Forbes contributor Brent Beshore’s recent article“5 Minutes Early Is On Time; On Time is Late; Late is Unacceptable” has struck a chord on social media sites.

Beshore argues that being late is simply unacceptable. “While that sounds harsh, it’s the truth and something that should be said more often,” he said.

He admits that his opinion isn’t a popular one but he wants to change that.

“I don’t care if you’re attending a dinner party, a conference call, or a coffee meeting – your punctuality says a lot about you.”

Beshore understands that emergencies do come up and said when that happens you should apologize and explain the situation.

So what do you think– is being late simply unacceptable?
