Be "culturally late" for a train in Switzerland or Germany -- let me know how that works out.

One fellow was always late so that meant the driver had to go illegally fast and we never got a chance to stop for coffee at a rest area .

Had enough of his bullshit and as I was the next day driver told him I was leaving at the exact time we all agreed upon, I would not wait a second longer for him (5.30 AM)

He was not there and I started to pull out, and he came around the comer at warp speed pulled into a parking spot and quickly ran for my car. He was never late again as the other two guys also said we would now always leave on time.

OP's source is 4 steps removed from the original source and things got a little lost in translation.

Here's the original posting:

https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9034


Here is the relevant section:



Yes, this is rather silly IMO. However, there is absolutely no mention of blacks, or even of race, just "culture."

Naturally, I was curious which cultures have this notion of time-- since none of the bloggers bothered to do that research, I did!

Turns out that it seems to be a Brazilian thing.

It also goes on to state that it's also customary to stay late as well.


Now, I fully agree that American norms should be honored by foreigners in most cases, especially if they are here long term. I mean, we're expected to study the customs of other cultures before traveling abroad, aren't we?

HOWEVER, the filtering through multiple blogs (grapevine effect) has created a false narrative that this is about blacks.
Good work. Thank you.

I've got friends and family, white as can be, that are always late. This problem isn't a "black" thing, a "Brazilian" thing, it's a rudeness thing.

One family within my circle..we tell them things start 1/2 hour before the real time...

Me? I am a "Hurry Up and Wait" guy...

This happens in other cultures too. My son has some good friends who are Native American. When they were younger he would visit friends on the reservation for video game parties. If his friend said be there at noon, he would be there at noon. The other natives would show up at 2. My son said only the white guys showed up on time. The Indians would all joke about it.

Self centered douche nozzles who don't give a damn about anyone else or wasting other people's time. My wife has a friend like that. A truly selfish Hebrew bitch who's always late. Meeting up with a group of her friends, she's always late, and I always tell everyone to go in and get seated and order, she arrives half way through dinner and tries to give us a Jewish guilt trip for not waiting.

You'd think blacks would be raising 10 kinds of hell about being held to a lower standard. That's REAL racism right there, this is what white liberals really think of black people.
Be on time or get your black *** out. NO CP TIME ALLOWED. I'm sick of this liberal BS.

There is a pattern: The world's most economically, technologically advanced and prosperous nations follow rules. Not only being on time, but meeting project schedules through diligence and unrelenting hard work. As people used to in the USA.

There is a correlation between work ethic and success. Yes, really.

I spent my career in sales. 15 minutes early was considered on time. I have hundreds of encounters with people who are habitually late. Its a power trip for most of them. I've actually walked out of meeting room because people did not show up with in 15 minutes of the starting time.

Screw thier mind games.
