Top reasons of why people are late to work
When we were young, we heard the excuse of "my dog ate my homework". People who are late would try to give you stories like:
There was traffic even though I live ten minutes away. .
My alarm didn’t go off.
My kid was sick.
My car broke down.
I got locked out of my apartment when I took out the garbage.
My cell phone died and I couldn’t call in.
I was as sick as a dog.
I woke up and thought it was Sunday.
I didn’t go to bed till this morning.
We can go on and on with this but how much of that was true?
People who are chronically late can always come up with excuses. In their mind, they can justify the reasons that they are late. That way, they won’t feel guilty. Does it make it right? That is an individual’s determination. Most of the people who are chronically late because they are doing it unconsciously. They might have something more than just a bad habit. Perhaps they are unhappy with their jobs. Until they find out the cause of it, they will never change.
