Being Late

This is going to be a short post today guys, sorry, but I have a lot of homework to do tonight, and it's been raining pretty much all day which honestly puts a large damper on my creative spirits.

So just a fun fact about me, I am usually late to pretty much everything.

It doesn't matter if it is meeting up with friends, showing up to get dinner, going to class, getting to practice on time, or being on time for work; I am almost always late.

I would say my clock just runs around 10 minutes slower than the average person's.

I try my hardest not to be, but it seems that no matter how much time I leave myself to be there on time, it never quite works out.

I think that it's something that I have inherited from my family.  My parents are always late for things, and growing up, my aunt has always been late for things, and I've been told that my grandparents were always late for things as well.

With that many people in a family being late, then how am I supposed to be any different!

You would think that I would show up on time for things that I consider "fun."  I really like hanging out with my friends, but honestly, they expect me to be late for seeing them.  I would even go as far as to say that it has become somewhat of a joke between them all, seeing how late I will be.

I have tried many things to get myself on time, walking/driving faster, leaving earlier, setting my clocks fast, but none of these things ever really seem to work...

What do you guys think?  Am I fated to be forever late?  What are your opinions about being late?  Do you have any friends who are always late for things?

Thanks for reading once again, peace.

  1. I don't really get how people can be late all the time...If I choose to be on time then I am. But if leaving earlier and walking faster didn't work for you, then...I dunno. Time Vortex? :D

  4. I used to be late for almost everything. I set my clocks 5 minutes fast. Now I seem to be 10 minutes early, which can be almost as bad sometimes.

  6. I always aim to be 30min early, because there are things I could do while waiting. If I turn up 15mins early it's no real loss :) 30mins can seem like a long time, but it's actually not that bad if you can occupy that time with something

  7. I am rarely late to work or my classes. Just wake up earlier and get your stuff together fast. Take a quick shower, dress, get the hell to class : -p. I mean waking up earlier has always helped me, though I have never really been a late person. Just keep trying new things, especially waking up earlier.

  8. You're not alone my friend. Usually late to class most of the time myself, although I'm a bit lazy in the mornings. :P It's a really bad habit of mine.

  13. I am late too... usually just fashionably late though(lol, does that make me sound cooler or something, idk but its how i justify my lateness...). This is usually like 2-3 minutes late. However I have friends that are later than I am...
    If you have friends that are true friends, they will realize this flaw of yours and adapt accordingly. Your friends will start telling you movies and parties are at 9:40 when really they're at 10:00pm etc, etc... As long as your ok with this, life will go on.
    As far as business meetings are concerned... Good Luck LoL!

  39. I'm a person who is late quite often... I try to keep an eye on it, but every time I have an appointment I go like, well I still have x minutes left... Still x minutes left... I should really get going now... Okay now I have to go or I'll be late...

    That's the point where I do something time consuming for the last time :p
