So Late, It’s Scary

So there I was, sitting on the couch watching a game show… and I thought, “Gee, I haven’t written a Ping today.” Sorry!

By far, one of the most annoying things is being late getting somewhere. Work and school are probably the best examples, although once you’re in college, things start to ease off a bit. (“Twenty minutes late? It’s all right! I just missed a test!”)

Has being late ever caused you real embarrassment?

How about being late paying a bill? When I moved into my home, the condo people never billed me for the quarterly fees and I completely forgot. Three months later I got a letter and I was mortified! (Plus I was madder than a hatter that they had not contacted me earlier than...three months!!!!!)

I am over it :o). And glad you are ok...we worry when the Ping is late.

Heh... Robert's one of the most punctual people I know... I can forgive traffic on 95. :)

I would have just assumed that you were late due to spending so much time shipping the free pens, brush picks, ink cartridges, progeria pictures etc...

What is really embarressing is when its you that has the keys to the door and when you finally arrive, all your employees are outside (waiting on you) to open the door so that they can get to work.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
