How Much Are You Stealing???

There is nothing more annoying than someone who believes they are privileged enough to keep the rest of us waiting...

Are You A Thief? A Time Thief?

One minute, 60 seconds, is that so much to ask?
Yet, when you are always late by one minute you may end up stealing a lifetime from the people around you.
If you are late and they are waiting on you, now they are late as well.
One minutes is not much; however, if you are one minute late for work every day of the week you have stolen 5 minutes from your life and the lives of those waiting on you. That 5 minutes over the course of a year will end up being 4 1/2 hours. If you work at your job for 10 years and are only late by 1 minute everyday you will only steal 43 1/2 hours from your life as well as the lives of your employer and your co-workers who must wait on you to arrive. How would you feel if you were your boss?
If you are making others wait while you take your time to arrive you are stealing from their lives.

Wow, something I doubt many have ever thought about. One minute seems so little, but put this way, it can turn into a substantial part of our lives. Nice work.
