The clock in the kitchen shows five minutes before Eight when I Left.A good quarter of an hour I need to the Italians, I'm agreed – to Eight.As is so often the have ichvorab scheduled in too little time, dawdled and me ona last-minute deal made, and then the Transfer made, I've pushed the whole day in front of me. To arrive when I rode in a quarter of an hour spätim Restaurant, I'm the last. My Friends see about my delay,although they have been waiting for with the Order of extra on me.
I have to admit: When Meeting friends, I have not taken the basis of the punctuality of long exactly. On the contrary, for a long time, I believed even to come a few minutes later for an appointment, signaling the other a certain amount of Serenity.From appointments to six o'clock, so shortly after six, to eight quarter after eight. And as is often the case, when it is already late, came often the in-between: The washing machine took ten minutes longer or my mother called.Sindja only a few minutes, I thought to myself. Often my lateness is also not widely noticed – the other Person was also late.
With one exception: One of my best Friends is an extremely punctual man. At our Meeting with them is always either a little early or a Minute late. If you are running late due to traffic, even by five minutes, you know. On the one hand, I found the to me always very accommodating, on the other hand, is a bit exaggerated. I came, however, always to late:for a Change I had missed the U-Bahn, times me with a Nachbarnim hallway busy.
"And, what was now, once again, the reason is part of My time on you?" greeted them annoyed me at some point audibly, as I showed up again a quarter of an hour late to our Meeting. On my typical excuses she replied:"don't you Know, my time belongs to you. Even if I'm home I'll be waiting for you. Why do you manage to be on time at the doctor or at the airport, but when we meet, comes before, always something in between?“
I could say nothing at first. "It's only a few minutes," I defended myself eventually, but she remained persistent. "There are a couple of minutes, in which I don't really start anything else or you can conclude, and I'm just so rings, to wait on you." I apologize to her, and we hooked the topic.
However, your response did not let me go. The friend was right:Why was I not allowed to be "important" appointments on time or even ahead of time, but I'm at a Meeting with her all the time in the world?For example, in a recent interview. To not have to come just too late, search the pond, a suitable train connection out of a undplante me two days before that, a buffer of 15 minutes.Only for the case that S fails to track or anything is different between them.Because what would think my potential next employer finally from me, if I would not come to the interview on time?A Job, I thought iwould never get so sure.Updated Date: 17 June 2020, 12:21
