Do you think you are a punctual person?
I am very punctual. I have a high demand to myself on this matter. I can say that I didn’t get late for more than 5 times through these years.
Do you mind if someone is late?
I do not want others to be late in the workplace. To me, if someone is late, it means he or she didn’t take our appointment seriously. But if my friend is late for a while when we plan to go out or so, I think it’s alright. But in general, being late too much is offensive.
What excuses do people usually make when they are late?
I think most people are not meant to be late. They always get late due to some emergencies, like being stuck in a traffic jam, or forget something and had to go back and fetch it.
Do you think it’s important to be punctual?
Yes, of course. Being punctual shows one’s respect to others, and makes people’s life more efficiently. Actually I think it's a basic virtue. However, there are many people who pay little attention to this matter.
