    How much do you think lateness matters?

    I used to be always be late to school until about year 11, when I started being on time practically every day. I don't know how much of a difference it made it terms of school but I'm glad I got into the habit of good timekeeping for going to college and work.


    Primary school - Never late. Lived in the same area as the school.
    Secondary school (private) - Nearly every day and got many detentions from it. The traffic to and from Central London is the pits of hell.
    Secondary school (state) - Only a few times and that was when I went by bus. By tube, I always left a lot of time to get to school and had alternative routes handy when delays happen.

    I'm always on time. Even if my train is running late as long as it's by less than 20 minutes then I'm good.

    Although the day of my first chemistry class the trains were cancelled due to signalling faults at the station I get on at. Was so annoyed. I managed to make it in for the afternoon though, which was with the same lecturer, and I managed to talk to him about the morning class before everyone else showed up.*
