This conversation happens daily for millions of us. “I’ll be there in 5 minutes.” But you won’t really be there, will you? You are a lying sack of shit. We all are I guess. It’s gotten to the point now where if you tell someone to meet you for lunch at 12, that you expect them to be there at 12:15 or 12:30. What happened to society? What happened to respecting peoples time? What happened to being prompt? Somewhere between the sun dial and the iPhone, we’ve actually lost our ability to tell time. As a thoughtful human being, the grasping of the concept of time is pretty easy. I say I’ll be there at 7 PM, it means I’ll be there at 7 PM, probably a little earlier because I am considerate. To the majority of the world’s population (my asshole friends included, I still love y’all, not really) timing is(n’t) everything. Whether it’s a girl who wants to be fashionably late, or a friend who thinks the movie theater is gonna save his crew seats because by God, he is who he is. The lateness people exhibit is in direct proportion with how much they actually respect you. The later they are, the less they respect you. The more frequent they are late, the less they respect you. That’s right folks, that’s what it means. There will be people who will defend there tardiness, but is there really a defense? If it happens once, maybe twice, then you know what sure it’s forgivable. If it continues, it shows a pattern, a pattern of disrespect. So if you haven’t left your house when someone calls to ask how far you are, or if you are really 20 minutes away but you are “parking,” this little rant is for you. So with this blog, I’m putting people on blast. I would hope everyone else does the same. My time is just as valuable (if not more valuable) than yours. Why more valuable? Because I respect it. So respect me, and respect yourself. When you make plans, follow through on the timing, or soon enough, you’ll have all the time in the world to do shit…..alone.
