For those of you who have been late to every scheduled event since the delayed moment of your birth, this will be a day like any other. However, those of you who are hopelessly punctual can turn the tables without guilt. Today is Be Late For Something Day, observed annually on September 5.
You can always count on that one person, in every group, to be late. Singles become perpetually late when partnered, quick to point the accusatory finger at one another. “He would not stop to ask for directions” or “She kept changing outfits” are common excuses.
This is the day for punctual people to retaliate. You are obligated to be tardy, especially if you’ll be attending an event that’s going to be hosted by the inconsiderate latecomer. And since it goes without saying that he or she will be late, be sure that you are extremely late.
Today also offers the perfect excuse to miss a good portion of a dreaded event. So since you’d rather not listen to obnoxious blabber at the family reunion, make a conscious decision to be like the hare in “Alice in Wonderland” and be late, be late, be late for that so-called important date.
Now that you have perused this informative read on time, plan ahead for your contribution to Be Late for Something Day. Those of you who’ve delayed reading this until after September 5, make your participation that much easier.
