These guys nail this pretty well. Look, I’m not saying everyone does this, all of the time. Just most people, a lot of the time. As someone who prides themselves on being timeous, I’ve done it, I’m ashamed to say. The biggest problem with this adjust in our behaviour is that when someone (or you) is actually stuck in traffic, or at work, or whatever, no one believes you anymore. The generation that cried wolf, that’s what we are. So how about we just stop being flaky and be rad instead.
