My biggest pet peeve EVER

Want to know what my biggest pet peeve  is? I mean, this makes me crazy,  this makes my heart beat fast and my hands sweat, ready? Tardiness! I hate to be late anywhere. My mom tells me that when I was little, I would always be the first one up in the mornings and the first one ready for school,while my brother on the other hand, not so much.  She literally had to drag him out of bed.

My mom also says that  she has no idea where I get it from. I don't think its from her.  I can not and will not be late. I  rather not go if I know I will be late. I wake up extra early in the mornings just to  make sure I leave the house by 8:30am. If its  8:31am and we still haven't left, its like I start hyperventilating. I can't help it, its something that's completely out of my control. Thank goodness that my hubby is usually pretty good about being on time to places because if not, we would have a problem.

This does not just apply for work. I don't like to be late for church, appointments, parties. I don't like to be late period. I  will start getting ready hours before. I have how long it takes me to get Ralphy ready down to the minute. Hey, I'm a planner. People always tell me, you can't plan for things like traffic and my answer to that is, only people that are always late say that.  I always "plan" for extra time and the amount of time really depends on how far we are going.  For example, I always plan  for heavy traffic, no matter what day of the week it is and for other unforeseen things.

Everyone has a pet peeve and this is mine. I hate to be late and I hate it when other people make me late. Some people might say I'm a little nuts when it comes to the whole tardiness thing and I will have to agree. I actually think its a good thing. Maybe, if I  wasn't so psychotic about it then it wouldn't be too bad, oh well, its not happening.

What are you biggest pet peeve? Is anyone else out there psychotic about being tardy like me? If there is, I think we should get together asap.

ha that is funny. I am the same way when it comes to being late. My girlfriend made fun of me today cause I left an hour and a half early for a chiropractic appointment. The appointment was 45 minutes away and I actually thought I should have left earlier. I got there a half hour early.

My dad always shows up early for everything so that is where I get the habit from. My other pet peeve is drivers that cut people off or tailgate. I can't stand it and it is so dangerous.

Girl you would hate me because I am perpetually running on what I like to call "mom time" which means I'm 10-15 min late to everything.

Tardiness is a big one for me as well. I HATE when others are late, or make ME late for a set appointment.
