It never means 5 minutes so stop kidding yourself and disrespecting others or at least if you are going to say it really mean it.
We hear it all time time.
“I will call you in 5 minutes”
“Just give me 5 minutes and I will be with you”
“I will be 5 minutes late”
It is never 5 minutes is it? Where I am from if you tell someone you will be there in 10 minutes you better be there in 10 minutes, the same applies for 5 minutes.
Have some respect for yourself and others and be accurate with your time keeping.
