Hey I'm a Capricorn, the sign of time and timing.

To me, if you're early you better have someplace to wait. I may not be ready for you.

If you're late, you better have someplace else to go. I'm not waiting for you.

If you're exactly on time & walk in the door at the top of the hour, I'm impressed.

It's easy these days because our vehicles are rolling offices so there's no reason to intrude on someone before time.

15 minutes early, go over notes, a little touch-up to the lipstick, then make your entrance.

Yes, I am always early.

To get the most mileage out of being extremely punctual, I make certain those affected notice by using precise numbers.

I never say "I'll be at your door at 3:30." Whether they are aware of it or not, people hearing numbers ending in 0 or 5 know it a guess.

Instead I will say, "I'll be at your door at 3:37."
They will actually be standing at the front window watching and checking their time piece.  And I want them to see me waiting on the sidewalk for the precise time to arrive.

I do what I say I'll do. PERIOD.
