QOTD Wednesday

Are you normally on time? Late? Early? What about your DH?

I'm generally on time. I use to always be late, but all of my friends are early. Some have the "if you're 15 minutes early, your late" Marines mentality. I feel awful when I make them wait, so the last few years I've gottne better about being on time. Even with 2 kids! It amazes myself.

Yup, this is us too. DH is late and i.can't.stand.it. Seriously, if it's the one thing I teach my kids, it's that you're on time.

We are always ridiculously early, so is DH we usually have to find a way to waste time to arrive exactly on time. I have NO tolerance for lateness and the girls have already learned this lesson and never ever want to be late.

I hate being too early but also hate being late...I used to be very good at being right on time, until I got married. Oh my gosh, DH has NO concept of time or time management. Trying to get somewhere on time with him is like pulling teeth. I have to nag and nag and nag and by the time we get in the car, I literally want to kill him. I will start warning him an hour before we have to go somewhere and I swear, 5 minutes before we have to leave he will get in the shower. Okay, I'm getting ticked just thinking about it now! ha ha

Also, having two kids has made it hard for me to be on time, especially because I might as well have 3 kids considering that I have to get 2 kids ready and in the car by myself, while also nagging DH the entire time to get himself ready. Life was so much more simple when it was just me, myself, and I Biggrin

I am always a little early or on time. I can't stand when others are late. Dh is usually right on time.

I'm always early. My mentality is that I plan on how I think it'll take me to get everyone ready/out the door/driven to where we're going, and I add about 10 or 15 minutes because there's always a last minute dirty diaper, traffic accident, spill emergency...whatever.

DH is always late. I think he tends to plan around things working perfectly and when the inevitable something-or-other stops him leaving when he planned, he ends up being late.

It's actually one of the biggest things we argue about, so I'm trying to not plan so much buffer time and realize that I don't need to actually get stressed out when I'm occasionally late.

Used to be always late. Once I started working, now most of the time I am a few minutes early, though it somewhat depends on what it is?
