Only bitches are late

I’m feeling a little uninspired to write anything lately, so I’m expanding quotes from my 46 in-your-face quotes with pretty pictures to wake your ass up in life post.

And lo and behold, today’s topic is about punctuality, in which sadly, a lot of people has it in their heads that it’s okay to be late. Like a little bitch.

This topic has already been written on about by Greg Savage’s How did it get to be ‘OK’ for people to be late for everything? Brilliantly written. Straight to the point.

So here’s my take.

If you’re an adult and if you’ve trouble showing up on time, you’re nothing but a bitch

For the life of me, I always made it a point to show up on time.

Why? Because, this may shock you… are you ready? Are you sure? Wait for it.

Because it’s fucking common sense. 

Not only that, it’s basic, human decency to simply be on time so the other party does not have to wait around needlessly.

Yet, for reasons unknown, many people, adults even cannot grasp this concept.

I’m not talking about being late for ten minutes. That’s okay. I’m talking being late for hours.

Again, being late is pathetic, especially when you’re an adult.

Excuses are not reasons

I’ve heard it all. “I overslept”, “The bus was late”, “I drank too much last night” or “I’m on the way (No I am not).”

These are excuses. They’re not reasons. They only appear as reasons to the latecomer as a weak form of justification.

And if you apply that in life (simply because How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything), you’ll know that a lot of us make up excuses all the time. But we try to make them up as reasons.

If you can’t be arsed show up on time, it means you’ve no respect for life

You do not respect the other party, that is why you expect others to believe your excuses.

You do not respect yourself, because you’re allowing others to see how flawed you are.

You do not respect time itself. That is why you’re disorganized and don’t do shit with your life.

That is how you end up being a bitch.

No, it’s not okay to be late

It’s only showing up on time. It’s that easy.

We’re all late from time to time. That is okay, especially after you apologize and make amends.

It is not okay to be labelled that guy who never shows up on time.

Your friends are waiting. People have better things to do than wait for you. Meetings are not held just to wait for you in your honour.

Respect yourself already.

If you’ve been offended by this post, then you’ve proven me right. It’s not my fault you do not want to reflect on your life.

Do you want more honest-as-fuck stories like this?
