    Listening to the Benjy saga this morning I started to think about some of the people who I've dealt with over the years who are chronically late. What do you think is the reason/motivation?

    They wish to be the center of attention, just for a minute or so, even if it's negative attention.

    You know, like contrarians!

    My sister is notorious for always being late for everything.
    Sunday we had dinner at Mom's house. Sis said she would be there at 5:00. I said; "So, that means 6:30?" Sure enough, she walked through the door at 6:25.
    It's really very aggravating. It's got to be even worse for her husband, who's always early for everything.

    I think it's a passive aggressive thing, it's a way to fuck with someone, without actually fucking with them

    You could be right, she's done it ever since she was a little. She would miss the school bus at least twice a week. My mother would scream her brains out, but it wouldn't make her move any faster.

    Where I work it's a great way to eventually have the email sent out which ends with "....and we wish them well in their future endeavors."

    That shit needs to be nipped in the bud. If someone is consistently late, then catered to once they finally do show up, then they'll never stop. Late for a dinner? Then you don't eat. Late to go somewhere? Fucking leave without them.

    I have an employee who's chronically late. I just moved her start time to 7:10.
    She went apeshit, said she's never late.... I went into the labor tool and showed her the pattern of her arrivals. She shut up and is now on time.

    If someone is consistently setting exact times, then catered to them once they expect u to show up on time always. then theyl never stop with that 'time' nonsense
