The trouble with being punctual is that nobody’s there to appreciate it.
– Franklin P. Jones
I’m a big fan of the concept of Lombardi time. If something starts at 8pm, then be there at least 10 minutes before and don’t arrive at 8pm this is not the cinema where you have at least 20 minutes of preamble.
I want to start a new trend: where being fashionably late is no longer fashionable. Why this particular ‘fashion’ has persisted for so long is a mystery to me. I think that people should strive to be politely prompt instead. Surely things will run so much more smoothly that way.
