AN APPOINTMENT

This is how we make appointments in Sicily:

"I'll definitely be there at ten", said the man [from whom I needed to buy something - I wasn't selling]. "But if I forget, call me."

At 11.40 I made the call: "I'm coming! Just give me a couple of minutes to get there." [He lives in the next street.]

One hour later, he arrived and was absolutely charming.

"Sorry I was a bit late", said he at the end.

"No problem", said I.

After all, it was only two hours and forty minutes.

Manana...is in healthy working order there, too, it seems...not only in Mexico! ;)

I hate waiting. If someone says they're going to be a certain time...that's what I expect. I'm the same way regarding myself. I hate being late. If a time is set, then that's what it is (and again, if I'm the one who has set the time, that's the time I mean). One thing I'm quite pedantic about is being punctual...if I say a time...that's it!
