  • It's very rare that I'm late (maybe once or twice a year), other than scheduled appointments, which I tell my boss about ahead of time. I normally get to work about 20 minutes before 8, when the workday officially starts. I was a few minutes late last week because we had flooding and my normal 30-minute commute took an hour. I didn't call, because everyone knew how bad it was out there.

  • Never but I'm a SAHM so my day starts when my hubby wakes up. But I cannot stand to be late to anything! I always make sure to leave plenty of time to get where I need to go on time or a few minutes early.

  • Lol, I am usually either right on time or a few minutes late. They know it so I don't call, but I do stay over and make up the time.

  • When I worked in an office, I was almost always ontime during the weather months, but late during the winter. I only called if I was going to be more than 10 mins late.
