My blood boils right now. ( this post is about people who are always late)
I am generally very patient person ,
Today I had a very frustrating experience. I invited my acquaintance for Sunday lunch. Before setting up the time I gave her an option between 2 or 3 pm knowing that she’s been late before and I wanted to accommodate her with enough of time this time. She chose 2pm and I agreed.
The day we were supposed to meet I texted her to confirm if 2pm still works, she confirmed. At 2 pm I’m waiting for her and she doesn’t show up.
So about 15 minutes later I decided to call her to check if she is all right. The third time I called she picked up a phone and tells me that she will be leaving home in 30 min. ( just to be clear it takes her about 30 other minutes to get to the destination)
I let her know that I would be waiting for her but also let her know that I was not very happy with her being late.
So 30 min later after the original phone call she sends me a text in which she tells me that she is not sure now if she would come at all, since I’m upset with her, because she didn’t like that I expressed my dissatisfaction about her being late😳 and starts to blame me that I’m angry for no reason.
And tells me that I’m not waiting for her on the street under the heat, and that I’m in comforts or something like that… I was so shocked to read that.
And I asked her: are you OK? I literally lost my speech ability. And then she started going and going and going with the same exact argument.
At that point I felt like I’m going to get a heart attack or something, cause I felt my heartbeat in my throat.
End of story. I kindly asked her to stop texting me, she didn’t, so I blocked her phone number. And then I left.
What is wrong with you people that are always late? Don’t you get that being so late ( or late at all) is disrespectful?
At least have a courtesy to say: I’m sorry, I’m going to be late. But don’t you dare blame people for getting frustrated with you for your unpunctuality.
I feel so much better now getting this off my chest. Thank you for reading my rant.
