“Yes we’re friends, but you aren’t important enough for me to show up on time.” Isn’t that the statement that is being made when we constantly show-up late? From the perspective of the person waiting, that is how it feels at times. “I don’t really care that my lateness causes ripples to everyone’s schedules…my time is more important than yours.”
Today it’s “San Francisco Bay Gourmet Coffee – Breakfast Blend” brewed in the Keurig that is fueling my furiously typing fingers. It’s a new brand that I bought on Amazon and it’s actually really good. It has a solid, bold flavor that is full and pungent. It’s also interesting because the k-cup doesn’t actually have a full “cup” attached (see below). Rather, it’s the top portion of a normal k-cup with a mesh-like bag containing the coffee beans hanging underneath. It’s priced a little more reasonably than other brands, it brews quickly and it tastes great!
OK, let’s be real, most people are late on occasion. Life happens, traffic happens, etc. I realize that. I’m specifically thinking of those people we all know who have that reputation for being late to everything. You know…those friends you have to give the fake start time that’s half-an-hour earlier than everyone else so they’ll be on time?
Why are some people ALWAYS late? I don’t get it.
