Lies for punctuality

“The trouble with being punctual is that nobody’s there to appreciate it.”

[ Franklin P. Jones ]

That has happen to me a lot of times, as I’m very punctual of me. Have been anyway, not so sure any longer because people often get me to wait for them. I don’t like waiting. Who does?

Mrs Lifecruisers draws dressage horse

I once had an old friend, she was a pensioner. We shared a horse together and because of her skill, she was giving me private riding lessons too.

She was supposed to pick me up at the train station with her car and then we would drive to the stable. We decided a time to met. She never was there in time and she had the most fantastic stories about what have happened that had delayed her.

That wasn’t the biggest problem. It was the fact that she also should give me a lift to the station after the riding lesson and I had to catch a train to go to my work in the city - in time… Yes, as you have guessed, if I would have to relay on her, I would have been late every time.

So, what did I do?

I lied. Sometimes it’s necessary with a so called white lie. Instead of going through all that annoying stress mess every time, I told her that I had to make it to an earlier train than I actually needed. That way I was on the station about 10 min before the train should leave the station and I didn’t have to be stressed at all.

There are some people that just can’t be in time.

Sometimes it’s better to look for another, not so obvious solution.

    Wise woman.

    I used to be punctual all the time too. Now, I’m more like your pensioner. My only excuse is that I always think I have more time than I do to fit in a whole bunch of stuff before I leave to go somewhere. Like right now, for instance. I’m busy visiting blogs and making comments, but I should probably have started off by getting ready for work first and then if I still had a couple extra minutes, let myself visit the blogs…not the reverse. I’m bound to be late to work. Thank goodness they are very forgiving of this…mainly because I always make up for it, and then some.

    I’m thinking mrhaney fell asleep in the middle of typing, poor thing. :razz:
