If you have read my book "The Accidental organiser" you will know by now that I do not tolerate lateness and lack of punctuality all that we.. In fact I think people who are late all the time are a real pain. there is no excuse.
So how can one ensure they are not driving others nuts with their lack or respect for time:
* Set your watch a few minutes fast.
* Give yourself more than enough time. leave home 15 minutes earlier than you think you need to.
* Pick up the phone, if you are not going to be ON TIME, call and warn the person waiting for you. even if you are only going to be 5 minutes late.
These are just short and sweet things but will make a huge difference.

available on the website.
PS: Even if your friends joke about your lateness it realy does Peeve them off.
