65. Give ME a break! Many people call in to say they will be a few minutes late
Edited on Sun Apr-08-07 10:44 PM by spooky3
They can't get away with doing it a lot, but if they hit traffic in DC, or have trouble with child care, they DO IT. They may not tell the truth about why, but they do it. I live here; I know what they do as well as you do.

Not everyone has a boss who would fire them the first time they overslept. I am not arguing that all these commuters could have or should have showed up late for work because they wanted to listen to Joshua Bell play. But the opposite extreme- that no one could have called the boss and if they had, they would have gotten fired-- makes no sense either.
