  • I feel people who are consistently late are just inconsiderate of the hostess of the event. Unless it's a picnic or something where it doesn't matter if you are on time. My SO is always late. I am usually within 10 minutes of start time. Sometimes we take two cars because we are going to fight if we don't.

  • It depends on the event. If someone is counting on me or investing their time in me then yes I feel it's important to be on time. If it's just a party or somewhere I'm at just to show face or socialize or whatever then I don't think it matters as much and I don't rush.

  • My sister is ALWAYS late. Today we were going to the movie, the movie was to start at 1pm, she showed up at my house at 12:57, and I live at least 15 minutes from the theater. UGH!

    I always try to be a little early, I hate walking in late.

  • It depends on the event. If it is a casual party that says from a certain time to a certain time, I don't feel I have to be there the second it starts. If I am going to a party for someone I know well, I do show up early to help.

  • Anything past on time is rude and inconsiderate. Is it really that hard to be on time, if not early? No! I can honestly say I have been late once in my life, only because I overslept (even then it was only by 5 min). Im a pretty laid back person but even I think only being early or at least on time is acceptable.

  • I am OCD about arriving on time no matter where I go.

  • It depends on what it is. I am almost always early by a few minutes. My family and my Inlaws are late to everything. It drives me insane!
