Yes! Hasn't everyone? If you haven't then you don't have a life. I've been so late for work that I've called in for the day and said I was sick. I've been so late for school that I have had a friend of mine sign the role for me. It got so bad for school that I decided to take nothing but online classes. I've always been so busy that I've even late for doctor appointments.

Late for something? - Time can be set for many things
Yes I have been late for work a couple of times in my life time. On those days I felt like I was behind all day long and couldn't get caught up. Boy was I glad when the day was up so I could start all over the next day on the right time.

I am a late person. I always tend to get late . It was so when i was at school and i used to get punished for that. i USed to be punished and i still remember my principal who used to squeeze my earlobe and call me a " pain in the neck".. I feel ashamed of it now... Also when i worked at a school it used to become late because i had to commute by two buses to the school. So i used to be late once in a week. Now since i work from home i dont have this problem...

Yes, i am always late in my work usually 15-30minutes at the start of my time. My work time start at 7am and i usually got in the office at 7:30am, probably because of the traffic on my way to the office,.

Hi, I don't work outside the home anymore, but I used to work at an insurance agency. Worked there for almost 16 years. Come to think about it, don't know how I got away with it all the years. Anyway....yeah I was always late. I had a young son when I worked there and I could never seem to get going in the morning. It was either him or me that was running late. I would always be 5-10 min. late no matter what I did. I did get talked to every once in awhile and I'd really try harder and manage to get there on time for a little while, then I was back at it. I think I was a procratinator and didn't like to go to work. LOL I'm much happier now. I've always been a late night person anyway. My hubby is on the night shift and I go along with his schedule, so I stay up late at night and get up in the afternoon now. It sure works for me :-) Have a great day! Char :-)

These days, more people are sacking the bosses to work-at-home, for the simple reasons that you are initiating the question of "late for work". With the escalating of gas, cost of driving your own car or public transport that takes a chuck from your salary. Not to mention, helping your boss to make more money while you are earning a fix income, doesn't have the time for your family and freedom to advance in life. The bottom-line is be your own boss because you will control the time and not the time controls you.

yeah it happened recently when i was going for job interview, the lady told me wrong address and i was just looking and looking for the place and did not find, so i called the company and took the correct direction and reached 15 minute late. Things to happen if you don't plan it correctly but it is life and it happened all over.

LOL...I think I was born to be late. I can only count few occasions that I have been early or on designated time. I hate this attitude of mine but it just can't be helped. I get lazy when it's still early and lazier when I'm already late. I'm late in classes and I just live 10-15 minutes away from school, I'm late on dates and our small town is just 10 minutes away from our house, I'm late in sunday Masses, late in parties, late in meetings, OMG when have I ever been early???...LOL
