Punctuality is a good habit.It means that people do things at the arranged time. You will win others' trust.No punctuality is a bad habit.It is not serious if you are several minutes late,but it may cause a bad result.When you are not punctual for many times.you will become lazier and lazier.even fail in the life.We should try to be punctual forever

yes intellegent people are always puntual..saying that I married a Filipino and have lived in the Philippines and also i have lived in Japan..and know that in the Philippines their is real time and Philippine time..if you have a 12 noon appointment and your guest arrive at 1 or even 2 hours late..the Filipinos that they are on time..as this is Philippine time. Once in the USA I had a dinner party and served food at noon..and when the Philippine quest arrive..they were surprised we ate already as they were only an hour late..duh? they even had the gall to tell me they sopped at Burger King to eat as they were so hungry that they did not know when we were going to eat..but the invitation was stated noon..sharp..so they said they would take some food home with them..i said this is still a party going on and it would not be right to "take food home" as people are still eating ..so there is a difference i culture.. i have been to Manila and know of the traffic..so i leave ahead of time to compensate for th delays that i know will happen..in Chicago, New York, LA or evn our Capitol there must be allowances for conditions of weather and traffic.. but most educated people arrive ON TIME...thank you for the great post..my wife has gotten a lot better as she lost job working for a Japanees Auto Company as she was late too much and missed worked due to silly reason..Work is work..time is money..the world does not revolve arouond you.
