    I normally try to arrive exactly on time. I hate the awkward waiting around. People say I'm always late for exams, because I get there literally 2 mins before it's scheduled to start. I normally try to arrive a little late for parties depending on whose party it is.

    Always late.

    For example, the time I agree to meet someone will be the time I leave the house.
    I always do this, tell my mate I will see him (or pick him up) at 6, then leave the house at just before 6.

    Then again I suppose there's a sort of contempt with keeping friends waiting.

    Yep... same here.

    I don't really mean to be late, I just leave things til the last minute (or later than the last real minute... haha!). The problem I have now though is that my friends pre-empt me being at least 10 minutes late and so don't arrive til 10 mins after I say and so then I plan to arrive 10 mins later than the agreed time cos I don't wanna be waiting and then I'm 20 mins later than the agreed time... ... It's like a spiral.

    Everyday of school I was late - even the days I tried really hard to get there on time cos it was assembly or something and embarrassing to arrive late... I just couldn't get up in time on the mornings. I hate mornings so much. Missed a train and was late for an exam at uni this year too... That was my wake up call really I needed to sort my ways out and so now I never miss trains and set off well in advance (even then though I have to fool myself into thinking it takes 15 mins to walk to the train station when really it takes 8 mins so that I will set off 10 mins before!!)

    Late for everything, unless I make a special extra effort, and then the other person decides to be late. :bored:
    exactly this.
    i've stopped making the effort though cos everyone expects me to be late anyway

    always early or one time.

    I hate people who are late when you agree something.

    One of my friends was even late for her graduation yesterday (as she's just told me - only just replying to my text that I sent her at 5pm yesterday...)

    and one of my friends is always SO late, that if she says she'll be at the pub for 8pm, it WILL be 9pm or even 10pm...
