There’s hardly a worse start of a day than waking up after a good and restful sleep, taking a glance at the watch and realizing that you’re going to be late to work again. You start scrambling, hastling, frantically throwing things into your bag, rushing around the house and thinking of leaving the house as soon as possible. Being no properly focused, you forget your car keys or cell phone, that’s why you’re forced to be back home right after leaving it. This goes on and on, your day starts terribly and the whole week goes on in quite a great deal of stresses. Unless a practice of being always late is not something absolutely usual for you.

Specialists analyzed the schedules and routine of more than 8,000 officials and came to the conclusion that 20 per cent of them arrive to the offices late at least once a week, and as much as 12 per cent is reported to be late at least twice a week. At that, traffic problems is named as the most common reason for being late, according to the office workers. 33 per cent blame traffic for their being late, when 24 per cent complain about their lack of sleep and 10 per cent of people blame their children in their being late to work.

    Those reasons are pretty funny, I am always late for sixth form no matter what time I get out of bed and I always come up with an excuse, but I have never thought of these excuses!
