Time denial

I am not a patient person.  For those of you who know me personally this may be a suprise (or not).  I can not stand to wait.  When I say we are leaving at 9:30, that means 9:30...not any time that has those three numbers in it.  (as the time stamp will show, I am waiting now to leave and showers have just started...gonna be a loooooog day).
If I make an apointment for 10:00 am, i'll be there at 9:30...I get to the airport 3 hours ahead and will never miss the trailers before a movie...I hate being late! 
SO, needless to say I married a person in "Time Denial"...he is never late to work, but I know for a fact he pushes it to the last second.  His idea of on time is just before the next apointment starts and he never ever is anywhere early (unless I have to go've seen us, sitting in the lobby, the man blissfully looking around while the woman is glaring at her watch grumbling to herself...that us!) 
My husband is a laid back person.  His reply to my frustrations is ..'when have we ever not gotten there...' and we always have gotten to where we were going, just not in my time frame.  
Being late is a form of rebellion...its like telling the world to flip themselves off, 'I will get there when I get there, in the mean time, screw you and wait'...its very rude and disrespectful. 
It also makes me abso-freakin-lutely bat %^& crazy, so I think my hubby gets some enjoyment out of seeing my 'Daffy Duck' style meltdown.  Its the classic type A person marries type at 11.

There are certain things I just don't mess with because my head will explode...taxes, christmas shopping for his mom and bill paying.  All must wait till the last minute. I am not sure what happens if you pay your bills ahead of time, I think they must put yoru name on some list somewhere...
And about the same time everyone is talking about their refund from the IRS, David starts thinking about getting the receips and calling the accountant. (Lord knows how they deal with it) When I was single, I would do my taxes the day I got the the bills the day they came in....I know, stupid!

So as the sound of the 2nd shower starts and people are wandering around looking for breakfast I will close, I feel a rant coming on...

  1. You're funny :)
    I'm going to have to remember "...I mean 9:30 not any time with those numbers in it..."
    I feel your pain, I have people around me who are time deficient.
    Talking about time, did you remember to set your clocks forward last night :)
