What can be done? (Nothing)

I don't get it I agreed to babysit 2 girls from our neighbor bc mom had to go out of town and dad has to go to work. We agreed on 6:30 am to be here so I get my ass up to be ready for them and guess what I am still freaking waiting it 6:50.

Why do people do this? I am doing THEM a favor bc I am a good person and I want to but to tell someone a certain time and act like I have no life it just pisses me off...this is why I stay to my self at times to avoid all the drama in life...ugh!

Venting ladies...

  • It is 20 minutes. Likely their schedule is off a bit. Calm down a little

  • I don't see any drama here other than what you're creating. If it continuously happens, then I could see a point in getting annoyed. But this is the first day. Have some coffee & enjoy your time alone.

  • a lot of people are never on time. SO frustrating!
    Give them a break though- maybe this isn't normal, they might be having a rough morning... hopefully, it isn't normal for them

  • Sometimes people run late. It happens. You're upsetting yourself, it's not them doing it.

  • I need to explain more this is like them they have done this before.
    I guess It make me upset bc I could never do this if I tell you a time I will be there and if for some reason I am late I WILL call you....ugh!

  • I am an on time type person. I am on time or early to everything and I expect every one else to be too. So 20 minutes late would get a lecture on being on time. I am doing you a favor type thing.
