I love my best friend but I get effing annoyed by her bad habit of always being late.
A few min late never mind cos sometimes traffic is bad, but how is it possible that everytime we meet, she is always late by at least one hour?!
There was once she told me that she would be reaching in five min (and this was already 25min after our agreed meeting time) so I went to get a seat first at the café.
She only arrived forty five min later and by then, we only had thirty min left to eat because the café had a time limit. I was so angry that day I swear I really felt like walking away and going home.
Like what the F if you got something on and cannot meet, then just effing say lah! Don’t always double book so many appt and expect people to understand and forgive you. What the f.
This is just damn disrespectful of other people’s time lah. Worst part is, everytime I try to reason this out with her, she’ll find 1001 excuses to explain why she was late and apologise but what good use is her sorry when she’s just gonna do it again?
Late to failure in life
At first, I thought that this was just a fluke, but after a while, I noticed that my friend was consistently late and seemed to be doomed to fail at most of her endeavors. From her job to her relationships and even her finances, my friend seemed to always be struggling and never able to get ahead.
As time went on, I realized that my friend’s chronic lateness was a symptom of her larger issue—her inability to plan and execute her goals and projects. She was always focused on the short-term, trying to get things done as quickly as possible without taking the time to plan and strategize. This had a knock-on effect on her life as she was always running late, missing deadlines, and unable to complete projects.
At first, I thought that my friend was just unlucky and that she was doing the best she could given her circumstances. But, as time went on, I realized that this was not the case. My friend was making bad decisions and not taking the time to plan and strategize. She was always taking shortcuts and not thinking things through, which inevitably led to her failure in life.
