Knowing that everyone is so busy I think it becomes that much more important to respect the time of everyone around us.Screen Shot 2014-08-12 at 8.04.13 PMI feel like I spend hours of my life waiting on people.

A couple weeks ago I reached my limit on people wasting my time.

The Thursday night before our garage sale started (after spending the entire day getting ready for the sale), Jordan & I had a list of errands to get through while Hunter was at cello group.  We were quick and got everything done AND picked up Chipotle for dinner before we went back to get Hunter.

So, group is supposed to end at 6:30 and we were waiting several minutes before that.
At 6:35 we were waiting.
6:40 – still waiting
6:45 – getting impatient
6:50 – cranky

I finally decided to walk into the building and get Hunter.   About the time I got inside kids started walking out.  I still went in and told Hunter that we needed to go since he was standing near his teacher and some o f the other kids.

Seriously – the group is scheduled for 1 hour and she kept them for almost an hour and a half!!!

If practice is going to last that much over the time, I think that the parents should be notified ahead of time – our time is valuable!!!Screen Shot 2014-08-12 at 7.58.00 PM

I get that sometimes things run a little late!  But when it is almost half an hour it is not OK!!!  (And, for the record, this is the same teacher that is raising prices for cello lessons!!!)

Does it irritate you when other people don’t seem to care that your time is valuable?

Happy Wednesday!!
