Being habitually late

Some people are habitually late because that's how they are, terrible at being punctualIt may be that the punctual people's assumption that the late ones can simply be on time if they decide to, which may be far-fetched.

Punctual people may believe that late people are passive-aggressive or arrogant and that their time is more valuable than those who wait for them. But reasons for lateness are generally more complex and may be linked to a lack of self-worth.
