Tardiness is Tacky. Although I truly believe politeness is promptness, you can call me impolite when it comes to being on time. Five to ten minutes late to just about anything. I guess it's better than twenty, right? Setting all clocks and watches five minutes fast, fail. Setting three alarms every morning, another fail. 11:29 pm on a Monday and here I am presenting to you my Monday Manners. Better go. I must start minding my manners.
