Remember: Early is on time, and on time is late.
Is your motto in life, "Running late, but I'm on the way!"?
"Calm down, I'll be there in five minutes!"
"I'm not always there when you call, but I'm always on time." Well ahead of time actually.
It's not a crime to be on time.
Not always there when you call, but ALWAYS on time.
The early bird catches the worm. And then has to play on their phone for 15 minutes waiting for all the late birds.
"Oh, you're running late?" AGAIN.
