Smart saying I heard today on time management:
Early is on time.
On time is late.
Late is unacceptable.
Having grown up in a very precise environment, I can certainly appreciate this.
Seriously, from a Yekke (Jewish German background), we were taught to be 15 to 30 minutes early–i.e. on time–for everything.
I remember starting to get “little” reminders to get ready and get out the door well in advance and numerous times before the clock struck.
Fashionably late or any other type is not in the vocabulary and frankly is a complete f*ckin insult. 😉

Remember the “Soup Nazi” in Seinfeld?
After some silly insulting encounter, the Soup Nazi refuses to give Jerry any soup saying in his deep accent, “No soup for you.”
Well, when I walked in the local pizza store and saw this sign on the counter, I couldn’t help but laugh a little.
It’s the real thing…and it says, “Sorry No Soups Tonight.”
And it’s sort of sloppily written on a guest check and placed in a Coca Cola holder.
I wasn’t too disappointed with the news though, since who gets the soup at a pizza joint anyway? 😉
