16 Things Only People Who Are Unbelievably Punctual Will Understand

READING TIME    6 Minutes

You would think that if someone said 8:30 p.m., they would shop up at 8:30, but no! That's not how it works at all. You have a compulsion to get to places on time but that's not how the rest of the world functions leaving you in socially awkward situations like at a restaurant where you're just holding a table all by yourself waiting for you friends to arrive while there's a huge queue outside. It's like people don't understand the value of time and are constantly late just to piss you off!
