Default Is it just me or....

.....does it annoy the hell out of you when you tell someone to meet at a certain time to get up to the mountain early and they decide to show up late? I'm talking like 45 minutes, not 5. I'm sitting here waiting for 3 people and I'm a few minutes off of leaving their azzes...

if they aren't there within 15 mins of the go time I would have left them. Totally disrespectful to make the driver wait.

I told them I'm not waiting again... Had a good day though, other than the wind and icey conditions lol

Definitely leave their ass behind. Especially if they are relying on you for the ride. Then you can talk about how rad your day was, while they are all pissed off. Doubt they will do that again once they get burned...

This. I don't mind giving people a lift but don't leave me waiting. I would give you 5 then I am out of there.

I used to tell people to meet an hour earlier but have since changed it to two.... we still get there either barely on time or a good bit late.

This. A few minutes occasionally is pretty much unavoidable. But consistently late or ridiculously late without at least a call or text letting you know what is up? Screw that.
