To preface this, I want to assure you all that I don't write this with an air of self righteousness. Just look at it this way. We all have pet peeves, right? Well, mine is being late. I was lucky enough to marry a man who feels the same way I do about being on time. (Actually, at times I've wondered if it could be a bad thing, depending on the circumstances.) If I'm even a minute or two late somewhere, I will apologize. It's ingrained in me to be on time; anything less would be unacceptable to me. But, I recognize that James and I are near anomalies Almost everybody in this world is late, at least by a few minutes, (some 20-60 minutes) and it seems they think nothing of it.
So, my question is this. If I am going to somebody's house, and this somebody is notoriously late to EVERYTHING they go to, do they expect me to show up on time, or to be late? It's a real question. What are they expecting? If they are late to everything they go to, it seems only logical that they wouldn't expect me to show up on time to their house, right? Or am I wrong. I am genuinely curious. Any of you late type people have the answer for me?
