The thread on people being late got me to thinking. I really don't like when people are late to things, and I hate being the late guy. But the thing that really, REALLY gets my goat is when people have meetings/appointments that run over. For instance: The other night we had Cub Scouts. My wife decided to sign up as an assistant den leader. They had a meeting after the meeting, which started at 7 and should have been done by 8. So, I take my son home, scream through a bath and some homework, get him something to eat and scream back down the road to pick her up by 8. We got there at 8:02 which I figured was fine b/c usually these things have a tendency to run a bit late. We were there until 8:26. :bang: It wasn't her fault at all, the head master person decided they needed to go over a bunch of other things after he told everyone they'd be out by 8. To me, that's a lot more disrespectful of a person's time than being 5 minutes late to meet them.
