And now, for my article on Punctuality: Is It Necessary, Or Overrated?
I think life is hard enough without having people expect you to share your time, and then not being punctual. That especially goes for doctors and other professionals whose lives are scheduled and then patents/clients suffer the consequences of their poor time management by having to wait. My time is as valuable as anyone else’s and I expect common courtesy, including keeping your appointments.
A lot of people are laid back and don’t like schedules, and that’s fine. But whether you tend to be laid back or wound-up, you still have to realize that if you say you’re going to be somewhere at a particular time, it’s rude and obnoxious, not to mention a reflection of your integrity, to be late. I know that sounds harsh to some people and all I can say to them is, if you don’t want people to be insulted by your actions, then show them respect and maintain your integrity.
In the movies and TV shows, any woman going on a date is late. That says a lot about what the public thinks of women. There are even songs written about women being late for dates. It’s a said commentary on us. No matter how hard I try to make this article balanced, and flowing, I can’t. Because there aren’t really excuses for disrespectful behavior. I understand emergencies. Sometimes things happen. So call and let the person who’s waiting for you know you will be late, or can’t show.
I mean, really, folks. It’s not that hard.
I hope everyone takes the time to stop by the following blogs to read more about Punctuality.
