“My parents are consistently late for everything, the man said. “I think it’s a Latin thing. I hate being late. I think it’s disrespectful.”

His sister’s wedding started at 2:30 p.m. They live about 30 minutes from the church. Surely nothing could go wrong?

Midday madness

When noon arrived, his parents had not even started to get themselves ready. They were sitting around, relaxing.

Total apathy

This wasn’t the man’s first rodeo. He’d seen this behavior before, and he’s over trying to encourage them to be on time.

His sister was livid. She said it was his responsibility to ensure they got to the wedding on time. However, it was the first he’d heard of it. In fact, he told her that he didn’t even want to stay there.

Everyone started calling his parents. They weren’t ready yet. When they finally showed up, they were a full 35 minutes late.

His sister delayed the service to wait for her parents. However, because there was another wedding the same day, the service was cut short even more.

The man didn’t mean to cause any problems, but he is sick and tired of ensuring his parents get ready in time. He reached out to an online forum for a temperature check and received some interesting responses.

One poster wrote, “If they need to be reminded to get ready on their daughter’s wedding day, they need a live-in caretaker. Unless you were specifically asked to get them to the church, that’s not your job. If your sister truly thinks you messed up the wedding by being on time, I think it’s a good time for some space between you and your family.”

While another commenter said, “Next time, don’t stay with them. You shouldn’t need to prod them to be on time for their own child’s wedding!”
