I have a good work. I got paid well even it is far beyond hopes compared to the amount of money they got in some other companies. I have a good behavior being worked on time. I sometime get up too early to go to work, because I loved my job. I do quite a few time coming late to work. I just feel guilty to not being at my job in time, then I saw people keep looking at me and that made me panting and going blue. If you late, will you say sorry and do you that intentionally ? Do you feel ashamed when you coming late to work?

Hi thezone, Swings and roundabouts. Yeah, I know but I am just worried with rules. In my place of work, we are awarded with warning letters maximally if did coming late 3 time consecutively. Moreover, I am paid and just lower class worker. Thank you to join on my discussion and keep lotting.

Can I ask what field you work in? My position is crazy, we can work between 5 and 12 hours a day, we never know until we go in. So they don't really worry if you are a little late as it balances out.

Yes, I am working as front officer at one villa here. I usually start to work at 8 until 16 in the afternoon. You have to work for 12 hours a day, it's nearly one day full. Anyway, are they paid overtime ?

It is good to go to your work before time. Just because we go early on a few days, we cannot go delayedly on a few days. If others look at you do not mind. Say sorry to your immediate boss. While working I never use to go delayedly for work. I also use to enjoy whatever I do just as am enjoying now posting in mylot.

well for me it depend on the place and workmate where i work. if we work at place where the jobs not really that busy snd even the boss getting late so many times, i guess we dont need to ashamed so much. if we work at place where there is alot of work to do right from the moment the office start and our workmate and even our boss always getting on time, we will fell so much shame if we late. but ofcourse i'll never intentionally try to getting late no matter where i work at because it not a good thing to do.

I don't care if my colleague always come late. I just wanted to be in time at my workplace. We are different from boss who come late from us as worker. Once in life, they might get angry instead of late. You are not aware that by coming late create bad images of ourselves in front of his eyes.

I hate to be late at work, It makes me feel ashamed, and next day I get up earlier, but you know what?, most of the time I get late to work, even thought I don't like, I like to do my job with efficiency and be on time. Right now I am not working because I moved of my country to USA. I never was fired to any job, because I always worked giving the best of me, but this problem was always on me. I want to get a job soon here, and I promise myself to be on time.

Being late at work is one of my weaknesses and i hate myself every time i go to work late. Though i didn't to do it every day but i feel ashame when everybody is already there and here i am, just came in. However, i have already tried to amend my tardiness these days because it's not really helpful at all. :(

I wish you could change your tardiness. So far I know that to change bad habits into good habits requires times and struggles, it usually take 30 days. Good luck

Hi friend.. I had an experience regarding same in my college time.. I used to go to college late for 10min almost daily. All of my friends used to say me come fast during my starting days of college. But afterward if i come early sometimes they used to be shocked.I will not feel guilty because my lecturers also used to come late to college.

It’s normal that people will stare at you, mainly because you are late for your schedule. Sometimes, being late is quite hard most especially that time is very important in putting a good impression of yourself to your working environment most especially, to your boss. Sometimes, if you go to work late without any valid reasons, then that is totally a not good start in your day. However, if you really have a valid reason on not coming to work early, then they will probably consider it. But regardless, apologizing to your superior and to your workmates does give a good notion that you feel sorry for being not on time and in the long run, they will probably understand.

I don't work at the office but I know how you feel. Whenever I go to school classes late, I feel so embarrassed that I'm late. I also hate it when people look at me like I'm irresponsible for being late.
