Punctuality rules

Folks I'm a bit pissed today. When someone promises you he/she will meet you at a specific time on a specific day, why would he/she not turn up? You can call me a more-than-perfect Ms.Punctuality, hence I expect the same from another and I don't think that's unreasonable. And if for some reason I won't be able to make it, I will always make sure I let the other person know that well ahead, so that they don't miss out on their lunch or their sleep waiting for me. I certainly will not make anyone feel stood up unless I met with a serious misfortune that left me stranded in an island with no human civilisation, mobile phones or computers..not forgetting a rescue plane!
Now I guess my friend got busy with some very important matter last night that he couldn't let me know before I was about to be stood up for, ehhh like one hour?? And now it's today and he hasn't still emailed or called me for a well-overdue apology. Some people think that it's ok for others to sit around waiting for them and then go back when they reach the point of no-turning-back in boredom. And then they expect everything to be ok the next day?? But I think it's really slack, out of character and lack of consideration to make someone wait for you for a long time, not turn up at all and not call atleast in the next 24hours to say sorry! Don't you think so? As I already left a message for him while waiting yesterday, I'm not going to call him again neither am I going to meet him atleast for another few weeks, even if he's going to turn up a day ahead of planned time.Fullstop.
Have you been stood up by someone or have you stood someone else up this way and if so what were the reasons and do you think it was fair?

Initially it used to happen a lot due to my stupid work hours, but these days things are absolutely cool, since i have stopped promising anybody or should i say plan to meet anybody in advance, if i am free then only i give somebody a call and if he or she is free then i proceed, sameways the people whom i meet usually know my schedule well so if i am in town they usually drop in at my home after 8 in the night or at my gym before 9.

Miranda said...

Yes, its also my biggest pet peeve when ppl are constantly late. Though it could be that Im anal about being on time to meet ppl.

jkhkhjkh said...

This is about office meetings?! I thought...Oh! what the hell.. I am sorry.

Dewdrop said...

Im usually before time on my appointments, and so obviusly I find myself waiting more than making others wait. Btw, waiting is painful.

You deserve better.

Keshi said...

hehe Saby...I know that Indians r not very punctual lol! But I'm of Indian origin and I'm punctual so why cant others make an effor too? Actually it's not in ur blood, it's in ur head.

Arz000n I can imagine u getting ready way too early for a meeting with any girl lol!

KJ good on ya!

Pearly I so agree :)

Charm lollz gosh u made a girl break up with ya because of ur slackness???

South that's real a good approach to dealing with misunderstandings such as these...ur cool!

WB Miranda muahhh! hehehe so ur just like me :)

Pithaly wake up duh!

Dewdy I definitely expected punctuality from ya :) cos u dun sound like someone who'd be really slack as not to turn up on time. Ur a very organised gal.

Sure I do Rex n u too! Huggz n thanks :)

Ram I dun u'stand what u wrote...someone plz translate. thanks!


Keshi said...

ok I broke my promise :) I called him yday to find out why he missed our lil meeting and why he hadn't called in a day...I was worried he was dead lolz! Well he wasnt dead, he was very much alive and his excuse for not turning up was that he was supposed to fly back home Mon morning and meet me that evening, but unfortunately he missed that flight so he flew in Tue morning (he goes to remote areas on work)...and where he was on Mon was a mobile blackspot n he thought I'd u'stand anyways?? How am I supposed to know abt that? And he wants to meet me this evening hmmm...am I supposed to forgive him, because he DID arrive on Tue and did not ring me till I rang him - duh! Whateva...I guess good friends need to be forgiven...what d u say?


Arz000n said...

Good friends needs to be pampered and accepted for their stupidity ;)

Keshi said...

thanxaton Arz000n...I dunno abt the pampering :) but I sure do accept good friends for whatever they r...be it stupid, late, big-mouth,forgetful,smart-ass or just plain dumb...as long as they have a good heart...hehe.
