Are you usually late or early when going somewhere that begins at a certain time?

Do you make a point to arrive late or early or does it just happen?

What factors usually cause you to be one or the other? Meaning if you're usually late is it because you commonly oversleep or lose track of time? If you're usually early is it because you get anxious while waiting?

Has being late or early for something really affected the outcome of what you were going to?

Omg I'm always like 20-30 minutes early to things when I'm alone and am able to do so. I get so worried that I'll be late or not get a good seat or will be pinched for time and I just worry and worry and worry until I leave early. I can't relax until I'm there.

When I'm with others and they choose to give us 10 minutes or less of wiggle room for getting places I get really nervous and make sure they leave exactly when they said they were going to leave, because otherwise we might be late and yeahhhh.

I am usually pretty early to things, but then I'll feel awkward about being early and won't get out of my car till I see other people that I know/think are going to the same thing I'm going to. One time, I had to meet up with my family at a restaurant at 6:30. I got there at 6, overestimating the traffic, lol.

I'm always early lol, it annoys me friends so much because I tell them I'll pick them up at 5 and then I get there at 4:50. I just over-budget on time, really. I leave way early thinking it'll take me longer to get there than it actually does.

I'm always early, better early or never in my opinion.

Do you make a point to arrive late or early or does it just happen?
I'M ALWAYS EARLY BEING LATE IS RUDE AND RUDENESS IS BAD

What factors usually cause you to be one or the other? Meaning if you're usually late is it because you commonly oversleep or lose track of time? If you're usually early is it because you get anxious while waiting?
I get ready a couple of hours before I actually have to be there, as I hate last minute rushing.

One time I missed a plane fight from Australia back to France and I had to wait a whole day in the departure lounge, fml. Thats when I took the oath of ALWAYS BEING EARLY!

If it's important early, others late unintentionally.

Just happens. Blame my family.

No... except for the part that we miss out on the beginning! (usually the first half an hour or so..)

Usually more early, probably because I don't want to miss out on anything important.

Uh... Not really.

I'm almost always on time or early. If I'm late it's because I don't want to be somewhere and I'm unconsciously showing it. Or I'm with someone who doesn't know how to be on time for things. I had a friend one year in college who was like that. Totally scatterbrained about scheduling things so I always told her something started a half hour earlier than it did so she could be on time. I hate being late when it's for something I want.

It depends on where it is at. if it is somewhere I want to be, I am always early; the same goes with mandatory stuff like arrivign on time for an exam but if its someplace that I dread to go to, then i am late

Do you make a point to arrive late or early or does it just happen?
I make it a point because I plan these events out

What factors usually cause you to be one or the other?
It all comes down to my mood

Has being late or early for something really affected the outcome of what you were going to?
Yes it has

Are you usually late or early when going somewhere that begins at a certain time? It depends on my transport planning.

Do you make a point to arrive late or early or does it just happen? It just happens, mostly due to traffic or constant chatting.

What factors usually cause you to be one or the other? Meaning if you're usually late is it because you commonly oversleep or lose track of time? If you're usually early is it because you get anxious while waiting? Sometimes I have overslept. It makes me panic.

Has being late or early for something really affected the outcome of what you were going to? I'm usually late if I miss my bus for work study.

I'm usually early and I make it a point to arrive early. I have a fear of being left behind if I'm late, which explains why I show up early. If I'm late it's because I overslept or because I was early, everyone else was late, and I got sick of waiting and headed back to my room.

I try to make it a point not to be late for anything important. I don't mind if I'm late or miss comparatively minor things, like I slept and missed a chance to head downtown yesterday. I wasn't too worked up about that.

Early to things far away, and late to things near by.

I don't do well with estimations XD

If it's relevant, I always show up to football (soccer) matches at least an hour beforehand. Like to see the stadium fill up before my eyes. :)

90% of the time, I'm late. Not by a significant amount of time, mind you - maybe about five - ten minutes or so - but I'm usually late for things. For example, back in high school, I used to be late for class a lot. Looking back now, it was pretty bad but I didn't care a whole lot at the time. Generally, my lateness is because I'm that much of a procrastinator that I don't get ready to leave until the very last second and then I'm scrambling right before I leave. It also doesn't help that I can't drive myself places (I don't have a license), so if whoever's driving me somewhere is late for whatever reason, I'm late too. :x I'm also pretty bad at estimating how long it'll take me to get somewhere, and that contributes to my constant lateness as well. I'm not usually so late that it affects whatever I'm doing, though.

My biggest problem with punctuality is when I have to be somewhere in the mornings. 8| I haaaaate waking up, so I tend to lay in bed as long as possible and then have to rush to get up and get ready afterward. Sometimes I end up being late. :x

In general though I'm very punctual. 8) It drives me nuts when people are late.

Generally early. Sometimes late. Never on time.

Do you make a point to arrive late or early or does it just happen?
It just happens I suppose.

What factors usually cause you to be one or the other? Meaning if you're usually late is it because you commonly oversleep or lose track of time? If you're usually early is it because you get anxious while waiting?
Just how quickly I move to get to where I want to be, or how much time I give myself to get there, stuff like that. I do sometimes lose track of time and there was that one time I overslept but it turned out the person I was meeting had as well...

Has being late or early for something really affected the outcome of what you were going to?
Yes, one time I was meant to be going to see a University. I missed my only way of getting there. Since then I've tred not to be late, with varying success levels.

I'm generally late for stuff. In high school, I would always try to sleep as much as possible and end up showing up 5-10 minutes late for school every day. This was towards the later years. My freshman and sophomore years I think I actually made it on time mostly.

If I'm meeting up with friends, I'm hardly ever early. And that's just because Toronto public transportation is not reliable at all lol. I'll either be right on time or late. I don't think it's too much of a big deal because my friends aren't the most punctual either so being late just results in waiting less lol
