I’m Late, I’m Late, for a Very Important Date
Cute for Rabbits, Not for People
Punctuality is the characteristic of being able to complete a required task or fulfill an obligation before or at a previously designated time. “Punctual” is often used synonymously with “on time”.
Punctuality can be the difference between coming across as a disorganized, disrespectful, self-absorbed moron (can you tell my position on this) or someone who has their sh*t together.
What people think about you when you show up on time:
This person respects me, my time, themselves and their time; and I appreciate that. I will not have to waste my dagger eyes on them today.
This is person is reliable. They must have one of those fancy cellular telephones that tells them what time it is.
He/she is accountable for their actions, which makes me think they can handle responsibilities. Make them the CEO!
I can tell that this person is disciplined; they must exercise self-control over other aspects of their life. I bet they don’t do crazy things like lie about where they are and then post themselves at a different place on social media. #dumbass
He/she would set a good example for the other people on my team. (Or could replace that person who is always late.)
What people think about you when you show up late (like always late – not every once in a while “life happens” late. I mean serial lateness):
How rude! This person is wasting my time. They suck. They are self-absorbed and have no regard for others. I want to punch this person.
Now my schedule is thrown into total chaos. This is stressing me out, because I don’t know when I can eat. Do I have time to pee? And I can never figure out why these people come running in all out of breath and frantic. I mean if they were rushing, wouldn’t they be on time?
I wonder what kind of reputation this person has. Probably not good. Just writing this BLOG is getting me all worked up. I need to get my Sharpie as I am crossing “friends” off my list as we speak.
This person can’t figure out how long it takes to get somewhere, and that is dumb. I’m pretty sure there is an app for that. (That was sarcasm.) This person’s life is totally unmanageable.
Did they think no one would notice or care that they were late? This person must lack self-respect. They probably post absurd things on social media. #getalife
Don’t be late. Just don’t do it. Leave extra early and spend 20 minutes sitting in your car catching up on Telltale Ten posts. It’s a win-win.
