I actually don't mind it. I would never want to deal with it every weekend, but the big, 'slow-paced' rides are three or four time a year occasions, and it's nice to have a few drinks and catch up with people, or meet new people and horses and what have you. That's probably the one time that tardiness doesn't irritate me.
The fewer people there are, the more punctual we can be, but yeah, the big rides are only once in a while (can you tell why?).
Very few people I ride with have any real concept of time. I was raised to always be at an event before it starts, and leave yourself lots of time. So many people come in dragging their asses half an hour late and then take their sweet time getting ready, and boy, does it ever get annoying.
