Yes, Not obsessively so, I just feel that 6:00 really means 6:00, not 6:15 or an hour later. I won't run anyone down but I'll mentally push them from behind. "GO! GO! Will you get out of my way!?! Move it!" Not surprisingly, I find that I am the only one in a lather to get to wherever I am going, no one else is losing hair over it.
By the same token, I dislike being held hostage by another's tardiness. I find it rude and disrespectful to have some one breeze in 30 minutes late saying, " Oh, I just stopped for a coffee and ran into So and So and we had a nice little chat." This is where my patience, of which I have not enough, tends to steam and threaten to boil over. If I have anywhere to go that might involve a traffic delay, I take that into consideration and plan accordingly and always carry my Ipod in case things go right.
A person should be good to their word. If one says “I'll be there at 9:00,” one should make the effort to be there, unless some major THING happens. If I say “I'll see you Around 9:00,” now, that's a different cat :)
Do you get places on time, or do you tend to take things at your own pace?
You are what you think.
If we are what we eat, as the old saying goes,
we may also be what we think. Or how we think, as well as how much we think.
