Why Being Late Is Hated By So Many People

Jul 25, 2008
This year to make someone's be late for something day that bit more amazing, try sending them a free e-card. Free e-cards come in all sorts of different categories and genres, so I'm positive there will be a free e-card to suit the person or people you want to send your free e-card to. Whether you want to send your free e-card to a pro footballer, dentist, or small child, I am positive there will be a suitable free e-card for them.

One of the best bits about free e-cards is they can be sent from nearly any where in the world, to nearly any where in the world. Whether you live in South Africa and want to send your free e-card to New York you can, and it would cost exactly the same as sending your free e-card to your next door neighbor.

Free e-card are so much more eco friendly than their paper card counterparts. Instead of having to chop down trees to make them, all you have to do is get a skilled I.T worker to make them on his computer. Then from there you personalize the free e-card with the message. So now more trees are being left standing and global warming, if it really is true, is been reduced.

I hate arriving late for anything, and I hate it even more if someone else is late and it effects something I am doing, or am about to do. So sending out free e-cards as a reminder to people to be on time is now becoming more and more popular. If I have a meeting, or a golf tee time with someone, they are sure to receive a free e-card reminder the day before.

Nearly everybody is guilty of having been late to something at one time or another.

If you are one of the few that have successfully escaped the clutches of procrastination, we trust that you are familiar with the basic symptoms: an inability to define punctuality or, in pathological cases, denial of the entire time concept, the speed with which one is flustered by impending deadlines and the curious intensity of refusal to begin and/or finish work.

The Procrastinators' Club of America, which believe it or not is a legitimate organization of more than 4,000 members, is committed to celebrating that way of life and thus sponsors the annual observance of Be Late for Something Day.

Given that this holiday is expected to be controversial among employers and fastidious employees alike, people willing to take the risk are urged to "be late for work on purpose, and leave early to make up for it" by the president of the Procrastinators' Club of America.

An issue that remains unclear is whether skipping a scheduled event entirely would qualify as an adequate way of commemorating the day or an act of someone who completely misunderstands the meaning of the holiday.

Millions of free e-cards are sent each year, I send loads also. I believe free e-cards have made my life so much easier, and have also saved me a lot of money.
