You must read this article without hesitation or you’ll miss the opportunity to revel in rudeness. September 5 is Be Late for Something Day.
For those of you who’ve 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.
You can always count on that one person, in every group, to be late. Singles, once always on time, become perpetually late when partnered, quick to point the accusatory finger at one another. “He wouldn’t 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, preferably to an event planned by the inconsiderate latecomer. Since it goes without saying that they’ll 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 this weekend’s 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 who delayed reading this until after September 5 makes their participation that much easier.
