What is a good excuse for being late?
It can be late to work, school, a funneral, a date, anything. I just want to know your excuses. I am using this as comparative research for a future Hub.
When I drove I used to use traffic all the time. Now that I don't drive and ride the bus, I just say I missed my bus and had to walk. It doesn't happen often, and usually i'm something stupid like 45 minutes early due to my bus.
Do your best to go on time then if you are late tell frankly the real reason is the best excuse.
I always reach my class in time but if I am late in a date only then I show the excuse. I tell about the traffic.
i was late today because my watch stop working... It didn't alarmed me so i wake up so late....
I always blame public transit, but a realy good excuse would be if you helped a person in need while on your way to work/school. Helping out other people should be more important than being always on time!

When I am late, I try not to make excuses. I am just honest. Of course, sometimes it's just "I overslept" or "I got lost on the way here". Those are embarrassing. Forcing myself to semi-embarrass myself because I am late, I automatically teach myself a lesson and will keep that in mind for the next time - and be on time instead.
I think hazardous driving conditions like hurricanes and heavy smoke SHOULD be a good reason. I did have to attend class despite a hurricane. Afterall, class was cancelled for 2 previous hurricanes. Like having more of them makes it less hazardous? I also had to turn around because I was trapped on a road that was closed due to smoke. I didn't make it to work at all and did get jokes about it. But, I don't think a person should have to risk their life to beat a time clock or have perfect attendance/
Just tell the truth and don't use and excuse. My commute time is so variable that the traffic is the usual reason...

What I really, really, hated, upon being told no, I could not do something, was to get a reply of "Just because" or "Because I said so!"Man, that really galled me! I thought I deserved to know the reason behind the decision--safety? money issues? age? I would...
