In life, time is the only thing we can’t get more of. We can make more money, buy more stuff but there’s NOTHING we can do to get back lost time. That 5-10 minutes someone spends waiting for the late ADDer could have been spent calling in a prescription for a child with a chronic illness, calling an elderly family member or whatever other important thing the person needs to do. Being on time is difficult for me too so I’ve created systems to make sure that I’m on time because it really is disrespectful to others to be late. Who are you to dictate what someone else gets to do with the time they can’t get back?REPORT ABUSE
