anywhere. I’m always there 15 minutes in advance. Whenever obstacles out of my control makes it look like I’m going to be late, I start to feel physically ill.
This is probably why I find there is nothing more frustrating than constantly waiting on someone else. It’s completely understandable that something unexpected happened making you late, but when it becomes a pattern, it’s not out of your control.
I know that some people are late on purpose. Personally , I don’t want to spend the rest of your life being that person that shows up more than fashionably late to every event.
