If a person can't help always being late ( just for 15 mins or 50 mins or even longer), what kind of disorder is this related to ?
I thought it may be related with OCD, but am not sure.
( please move the topic to a different forum where if necessary )

For me, it wasn't inconsiderateness.. at least not in the sense that I thought my time was more valuable than anyone else's time.

The way I see it, habits are like addictions. Ask any Moral Model proponent and they'll tell you addiction is a consequence of personal choice.For me, it wasn't inconsiderateness.. at least not in the sense that I thought my time was more valuable than anyone else's time.
Perhaps not on the surface. But you were habitually tardy because you chose not to stop what you were doing.
I was actually going to respond to this sooner, but I decided to play 3 more games of Ms. Pac-Man instead. What do my actions say? Do I see my time as more important than yours? Or do I see myself as more important than you? It still boils down to being inconsiderate regardless of how you slice it. Well, provided you were actually waiting for a reply anyways...
