I’m sure many of you have heard of it…those who have visited Hawaii…and many have experienced it if living here…HAWAIIAN TIME is a daily event for people here in Hawaii…We tend to call it LAZY TIME as well…although it’s not really “lazy” it’s just the way things get done here in Paradise…Why rush in paradise…Chillax, no worries!
But what does HAWAIIAN TIME really mean?
“HAWAIIAN TIME” could mean many things…but the best definition is a popular Island expression suggesting a relaxed indifference to precise scheduling: 8 o’clock concerts start at 8:15, parties planned for 8:30 often begin at 9:30, the 10 o’clock newscast seldom appears before 10:10, and sports events may be televised with a three-hour tape delay….and that’s just the beginning of what it means…
Late for work, late for a party…late to fix someones car, to fix someones house, late to get your nails done or hair, late to meet up for a BBQ, late to pay your bills, late to do this, late to do that…there is every excuse in the book why people are late in Hawaii…but most, if not all, are invalid…lol.
Hawaii seems to be the only place in all 50 States that it is not only accepted, but expected that you won’t show up on time…shit, you may not show up at all or call till days later…and the crazy thing is…people will be ok with that! lol
