Hate Late? DOST's Juan Time Campaign

DOST's Juan Time campaign suddenly entered my mind as I, once again, found myself waiting in a booth at a corner cafe near the venue of an event I'm supposed to cover. 

Arriving at 5:45 p.m. for an activity that was scheduled (as the invitation states) at 6:00 p.m., I was sort of expecting to simply sign the registration form, be urshered in a small corner and patiently wait for the festivities to begin.  But alas!  It was not meant to be for I was "early" (as the people at the registration table said) and that actual show was moved to 6:30 p.m.!  Catch my drift?

Just chillin'

Apologies for such a negative rant at the start of the post but instances such as these make my blood boil.  I sometimes oftentimes find myself in situations where I have to wait for something to start or someone to arrive.  Don't these people know the meaning of punctuality?!

And this is exactly why I support DOST's Juan Time initiative.  Imagine finally synchronizing everyone's watches and clocks to only one time!  It's enough to make me cry (with joy that is!)  J

    I, myself, hate people who are not punctual and events that do not start on time.

  2. I know how you feel. I often arrive early in any meetings as I hate being the one to be late. It's not the synchronized time but I guess a change in our attitude. Filipino time should be defined as on-time and not late, he he he

    1. It is a culture thing. It has even done so far as being cited as the reason for their tardiness. Very bad!
