If there is one thing I learned long time ago, it is that -there is no excuse for being late. It is always so embrassing to explain and give excuses as to why you are late for whatever reason.
However, there are times that I don’t feel any guilt especially when I have clearly indicated that I cannot make it and the other party continues to insist that the time cannot be changed. Such times I feel like such a deviant but I also realize that you can only do as much as you are willing to.
Today was such a day when I did not feel even the smallest bit of guilt. Don’t get me wrong I respect other people’s time but I also respect mine and if I happen to be a boss and you get late; you are fired!
It amazes me how bosses can put a very serious impenetrable face whenever someone gets late but not when one is working late. Makes me want to smile.
