Random Thoughts by Pauline

Which type of people do you belong to - the always punctual type or the type who is late for all appointments?

It is not easy being punctual. You are either early or late. You are able to arrive on the dot because you are early to make sure you are punctual. I belong to this type. I can still remember how 11 years ago I was one hour early for an interview in Sheng Wan to make sure I would be punctual. Of course, I did not barge in the interview room an hour early. I had coffee in a nearby cafe for one whole hour.

On the other hand, there are people who are always late. They are so late that you begin to think you are waiting at the wrong place or you have got the time wrong. When they do arrive, they have all kinds of seemingly good reasons. But if they are habitually late, you can only choose to either tolerate  or never to meet them again.  Once you have got used to allowing them, they start to take you for granted. You become so numb that you bring a book with you to kill time. These days, you are lucky. You have Candy Crush to keep you amused or frustrated depending on whether you can clear the level.
