No, you are not â€˜running lateâ€™, you are rude and selfish
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Fail
It does amaze me when people are consistently late in a BUSINESS context. Sure, traffic and kids and blah blah blah... but there's a pretty darn strong correlation between people who manage to make their meetings and being successful.
I knew things were out of control during my last startup when someone missed our weekly all-hands meeting -- held at 10:30AM on Wednesdays, not exactly a massive hardship to make it on time! -- with the excuse that he would not be attending because all his pants were in the dryer. When a grown adult professional thinks that MY PANTS ARE ALL IN THE DRYER is a legit excuse for missing work, you know that the concept of "rude and selfish" has died forever.
