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. 

Cell Phones Replacing Alarm Clocks

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.


  1. I hear ya. I have some friends who are ALWAYS late -- drives me crazy. I might have to resort to telling them they need to show up half an hour before they really need to!!
