There is a quote says, "Better late than never." Sometimes I think it is right. However, sometimes I feel like, better don't go to the class if I am late. It is because I hate for being late. Which one do you prefer? And you are what kind of student?

You need to go to your class whether if you are late or not. It's a shame that you are late but at least you go to your class. I always go to our class early so if i forgot assignment I have time to make it.

Sometimes, due to unforeseen circumstances, for example, a car accident causing a major traffic jam, we are late for school or work. That should be understandable. However, that shouldn't deter us from going to where we should be going. For me, I would just go ahead to class or work, and then offer my explanations. By skipping class or work because of lateness is not going to do us any good.

Thanks for your response. If there is someone who can understand you, it is great. But some of my lecturers don't want to hear my explanation. Whatever I said he just says "It's not my problem". So what should I do?

i think The One of a Quote said That "better Late than never". it's depend On the situation Of the peoPle to Commit and AppLy that Quote... for example : as u know that the Human is the social creature that much need The heLp Of the Other around Them.that meant the Human is The Weak Creature and then Human always Make the Mistakes. The Humans are not infallible either intentionally or not. when people feel mistakes or sins. they will stop and have a desires to get correct Their Previous mistakes or sins that they have done. then "better late" must be done Than never. it means that what i said to depend on the situation.

It is not good being the late comer but it is good if not being absent. By the way, this lately I become a late comer. I wish I can change this attitude.

I was always the kind of student that was punctual for everything. To class, turning in my assignments. I fell into a habit of getting everything done as soon as possible right away and stuck with it. Others did not and you could pretty much pick those people out of the crowd. If they showed up at all during class, it was a victory of sorts for them. Still better late than never is something that I do agree with. Better to do something than nothing at all after all. At least if something is done, then you have done more than all of those people who have done nothing. So better to show up at the last minute, instead of not showing up at all. I always tried to show up on time, but being late beats not showing up at all every time.

I like your opinion. Before this I am kind of punctual student. But lately I always late for class. Then I chose not to go to the class because I hate being in center of attraction situation. However, in terms of assignment, no doubt I will submit it on time. If not, my lecturers would minus my marks.

When I was schooling, the prefects will write my name and give it to the principal. And for me, I chose not to go to school just to take care of my image. Haha...

I think its better late than never. My teachers in college checked our attendance later on before we say good bye. So its okay for me to be late since the teacher can still check my attendance. And if I missed the lesson then I can just borrow my classmates notes.

Yes. My lecturers also checked the attendance. But if I late, they will locked the door. So I cannot enter the class. Poor me. However there are also lecturers who will say nothing.

Yes. I agree with your topic. Even though we are late, but we still come. We have our inner strength to go to the class rather than just sleep at home. :)

Before this I have inner strength to go to the class. But since my lecturers was locked the door. My inner strength is gone. So I prefer just continue sleeping because I know I would not enter the class.

I'm saying "Better late than never" more than only on school. If you are late lots of people stare, but well doesn't really matter since you get used to it. You could always just go home, but if it occurs morely I think it's just be late.

Persistently becoming late in activities is not at all a desirable trend. But in many instances it is better to be late than never.
