Hello everyone.


I'm a new member and I'd like to talk about punctuality. [STRIKE]....yes punctuality.[/STRIKE]

When I talk to someone on the phone or meet them face to face, [STRIKE]and[/STRIKE] [STRIKE]told[/STRIKE] I might tell him (or them) "I will wait for you at [STRIKE]10:0:0 exactly or[/STRIKE] ten o'clock sharp, OK?"

But if someone is late, maybe one hour or more, what do I do? I feel angry and [STRIKE]heat[/STRIKE] hit(?) him and say "Why are you [STRIKE]came[/STRIKE] late? [STRIKE]!!!!!.[/STRIKE] I told you [STRIKE]at[/STRIKE] 10 o'clock not 11!" [STRIKE]!!?!?[/STRIKE]


[STRIKE]I'm[/STRIKE] I [STRIKE]very very[/STRIKE] really like punctuality and I like people to take it seriously. [STRIKE]people .[/STRIKE]


Now tell me - What [STRIKE]are you doing[/STRIKE] do you do when you [STRIKE]have[/STRIKE] are in [STRIKE]the[/STRIKE] a similar [STRIKE]station[/STRIKE] situation?


[STRIKE]Notic[/STRIKE] Note: If I have made any mistakes, please fix [STRIKE]it[/STRIKE] them. a[STRIKE]nd share with us[/STRIKE]

Welcome to the forum. Please see my amendments/corrections above in red.

I really hope that you don't hit people when they arrive late! If I arrange to meet someone at 10 o'clock, I wait until 10.15, then I phone them or send them a text message asking where they are. If I don't get a reply, I leave at 10.30. If they arrive before 10.30, I say "Why are you late, and why didn't you contact me to warn me?"

Note: I have moved this thread to "Ask a Teacher". Whilst it was a question about what a native speaker would say in a particular situation, it also required multiple corrections so it's better placed here where lots of learners will see those corrections, and they can learn something too.

All the best for you.

I hope you will continue to learn from this forum. As you can see, I have made more amendments in red to your post above. You will find fewer corrections if you follow the rules of written English:

- Start every sentence with a capital letter.
- End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
- Use full standard English words (ie, don't use "wanna" or "Wooooooooow").

My pleasure.

That is a rather strange thing to say. "[It's] my pleasure" is one of the standard responses to "Thank you".

Remember to put a full stop at the end of every ​sentence.
