f**king having to WAIT! Do you know how damn annoying it feels to be waiting? Some Malaysian stupid ways of being punctual is to come a minimum of 30mins LATE! The worst is to be waiting stupidly while the person is happily being late doing something else without letting you know!
WHAT the heLL! At least have the courtesy to tell that you will be late because you purposely wanted to do something else instead of leaving the person to wait for you damn wondering what time you will actually come! Times has changed. It used to be girls taking damn a long time and not being punctual but now guys are picking up the trend too.
The worst line anyone can use is "I'M ON THE WAY" and show up 4 hours later? Hahahaha! You gotta be kidding!! Who the heLL will believe that? Especially when you know it takes maximum an hour to reach the destination from where ever they set out from. It is a different story if you have to drop by many pit stops before saying that you are really "ON THE WAY"
ON THE WAY means YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GO ANYWHERE ELSE AND COMING STRAIGHT TO THE DESTINATION. It is not when you are in the toilet doing business! It is not when you're taking a shower! It is not when you are eating! It is not when you are on the phone gossiping away! IT IS YOU BEING THE CAR, DRIVING TOWARDS YOUR APPOINTMENT!
5-10 mins late is still OK.
30 mins late.. starting to get on my nerve.
1 hour late.. "Hm.. you wait la.. you won't get away with this.."
2 hours late.. "What do I care if you are coming or not. I'm probably too annoyed to meet up"
3 hours late.. "Are you sure I'm still gonna be waiting???"
4 hours late.. "Hoho, dont bother coming.. I can't be bothered with such an unethical character!"
There is another type of waiting which makes you just want to kill someone by the end of it. The POINTLESS WAIT. You had earlier made an appointment. All confirmed and set. 30mins before the appointment, your friend tells you the appointment has to be postponed to later time due to unforeseen circumstances. Postponed to 3 hours later. Fine, you don't mind but 3 hours later? Your friend tells you yet again the appointment will have to be postponed to another day. Won't you feel like punching someone???
I always try to make it a point to be punctual. Well, if I'm not driving then.. of course I'm most probably unable to make sure I'll be on the dot but at least when I know I'm going to be late, I will let the person know why and by when should I be done.
So please people, if you know you are going to be late. Just let the person know instead of being quiet about it leaving the person to wait. Such a coward act! What if it was you waiting?? How would you feel??? THINK ABOUT IT!!
