Being on Time

Being on time is important. Be on time when you are invited to someone’s home for a meal. Do not arrive early. Your hosts will be busy getting their house clean. They also will be preparing the food. If you are going to be late, call the people who invited you. It is polite to let your hosts know you will be late. 

Being on time is important. When you go to a movie you should arrive before the movie starts. You may want to be at the movie theater ten minutes early. You will then have time to get your ticket and find a seat. You should also be at least ten minutes early for weddings and funerals. 

Being on time is important. You should arrive five to ten minutes early for meetings and appointments. Arrive five to ten minutes early for job interviews. Arrive five to ten minutes early for school conferences and doctor appointments. Arriving early shows you value, or care about, the meeting. It shows you respect the time of others. If you are late for an interview or appointment, your meeting may be cancelled. 

Being on time is important. Some people set their clocks five minutes ahead. People do this on clocks in their homes and cars. Some people set their wristwatches ten minutes ahead. Setting a clock ahead helps some people be on time.
