Like my grandfather used to say, “If you’re not 10 minutes early, you’re late.” I had punctuality engrained in me from an early age. So much so that I will have a full blown panic attack if I even think I’m going to be late for something. While this has helped me with jobs and deadlines, it did not prepare me for dealing with the other 98% of people I’d meet who for whatever reason simply cannot show up on time for anything. I think we all have at least one friend we have to tell dinner starts at 7 when it actually starts at 8, just so they’ll show up only a little late. Okay, thanks for reading my rant. Oh, and if you’re one of these unapologetically late people, please, for the love of god, get your f*cking sh*t together.

You know what's even worse? When you work and have class right after so no matter what, every time you're late to class it looks like you stopped to get starbucks but you wanna be like oh no professor I work at Starbucks and made this drink for myself when I got off and I'm not late because i stopped to get coffee I'm just late bc that's just the way I am #BaristaLife
Sorry I was late for work. A guy at 7-11 put 23 creams in his coffee and I had to watch him put each one in.
