There are people who are latecomers wherever they go. Lateness is their way of life.
Chronic lateness has spoilt friendships, and it’s a habit that has caused people to lose their jobs. Why, then, are so many people late?
According to some specialists, not arriving on time can be a form of avoidance. You are late for a party, or coming home from work because you don’t want to be where you’re supposed to be. It can also be a habit learned on childhood from a parent or an old brother or sister who also ran late. For others, it’s a result of an inability to judge time.
Whatever reason people have, lateness almost always annoys those of us who are always prompt to attend our commitments.
