Say it in Singlish

Singlish: "Oh, you meant to tell me that you're on rubber time."

In American English: "You should have told me you were going to take your sweet ass time."

The Singaporean ladies at my new workplace taught me this one. So when someone tells you that they're going to meet you at 7 and then decide to show up at 8:30, they're on "rubber" time. It's a bit of a stretch from the original time they said.

Aaron and I live our lives on rubber time. I'm sorry for those of you on standard time.
