|I have a friend, I'll call him Jeff, not his real name it's Jeffrey. He's a nice guy and I enjoy doing stuff with him, but one of the annoying things he does is treat his time as more valuable than mine.|
We usually meet for lunch and it always goes the same way. We speak on the phone and he says "call me when you're at my building." I walk to his office which is 5 minutes of my time. I call him and I often have to wait another 5 minutes for him to get downstairs.
The other day we were meeting for lunch and I needed cash and knew there was a cash machine in his building so I called when I got to the ATM, and I was able to get cash and still be there before him.
This pisses me off, because my time is valuable too. Jeff's lucky that I don't have that many lunch buddies, so I put up with it.
The best solution that I've come up with is to call when I leave my building and tell him I'm just about there, so that the 5 minutes I walk gives him time to get downstairs.
Have you had similar situations to this with "late people" and how did you handle it?
