Three cheers!

Punctuality is the courtesy of princes.

Ms. Jane

You realize it's only okay to do this if you're not late all the time, right?

That's my major beef. I'm totally prompt. But if I'm late to see somebody's who's always late to see me and they yell at me? The gloves are freakin' off.

Stood up, flaked, etc. -- bad. Also endemic to California.

But I will say, I am always running late. I can't seem to make it to work less than a half hour late, and I am rarely more than 15 minutes late for meeting a friend, so I figure my priorities are in order.

I had a discussion of this with a friend who hates lateness, but came to realize that with some people (i.e. me :) ) it is not actually a statement about my friend, their worth, their time's worth, etc. It's just who they are.

So if you yell at me for being late, I will merely look sheepish, but it probably won't change anything.

garnet

Sounds fair enough.

Did you get the flower hat jelly picture???

badgerbag

no! what flower hat jelly picture??

I still have your books... And Garnet have you read the real Mary Popp1ns books?

Stephanie

Instead of yelling, why not say, "this is not acceptable" in a very firm voice? If they are very late (my boundaries are usually 15-20 minutes), leave. Okay, that's what I do and if they call all sheepish and everything, I ask why they couldn't have called before because you know, my time is precious. And even though I always, always, always have a book with me and am pretty laid back, that doesn't mean that it's acceptable. I so feel your pain.

garnet

Hahaha! The elusive flower hat jelly is on its way.

I read Mary Poppins, but it was so long ago that I remember almost nothing about the books except that she was not like Julie Andrews at all: vain, not sweet, and kind of testy.
