Question: Do You Arrive Early Or Late?

I am a early person. If I am going somewhere, I will get there from 15 minutes to 20 minutes early. At least in the area of the meeting. Still 10 mins. early. I hate it when some one is late. I can give 5 or 10 minutes late…but more, well, I get antsy. Starts to bug me. And those who are half an hour late without a call … I am out of there. I find being blatantly late, rude. Those who are late, without calling to let the other person know … are selfish and controlling. I know there is exception to the rule. Sometimes emergencies come up. I can live with that. But those who walk into our church, 15 minutes after the service started, on a constant level.. are rude. And if they are carrying a latté, I am really peeved — Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind.
