On my top 10 list of annoyances and probably ringing in at number 1 is people who arrive late. Why can't people arrive on time? I mean really, how hard is that? I understand that sometimes you run a little bit later than you expect, but that is why god invented man who invented the god damn cell phone! Call me and let me know you are running late!
I constantly have customers who tell me they will drop off a computer at X time, only to arrive either A) whenever they feel like it or B) Never show up at all!
I also have some friends who will say they will arrive at X and AWAY arrive close to an hour or more later. They use words like "I'll be there soon!" which to me says at MOST 10 mins. To them soon means more than 30 mins (or whenever they feel like arriving).
What really bugs me is these same individuals have no problem arriving to work on time. So that says they don't care, and are just plain RUDE!.
Now I might be an odd person, but if I tell a customer I will be at their house at 10:30 but realize that I'm not going to get there on time and it might be 10:31 or later I pickup my cell phone and call them.
I don't really hate on people who are late, but who call and set a new time of their arrival and then arrive by that time. That's ok.
It's those other late ****ers that need to be taken out back and beat with a really large object.
