When you hang out with friends in a public place (movies, bowling, restaurant, etc) do you usually meet them at the destination, pick them up, have them pick you up, or does it depend?

Usually whoever is furthest away from the final destination drives to whoever is closest to final destination and we all go over in one car.

I don't like to rely on other people to either pick me up on time, or be ready on time. Learned that the hard way. It's just safer to meet at the destination, and that way if they don't show up on time, they won't affect my ability to go ahead and enjoy the show, etc. I now tell people, "I'll meet you in the lobby at such and such time, and if you aren't there, I'm going to go ahead into the theater because I hate to miss the beginning of the show."

In my experience the only people who could ever possibly find that irritating, are the people who show up late.

For me... more than likely it depends on what I have planned before and/or what I have planned after.

I feel trapped without my own car. When I'm ready to leave a party/event, I want to be able to leave. The only time I'll drive with someone is if there is a charge to park.

I prefer to meet people at the destination. It just seems simpler to me as far as logistics.

We usually meet at the location - I don't like being reliant on someone else when it's time to leave.
