If Your Early, Your On Time, If Your On Time, Your Late……

Dear Mayor De Blasio

About a dozen years ago, MTV was airing a reality show where young men were pledging a fraternity. One of the senior members of the fraternity issued the following warning to the recruits: if you are early, you are on time. If you are on time, you are late. If you are late, don’t bother showing up at all.

We are all late once in a while. Alarms don’t go off, meetings go over the allotted time, there is traffic, etc. That’s life.  But constant lateness, I believe, is a sign of a lack of respect.

If an employee is constantly late to their job, it is likely that their job will soon go to someone else.

So why is it, that you, Mr. Mayor that you have been significantly late to several events since you took office? I’m at least one of your people carries a watch or at least consults their phone for the time every now and then.

If constant lateness is a sign of how you treat the city of New York and it’s citizens who elected you to your current position, then maybe they will be late come the next election?  Or they may just vote for a mayor who arrives on time.
