Do you arrive for work, doctor appointments, social events, etc on time?  What events (if any) warrant being early for?  Is there anything you purposely show up late for?  Explain. 

How about your kids?

<<Thank you. And AMEN!  I really hope there is a contrarian attitude about it on the board simply b/c they don't like me and are trying to poke my so-called achilles heel and that no one actually feels that way about kids w/FA IRL>>

You're welcome and I really hope that the posts here are just another example of bias debating instead of how one really feels .  I can't imagine laughing about and treating a child with life threatening allergies in real life as I have seen by a small few on this board.

I've had the pleasure of sitting next to Gina's daughter for a couple of hours at dinner. You want that child at parties. She's a pistol.

I have had dinner with her as well and I totally agree, she is such a sweetie with quite a bit of spark, she's a hoot and welcome anytime at my house as is regina.

Anyone else wondering what will be tossed in from right field today in the passive aggressive delivery?

For social events that I'm a guest to, I show up at the designated time.  For work, appointments, meetings, etc, I figure that being *on time* actually means being there and ready by the designated time, which means arriving early enough to be prepared, that may mean showing up five minutes before *go time*, or twenty. 

I can't think of a time that it's acceptable to be late, I think that being late is disrespectful to others.  The only time I have ever been late for anything is when there are extinuating circumstances (such as the freeway being shut down b/c of an accident).

My kids are on time...actually, two of them consider anything less than 15 minutes early to be late, regardless of the circumstance.

I'm guessing she didn't.  Since she's not a character on Dynasty, and all....

You never threw your drink in a guy's face?  Threw his flowers in the trash?  Storm out of a restaurant?

Never did that but sounds very dramatic lol. I've hung up on my dh on a phone that you can slam down, not like the ones now that you push the button to turn it off. lol
