It's a fluke. You've done everything in your power to be on time, and if that doesn't happen, well, your punctuality must not have been meant to be.

11. It's also not your fault if some little old lady with a cute dog walks past you on your way to the bus, and you just have to stop to compliment her pup.

12. All of your friends already know that they have to tell you to be somewhere a full two hours before they actually plan on meeting up.

Because then they know that you'll actually get there on time (hopefully). Hey, at least that way you avoid their major side eye and unnecessary comments.


14. You never get 100% of what your friends are saying because you always jump into the conversation late.

15. Only you know the true creative talent it takes to make up excuses for your tardiness.

Whether your friends actually believe it or not is another story...

16. After all, a little white lie never hurt anyone, right?

"I left on time... it's just that I was on the bus when a tree fell into the middle of the street because it was raining and lightning struck it. (By the way, the tree was *this* close to falling on the bus — I'm lucky I'm alive!) So anyway, I got off the bus and decided to walk the rest of the way, but the road was closed off! Can you believe that??"

19. And when you finally wake up early and arrive on time, you feel like you deserve an award.

A truly momentous occasion in the lives of tardy people everywhere.
