If he had to be at work by 8:00 am, he'd get there at 5. This put a strain his co-workers who were in his carpool and travel work's traveling group.

This word could also fit for those waiters/waitresses who want to take your order before you've had a chance to even open the menu, and then come back every 20 seconds to check and see if you're ready to order yet.
