The Time is the Time

Being from South Florida,  we have a common saying when someone is late.  We call it,  “Latin Time”.  I do not  like this saying at all.  We teach our children bad manners when we make it acceptable to be late.  This shows poor considerations to others and will flow into every part of a child’s life.  This includes being on time for class to a community meeting.

Etiquette Note: I give some flexibility when it comes to parties.  Being 15 minutes late is socially accepted, but not habitually late.
