Depends on me and remembering what day it is.

I'm terrible with time management. If I'm not exactly on time, I'm super early, or super late. Got to the bar for a Bills game at like 10 once just because I was up. Bartender let me in because it was raining. Gave me a free shot and a beer if I helped him take the stools down.

Always early. I learned something called calendar integrity at a training course a few weeks ago.

Professionally, early.  Personally, on time.  Never late unless its because of waiting for the woman.

Early enough to account for any variation in my trip to the appointment.  This is mostly 3-5 minutes early.

 

When I was working, it drove me nuts when we started a meeting on time and people arriving late wanted to get caught up.  Sorry, arrive on time.

I am strangely punctual. I’ll be early 100 times for every time I’m late, and if I was going to be 5 minutes or more late I would call to notify the person I was meeting. I always have a book in my car so I’d have something to do when I was early killing time, or being stood up.

For anything in-person, professionally or any kind of appointment (doctor, etc.), I'm always early.

 

For conference calls, I'll dial in 2-3 minutes early.

 

Parties - never early; usually on time, if not a few minutes late to blend into a bigger crowd (I'm a shy dude).

Work I’m on time.  Appointments I’m early.  Social engagements (parties) I like to be just a little bit (10-15 minutes) late.  I hate being among the first to arrive for any party or social engagement unless it’s a dinner reservation.

always early. it's is very disrespectful to be late. if you are late, you are essentially telling the other(s) that you are more important than them. obviously, occurrences outside of your control are the exception.

btw....those of you who are always early, it’s annoying in a professional setting, and especially if it’s a job interview.  Tells me you have nothing better to do with your time than to sit around and wait.

I frequently have interviews.  I am impressed when people come early.  It's more of a red flag to me if I see someone barely make it.

I think Tom Coughlin used to fine players if they didn’t show up 5 minutes before the start

oh, we have lots of better things to do, trust me. however when we give our word, it is gold. those of you, in a professional setting that make others wait past their appointed time are beyond annoying.

Depending on who is hosting/attending a family or friends gathering, I do not want to be the 1st person showing up.  I would make a point of being there 10-15 minutes after the invited time.   Wife’s family on the other hand...they are anywhere from 15-60 minutes late for any gathering not in a restaurant setting.   They are just brutal.

I would get along with Tom Coughlin.... if you’re not at least five minutes early, then you’re late.
