Punctually Challenged & Always Late? Never Be Late Again.

Updated on July 5, 2011

Thoughts on Punctuality

I think we all know or love someone who is chronically late. It can be really frustrating when you feel like you can't count on that person to show up when needed. People who are always late really make the people around them feel like they are not being treated fairly and often become quite upset with the behavior. But often the punctually challenged doesn't do it on purpose. They often have every intention to make it to work or school on time but find that they just can't. Often it is caused by lack of organization and lack of planning ahead.

On the other hand some people think it is perfectly fine to be fashionably late. They often say "I am always late". They don't see the behavior as disrespectful to the person who is expecting them. They just expect every one else to deal with their chronic lateness. The problem that often arrives is that this person who is always late will often find that the business world will not make exceptions and will employers will quickly tire of this punctuality problem.

American Innovative Neverlate Executive Alarm Clock

Neverlate alarm

The Neverlate Alarm Clock is the perfect gift for the heavy sleeper or for those who simply have a difficult time getting up in the morning. This amazing clock radio actually has two different 7 day banks for two different 7 day schedules. So you can customize it for two people. There is a snooz alarm. The Neverlate Alarm Clock also has a rotary dial so there is no confusion with push button alarm setting.You can adjust the light as well as the alarm sounds.My favorite feature is the snooze alarm. Each time the button is hit the snooze time is cut in half.Another cool feature is you can program how you want to wake up on which day of the week. For example you may want an alarm sound on one day and your favorite rock music on another day. This is a unique feature that only the American Innovative Neverlate Executive Alarm Clock has.
