      20 minutes early.Depends on what it is.
      e.g-For a job interview I would go early and waiting isn't that bad if you have something to do.Like play games or read a book in that 20 mins.

      haha same. I am ALWAYS late. ALWAYS. I hate waiting. I'm also always in denial about it being my fault. I never intend to be late but I am.

      That being said t has affected me. I was late to most exams (if I was coming from home). I have also been on a final warning at all my retail jobs and I have it kind of under control now (I am late to staff briefings still but not only sometimes for the actual starts. And no more than ten minutes).

      I would still rather be late. I hate wwaiting and when someone is later than me, I am so hypocritical and get so mad inside. I am lucky that most people who know me know I will be late, so they know when to really leave their house and when to really expect me. When they come on time, I blame them tbh. I'm like well you know me so what made you think I would be on time?

        20 mins early so i can be comfortable and adjust to the situation i am in

        being 10 mins late will probably make me panic etc

        Being late will cause me to panic, I like to be as punctual. I'm generally always either on time or a few minutes early anyway. Being earlier will give me more time to check out my surroundings, check exit points and become comfortable.
        Besides, you can't be faulted for being early, but in some situations when you are late - it becomes a problem. Say if you have a job, or an exam or a really important meeting etc.

        It actually reminds me of an interesting story I read on reddit about a man who is late to everything and the reason to him being late is that he avoids death everytime he is late and some people catch onto this and he gets sent to do dangerous stuff haha.
