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!
Sorry petenali. Didn't mean to piss you off.
IDONO, I wasn't upset... only clarifying that just because you haven't arrived at an event, the people who have planned for the event to begin at a set time would consider you late once that set time has passed whether you have arrived or not. Peace
