6 Timely tips from furry friends

"Punctuality is the virtue of the bored."

— Evelyn Waugh


"If I promise you I'll show up 15 minutes late, I'll always arrive on time."

— Jarod Kintz, It Occurred to Me


“I am invariably late for appointments. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing."

— Marilyn Monroe

“People say I’m not punctual. That’s absurd, because I’m early. It’s my fame and wealth that are late. Once they get here, nobody will care what time I show up—just so long as I show up.”

— Jarod Kintz, The Merits of Marthaism


“I figured this was the easy stuff, and if we couldn't show up on time, looking right and acting right, we weren't going to be able to do anything else.”

“Even if I didn’t have to deal with traffic and could teleport, I’d still be late all the time. The only difference is my excuses would have to be more efficient.”
