  Be Offensive About Lateness Raza!!
John White, Business Consultant, Australia, Member
  Raza - maybe it's time to offend them. This is the start of a memo I have used to publicly address the issue.
No, you are not ‘running late’ – you are rude and selfish. This may offend some of you, but only because it’s going to cut close to the bone for many.
And I don’t care if I sound old-fashioned, because actually it’s nothing to do with ‘fashion’ or ‘generation’. It’s got everything to do with basic good manners and respect for other people.
So here goes: how did it get to be “OK” for people to be late for everything? Because as far as I am concerned, it’s not OK.
In recent years it seems that a meeting set to start at 9am, for some people, means in the general vicinity of anytime which starts with the numeral ‘9’. Like 9.30, for example. People drift in at 9.10 or 9.20, or even later. And they smile warmly at the waiting group, as they unwrap their sandwich, apparently totally unconcerned that others have been there since five to nine, prepared and ready to start. .
