Exclamation Any more 'last moment' people out there?

My family I guess you can say are last moment people.. I start 10th grade tomorrow.. and Im getting my school stuff this after noon.. lol! I have done this pretty much every year.. and also.. if we have a party to go to or something.. we leave as late as possible.. we still get there though!

Any other last moment type of people out there with any funny stories? And/or know people that are?

I've been late to my own birthday party before.....haha

My family is well known for being late....people have a term for us now...were aparently on "Castle Time" hahaha

It bugs the crap outta me when I go home, my parents are always like "oh we have time, were not going to be late" im always like "go, go, go" because I learned that in the military but even before, waiting for my mom to finish getting ready or for my dad to get his head out from under the hood of his car....im kinda impatient

Way back when, wheni I still lived at home, my mom would say "go get the car started ill be right out....so id go turn it on, then sit int he car reading my ever present book waiting for like an hour...then realize...she hasnt come out yet....so id go back inside and shed be doing her hair, or talking on the phone. 90% of the time were late because she gets a phone call haha

*Insert something witty*

It's genetic! Although it does seem to lessen with each generation. Intead of being 6+ hours late like my Grandma, 2+ hours late like my Mom, I'm usually only about 15 - 45 min late... USUALLY.

But then again, my daughter seems to be regressing the gene. She has absolutely NO clock!!!!

.

I was going to answer two days ago, but put it off... does that qualify me as a last moment person?



Actually, certain things tend to be last moment things, like going to the dentist for that tooth that hurts, mowing the lawn or shopping.

But normally I cannot stand things that are not completed

I hate being late. I try to be there 15-20 minutes early.

The thing that I hate about people being late and making me wait is,
How is there time so much more important than mine?
So I just start whatever I'm doing and people can get there when they want.

My family is very punctual. We always try to be on time or even a little early. Not A LOT, but a few minutes maybe.

On the other hand, my cousin's family is ALWAYS late! When they say what time they're going to be somewhere, we always add at LEAST an hour to that. It's kind of funny because when they're only a half hour late we're like "They're basically on time!" .

My whole entire family is! We are going back to school shopping THIS WEEKEND! School starts on Monday...

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.
