-- William James

Now, you start worrying that you may

          Being late tells a teacher (or a boss) that you are flaky and undisciplined. 

These are not traits you want to have attached to you.  If you aren’t flaky or

undisciplined, then being late says that you are self-centered and must think

diligent, reliable and hard-working.  THAT is the message you want to put out
