Pet Peeves

We all have some. I probably have more than the average person because I'm so picky about stuff! But I'm just gonna share one that was on my mind last night because we were starting a new family religious ed. class.

I am a very punctual person. I'm always on time if not early. If I am supposed to be at a meeting, appointment or class at a certain time, I am usually there at least 10-15 minutes early. (Barring any unforeseen circumstances or major catastrophe!)

What really bugs me is when the people leading the meeting look at the clock and say "Well, it's 7pm and we should be starting but it looks like everyone has not arrived yet, let's give them a few more minutes."

Excuse me? I was here on time and so were the the rest of us sitting here. Let's start on time. Why cater to those who don't respect the rest of us and our time and show up late? We start late, which means we end late, I get home later than expected and it throws my night off even more!

Is it too much to ask for people to be on time?

(btw, luckily this was not the case last night. We started pretty much on time, not bad for the first night and learning the new system.....picking up folder, finding assigned seat etc.)

I am definitely with you on this one. Another thing about late peeps I hate, is when you get there early to get a good seat and they come in and make you move over....grrrr! I wanna scream "I was here first, go sit somewhere else!!" :D

Oh, Lynn, I am so with you! And with Amy! I get there early SO that I can pick my seat!

Thank you for coming by my place on our BATW tour! I hope you'll visit again!
