Chronic Lateness-a universal trait!!!

A MAN who has been late for everything in his life has been diagnosed with 'chronic lateness'.

According to the Daily Mail , Jim Dunbar has been late for work, holidays, meals with friends, left women waiting on first dates and even has to sneak into funerals long after they've begun.
Now the 57-year-old's chronic tardiness has been diagnosed as "chronic lateness' at an appointment at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, which he was 20 minutes late for.
It is thought that condition is caused by the same part of the brain affected by those who suffer with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and means Mr Dunbar cannot properly gauge how long things take to complete.
In fact, many ADHD sufferers complain they struggle to keep time.
A recent study of more than 200 people at San Francisco State University showed that 17 per cent were chronically late.
Those unable to be punctual displayed similar patterns in behaviour including anxiety issues and trouble with self-control.
Researchers said the problem - whether it affects a person personally or professionally - is not irreversible, however.
Psychologists recommend those affected to work to make deadlines non-negotiable, monitor how long it takes to perform certain tasks and always plan to be early.
certain people who work at our clinic especially one case manager is also a chronic late Lateef(:
