I’m quite aware I’ve been posting mostly negative things lately about ML. I promise I’ll make a positive post after this one. I just feel like I have to get this off my chest.
Manileros’ concept of being timely is simply nonexistent.
Everyone automatically assumes that everyone else is going to be late, so we take that into account every time we meet somewhere. I’ve never met anyone at X time and actually met with them at that time. I did at first.
Now I subtract 30 minutes to an hour to that time, depending on the situation. But it’s a mind game too. You don’t know if the other person ALSO calculates that into their time, so you end up in awkward situations where you say you’re there but you’re actually 30 minutes late.
Don’t be dumb.
