I just want to say I’m happy we are generally punctual in the US
It’s a great attribute to have. It is something that sets Americans apart and over achieve.

Japanese Trains make German Trains jealous as to punctuality.

Yeah, but letting Germans put people on trains is a little risky.

I’m working with people in a country that sees the concept of time as flexible. Everything is 3/4 hours late and they get pissy when we complain about it.

Someone turned in work two days late recently and their entire management team stood up for the guy saying it was acceptable.

The thing is, all they have to do is click a button.

Try being in the military. If you're not 15 minutes early, you're late.

I’d rather be 10-15 minutes early and wait for someone than have someone wait on me. One of the best habits my dad taught me.

Rarely happens with my wife in tow, though. She’ll sit and calculate how long it’ll take to get ready and get somewhere rather than just getting ready. Obviously, she wasn’t very good at the math.

every day of my life.

She would never condsider just being ready and waiting for time to leave.

We can have 8 empty hours prior and she is having to change purses and put on mascara on the way I’ve learned to shut up and drive

Brazil? I did a semester there... almost had a heart attack the first day of class because even the professor was 15-20 minutes late!
