Panctuality is a Good thing, personally when there is an important meeting i am punctual, when not, it depends on the mood and on the person i am gonna meet.

and we dont forget accidents, hahaha specially when it is your first meeting with somebody you like, potential lover oppsi

We all know what traffic is like here, so that can be planned for. Accidents, same thing, but somewhat excusable. If a person is sometimes late because of special circumstances, the person can call and inform those waiting. Those who are habitually late, are just rude and have, obviously, very little sense of responsibility and are most probably rather selfish.

As shaw once said - "Better never than late"

As per the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) he said:

"The signs of a hypocrite are three:

1. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie.

2. Whenever he promises, he always breaks it (his promise ).

3. If you trust him, he proves to be dishonest. (If you keep something as a trust with him, he will not return it.)"

So being punctual is something that all should be. For me i am always punctual unless there are things that are out of my hand and cannot control which causes me to be late.

It could be concluded that we should carry on following our own instincts as per our traits ..

Worms reach too early , birds on time, mice after everybody is in and owls when it is time for tea /coffee / biscuit break ..

So .. where has one to draw the line ..

By GodFather.• 9 years 9 months ago.

MM but its always the Night owl late at night that catches the mouse..:)

By Molten Metal• 9 years 9 months ago.
Molten Metal

When they say 'early bird catches the worm' ..

in that case the punctual 'worm' who came out a little earlier than other worms had to pay with 'her' life ..

So at times punctuality could be dangerous as well ..

dawood khan said not punctual always late coming and early going back to home"

Unforseeable circumstances by their very definition are the ones which are not able to be foreseen or known beforehand. Say for example a fire enroute or a flash strike or an accident causing trafiic jam/ diversion etc etc...how could someone forsee such incidents and factor them into the time beforehand.

By mohdata• 9 years 9 months ago.
mohdata

lol cover to cover are you conveying how bored you were back then?..and don't bother checking; the latest marhaba will say the same..because the latest Qatar is still the same..laid back, chilled out and sleepy as a sloth..anyways..let's not hijack the thread..they'll punctually shoot us down for the offence:-)

By GodFather.• 9 years 9 months ago.
GodFather.

Progress always comes late..:)

By nomerci• 9 years 9 months ago.

MM, excuses, nothing more than that.

Sure, there may be unforseable circumstances, but that can be considered beforehand. Everybody CAN be punctual, IF they WANT to.

By Molten Metal• 9 years 9 months ago.
Molten Metal

not always .. it is complicated ..

By anonymous• 9 years 9 months ago.

mohdata yes, it was there in Marhaba when I first came to Qatar a few years back. Read it cover to cover during my first weekend here. I wonder if its still there, will go through the latest copy to check.

By nomerci• 9 years 9 months ago.
nomerci

Late equals losers.

As simple as that.

By fea_sad• 9 years 9 months ago.

i don't agree with what is mentioned in the picture, coz punctuality is a reflection of personality, some excuses can be accepted, but being punctual is part of being organized in ur life

By the monk• 9 years 9 months ago.

OUR MANAGER USED TO BE LATE ALWAYS, BUT HE TELLS EVERYONE TO BE ON TIME. NONE FOLLOWED HIM. ALL OF A SUDDEN, HE CHANGED AND STARTED COMING ON TIME EVERYDAY AND DO THE OTHER STAFF. BE PUNTUAL AND OTHERS WILL BE PUCTUAL.

Am very punctual but start learning how to not b punctual as no one respects time. but i do know many people respect time and b more than punctual and comes before time with half to one hour early when they have an interview lol. so i think punctuality depends on many facts.

By IlikeQL• 9 years 9 months ago.

Seriously I do do try hard to be on time, specially after a good telling off I got from a former boss of how a good Muslim would be one who is punctual. But somehow something happens, we underestimate the traffic or over estimate our ability to reach a place faster, and we end up reaching our appointments and destinations later than we imagined. :(

It is offensive to ask Indians this question
