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?
Most people have not heard of that. Including myself. It's a nice comment though.
This is so true. Punctuality means respect. I am always punctual due to the respect of others. The world doesn't revolve around "One Person's schedule". That is why we have clocks and certain times for appointments, work, school. etc. Personally I feel what someone is saying when they are continually late is MY time is worth more than YOURS. GREAT QUESTION!!
Agreed. But being devil's advocate, what happened to " You're not late until you get there."
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!
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
This is true. Whenever I schedule events with friends, I'm always the first one there. They usually come late.

Christians, If you sin and die 5 minutes later do you go to hell?So if you don't have time to ask for your forgiveness do you go to hell? Can your God forgive you and accept you into heaven even if you didn't get a chance to ask for him to forgive?

What 5 things will you pack, if you have only 5 minutes to leave your home?I had faced this situation, when there was an earthquake in Gujarat in 2001. I took some cash, bank cheque book, medicines pouch, mobile phone, biscuits.

A form of this question came up in a recent thread. I responded that I can and have written more than 10 hubs or articles in one day. I just finished a hub, and it took me 19 minutes to write it. It's 800 words long. Many of the articles I write for publishers are only 500 words long. So, you see,...
