I hate waiting for people that are late. Here is why. It tells me your time is more valuable then mine. It is so selfish. When your are late, it's like saying the world revolves around you. You are special, so no harm in being late.

When you tell someone you are going to do this or that at this time, I expect that you are going to honor that commitment. It is like a verbal contract. Lets do this at this time, you say ok. Then you are late. You broke the contract. It is also a control issue. You are in control now, and your controlling all the people who are waiting for you, because you are late.

I have been known to not wait for late people. I have and will leave them behind.

Admittedly, I have been late periodically. Yes, I have been late to work (like summer school) because I really did not want to go at all, or late to meet up with a friend.  Sometimes you get phone calls, traffic problems, you know the list. Once in a long while is forgivable.

To be chronically late is beyond annoying, its hateful.
