To be narked by disorganised people and lateness!

It's really not the end of the world so feel free to tell me if IABU!

Just had a message from DP to tell me he will be two hours late meeting me as he didn't realise how much stuff he had to do today and so he's running late (he had a day off).

I'm narked because I had got up early, so I could leave work early to meet him and planned the day around him arriving at 5!

Grrr.

OK, it's not important in the scheme of things but I'm a bit peed off.

Irritating - but at least he let you know 45 minutes before the arranged time, rather than later!

can you do something else for a couple of hours?

Lateness is something that really winds me up, unless there is a very good reason for it.

Id be peed off to TBH... but i dont think men work like us where they get up early to make sure everything is done. My hubby still does it now, but i tend to just let it go or it will ruin our entire evening. YANBU

It is PITA when people are like that. I feel your pain. My SIL is dreadful at being anywhere on time. We've taken to telling her an hour earlier than everyone else if we're going out now and she's still late!

Hope you still get to do, whatever it was you'd planned though.

Aah, I feel a bit bad about complaining.

He's a lovely,lovely bloke just...incredibly disorganised about this sort of thing.

We'll still have a nice time tonight, I'm sure.

Thanks for the sympathy tho

Drives me nuts too. Just start getting ready earlier, just leave earlier!

People manage when it's work. So it is just rudeness. "It doesn't matter too much if I leave you sitting there waiting for me."
