Well actually I used to be late on many occasions, I was not a punctual person. So here I would like to share one of those experiences.
Remember when I was in junior high, the school was near where I lived. It was 20 minutes’ walk, but I was always late for school. We started class at 7:30 every morning. One day, I couldn’t find the shirt I wanted to wear, so I spent like the whole morning looking for it. It turned out that I was 30 minutes late. I was an idiot I know. My teacher was super angry and she asked me to stand in the corridor for one hour and let me in to have class, but I could not sit. So I stood for another two hours. I was exhausted and wanted to cry.
My classmates laughed at me, giving me nicknames like lazy head, Miss late, things like that. So I was mentally and physically hurt that time.
So I learned my lesson. And I set an alarm clock every day. I got everything ready in advance, making sure that I would be on time. Later, my teacher and classmates changed their view about me. But that experience of being late is really unforgettable.
