Are You Chronically Late? It’s Not Your (Our) Fault!

Hey, it’s the day and age of blaming something besides ourselves for our shortcomings. So I offer you today an excuse. An excuse for why you are always late for things!

A study at San Fransisco State University found that 17% of us are late on a regular basis. Now, here’s the term for people who share this “condition:” Lateness Addiction. Go ahead, use that on your boss…I dare ya!

Psychologists who analyzed this study say people who are late all the time share similar other traits: Procrastinating, trouble with self-control and a hard time focusing. Hmmmmm…suddenly I feel like I’m looking in the mirror :-/

Researchers said people who are chronically late may not be able to help it because it’s a trait that’s ingrained in their personality.

I rest my case.
