what is it about people and not being able to tell time accurately? "I'll be there at 12." "See you at 2." "i put it in my calendar for 330." and naturally, they show up at: 1 o'clock. 345. and 5. really, when i tell you when i will be somewhere, i am there 20-30 minutes early in case there's a problem or to avoid delays. and i hate giving excuses more than anything. so why do people really lie or make empty promises about these things? besides, when someone is late, i have to wonder if they are safe or not. it's just too much stress over something that could be avoided with a little courtesy. it's a pet peeve of mine i suppose. but is it too much to ask of people that they learn how to tell time and stick to a schedule that they make themselves?
