Does your husband do this?

Dh had to go help his uncle, who lives 5 minutes away, do something. He said it should take "20 minutes or so". 3.5 hours later and he's still not home. He doesn't do it to be a jerk, he genuinely always underestimates how long it will take to do something. It's like the man has NO concept of time lol. He does it ALL the time! Does your husband or so do this?

No, I do that lol.


Not Thaaat bad, but I do have poor concept of time and I'm frequently late. Luckily I'm marrying the most patient man on the face of the Earth!

For Christmas my fiance bought me a shirt that said "Sorry I'm Late" on the front :P.

Yes but he has gotten alot better about it.  now he overestimates so he can say he is home early.

Yes.  He gets to talking to someone and just loses all track of time.  Makes me crazy.

My DH has no concept of time, but on a longer scale. He's fine with minutes and hours, but something that happened two weeks ago may as well have happened three months ago.

Oh yes he does.  It is so frustrating.  I think wanting to help others is so nice but unfortunately, he gets taken advantage of a lot.

Not that long, but he does seem to take an inordinate amount of time to do everything. I know he drives faster than the speed limit, almost everywhere, and I usually drive under so I always wonder why it takes him longer than me to go back and forth to the exact same place. Sometimes he will be long just running to the convenient store, but it always turns out he's run into someone he knows and was talking to them forever. In his line of work he's always running into people he knows.
