Gandalf, who is ever-quotable is well known for saying:
A wizard is never late, nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.
I often cite this to re-assure my friends who're being harsh on themselves for being late or behind on some goal.
But one friend retorted, that "That's a lie. He left the hobbits waiting in Bree, when he was delayed by his meeting with Saruman,"
So I'm wondering what are all the other times where Gandalf was late or early, either in The Hobbit or the main trilogy. I'll accept answers including scenes from the movie, but only if they focus on the books.
For the sake of the question, I'm interested in where, from an outside perspective, Gandalf said or implied he'd be somewhere at a fixed time and wasn't there roughly on time – whether deliberate on his part or not.
