Q: Dad, what do you think about people who are always late?
A: It's one of my biggest pet peeves. It's rude, immature and selfish to think that other people should wait for you. Things happen that might cause you to be late on occasion and, if they do, make a phone call. But being repeatedly late is really inexcusable.
