your work cool with it?
Mine seems to be. I've overslept 5 times in 5 months and no-one seems bothered.
no-one else understands what I do, and the overrall manager has singled me out for praise.
if you want the company like?
unless there's some specific reason for you needing to be in at 9 on the dot.
I also plan on leaving at 4 today, using the company car to run some personal errands.
But I just hate being late myself, its unprofessional and it really shouldn't ever happen without a very good excuse.
what about going back to bed to give your girlfriend a hug after you've had a shower and she can't complain about you being stinky?
what about a 4 course breakfast?
If I am ever late it is because of the hugging my gf before I leave :)
as long as i am in 9 i can leave 7.5 hours laters
It's pretty depressing really.
I've been late at least once a week for the last year. I'm agency staff though, it's important for me to keep up the lazier-than-thou stereotype.
ive been sleeping in loads lately and came in last tuesday completely off my face and had to go home at 12
i think im getting 'special treatment' though as they think ive finally lost my shit.
and I've been at least 5-10 mins late every other day this week.
So, in short they're pretty cool with it.
if i get up earlier, it just takes longer to do everything.
Morning people who say 'i would never be late, it's so unprofessional!' just don't get it. It's not a deliberate decision!
as long as i'm not more than 8 hours down at the end of the month, thats cool.....having said that i was once 20 hours down....and that seemed cool too. NO RULES.
would dock you half an hour pay if you arrived a second over the time you should have begun work. charming people.
but officially I'm supposed to always be in by ten. The time i arrive varies a lot - yesterday it was 9.15, but today i didn't get here until ten past ten. No one ever says anything if i get here after ten, and a couple of others on my team often arrive at half ten, but then they're much more senior than me. So i don't really know if it's okay for me to arrive after ten or not. I'm useless at getting ready in the mornings though
working the ol flexi too, I usually just start at 10 everyday, but I'm usually approx. 10 minutes late at least once a week. I think it's because I have absolutely no motivation to come in early and if I was to wake up early I'd just snooze until the last minute.
The only annoying thing about being late though is the frosty silence that develops from my supervisor.. I wish they'd just shout at me or something, the frosty silence has been known to last for a whole day, but if I'm in on time the next day all is forgotten!
I arrive first. No problem.
i'm expected to ring if i'm going to be later than 10.
on a warning now
