Timeliness!

Happy Friday!  And, as our week comes to a close, here is a little humor to vault you through the day and into the weekend. While punctuality has been defined as “the characteristic of being able to complete a required task or fulfill an obligation before or at a previously designated time,” my copy of The Cynic’s Dictionary offers a different take on this quality.  Enjoy!

“The virtue of the bored.”  (Evelyn Waugh)

“The art of arriving for an appointment just in time to be indignant at the lateness of other people.” (Herbert Prochnow)

“If you’re there before it’s over.”  (James J. Walker)

“Something that, if you have it, nobody is ever around to appreciate it.”  (Hylda Baker)
