I’m late, I’m late for a very important date.No time to say hello, good-bye, I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.
Every time I go to China, I feel like this Alice in Wonderland song.
For some reason, the Chinese take “fashionably late” to a whole new level. I think I’ve begun to understand that 8:00 really means 8:30, always. I don’t know why. It just is.
But, to me, a guy who believes punctuality is just being courteous, this drives me nuts. I just wanted to get that off my chest. I’m better now.
