Italian timekeeping is something I found difficult to adjust to when I was sent to Rome to work on a contract.

Italians arranged meetings and I would be there early and then they didn't ever turn up until at least half an hour of 40 minutes later and then when they did they would answer their mobile phone and have a conversation in Italian leaving me really late for another appointment.

They never apologised when they put the phone down. When you are frustrated and annoyed because you ahve a million things to be doing it's irritating. I know it is normal for Italians but it doesn't stop it not being annoying.
