What is on time to you?  Is it 10 minutes early? Is it right on time or can it be 3-5 minutes past?

I go round and round about this with my business partner, whom is also my mother, so we decided to forward this question on to you reader.

Is this a generational problem?  Is it a personality trait? Or does it just depend on the situation?

A Typical Family Dinner :

The phone call is made that dinner will be ready at 2:00 on Sunday.

At 1:15 the doorbell rings and Grandma has arrived.

By 1:45 the majority of the family has arrived.

By 1:50 the cell phones are out and calls are being made to those who have yet to arrive questioning how long they’ll be.

Always in route but not quite there, I state:  “ I am on my way, I am almost there.”  I will end up arriving at 2:00 or 2:05.

 

So is this a generational thing or a personality thing?

 

Or is being to the family dinner at 2:05 just different than being to a job interview 10 minutes early?

We would love to know your opinion.
