She Drove Her Family Crazy With Her Habitual Lateness, but When They Ditched Her So They Could Make Their Flight, She Was Shocked

A woman recently wrote to an online forum about how she ditched her sister to get to the airport. Her sister was late for everything, and she had warned her repeatedly that they needed to leave on time. Here’s what she had to say.

The woman wrote, “My 21-year-old sister and my mom are always late. My dad and I prefer to be early, so it drives us nuts.”

“We are currently in another province for my cousin’s wedding,” she added. “When we booked our flights a month ago, we agreed that I would drive everyone to the airport.”

A month before the trip, the woman warned her sister not to be late. She told her time and again that she wanted to leave plenty of time in case of any hiccups along the way.

They were flying out of a busy airport. The airline recommended arriving two hours before departure. The woman told her sister she wanted to add another 30 minutes on top of that to be safe.

She told her sister that they needed to leave by 10:00 a.m. at the latest. However, at 8:00 a.m. on the morning of the trip, her sister was still in bed. Worse still, she hadn’t packed yet.

She knocked on her sister’s door and reminded her they were leaving at 10 sharp. She reminded her sister again as she got out of the shower at 9.

At 9:50 a.m., the family packed their bags into the car. The woman gave her sister a 10-minute warning. They waited in the car, but there was no sign of her.

At 10:00 a.m., the woman started the car and backed out of the drive. Her mother told her to wait for her sister, but she refused and set off for the airport.

Her sister called their mom. She couldn’t believe they’d left without her. But the woman knew that she had given her sister plenty of warning.

The family arrived at the airport with 20 minutes to spare. The woman was relaxed and had coffee. Her sister had called an Uber and managed to get there just as the plane was boarding.

Was she right to leave?

The woman’s sister and mother were shocked that she drove off, but she felt that she was more than fair. She wrote to an online forum to ask if she’d made the right move.

One poster said, “You told her repeatedly. She acknowledged repeatedly. She clearly understood that you’d leave at 10 on the dot; she just didn’t believe it. She should have.”

While another replied, “She’ll believe you next time.”
