5. Be on time. If you don't like people wasting your time don't waste theirs

I can be sure nobody likes their time being wasted. I'm one of those who doesn't like tardiness but as much as I don't like being kept waiting I find it important not to keep others waiting as well. Speaking as one well acquainted with African time I know all about people being late. However in these days of mobile phones it is at the very least polite to say when you'll be late.


  1. I sooooo agree. It's a sign that they think that your time is not important

  2. Oops. :) I am late, a lot... but it's not that I don't value people's time... I don't mind waiting that much, either... but I'll keep this in mind!

  3. God knows I have every intention of working on this one...sigh. Good lessons. Will check out the rest.
