Not turning up.

Post by Sandra »

If you were waiting for someone to arrive but they were late and you couldn't get in touch with them. How long do you wait. What's a reasonable time to give them to show?

Depends on who it is.

If it's someone I owe money to, I'm outta there as soon as the second hand sweeps past the exact minute.

If it's a pretty girl that I'm trying to convince to come inspect my etchings, at least half an hour.

Depends how far they're travelling as well. I really hate lateness but it won't stop me from understanding that it happens sometimes and that reasonable allowances need to be made. It just means I'll be pissed off when they finally arrive. :biggrin:
