What happened to "If you don't arrive 5 minutes early, then you are late"?


Am I the only one that has noticed a decrease in the art of punctuality? I am always the first person to an event and that's simply by being there "5 minutes early"... I seem to be the exception to the rule nowadays. Any else experienced this?

    Frustrating, isn't it?

    Let me define "late":

    Adjective: Doing something or taking place after the expected, proper, or usual time: "his late arrival".

    Adverb: After the expected, proper, or usual time.

    e.g. After 5pm, whether you have "got there" or not, you are LATE!
