He says it only takes him 10 minutes to shower - NOT. He is very respectful of people so it's not lack of respect either. It's just the way he is AND IT DRIVES ME CRAZY and has been for the 28 years we've been married. I HATE being late and I get stressed, but I've come to realize he is who he is and I just sit quietly and wait for him and try to remain calm and unstressed. Our friends all know him so we all tell him to be there 1/2 hour earlier than they really want him! If he ever catches on to this, then I'm stumped as to what to do next.
