As Time Goes By... Dan Blaine DBLIVIT I think the hardships we all had commuting via bus, ferry and subway ingrained in us a sense of punctuality! We knew if we didn't make that 7:10 boat, we were gonna be over a 1/2 hour late and miss the other connections, too.

Through the years since I've left SI, I've never met anybody as punctual as SI'ders! Most of the people I work with don't think it's a big deal if they are 5 or 10 minutes late...they never had to worry about missing the boat!

BTW: I wonder if that's where the expression: "He (you, they, I) missed the boat" came from?
