    Funny when we are in the DR he is on DR time, ahorita time. When we are in the US he seems to be much more time conscious. Except whenever I ask "can you come here I need you for a minute", it is still always "si voy" and I sit and wait...lol. Hmmm maybe there is something to that..lol

    espera momentito could be hours
    sometimes when they are saying I will be right back they say benga ahora. It confused me because I thought it meant come here now. But they were leaving. It could be hours too.
    Pronto could be weeks. Must be they forgot they said pronto.
    I saved my sanity by not believing real time.

    Okay so I know this thread is a few weeks old now but I was out of town that week and didn't see it until now! My husband is ALWAYS on time, in the DR and in Canada, which is fantastic - since I'm the gal that believes if you're on time, you're late; you need to be there 15 minutes ahead! haha. But, if we make a plan...say, I call him when I'm 30 minutes from home hoping I can just pick him up and head out for dinner? As an example. He will have had that 30 minutes advanced warning. But will NOT even start to get ready until I am at home, inside the house. So that 30 minutes heads up means nothing! Aggravating lol. You'd think I would learn over the years but every once in awhile (last Friday included), I still expected him to be ready when I arrived home.
