  Um… to be honest, that kind of thing hardly ever happens, ‘cause in most cases, I’m the one that others would be waiting for. However, if I had to wait for someone, then maybe I would just play with my phone, you know, read news or check what’s new on the social media.

  Yeah, definitely. Being punctual is a way to show your respect for others. If you are late all the time, like I do, people around you will lose their patience or be upset about it, which is not good for your interpersonal relationship. I learned it the hard way.

  Well, in my opinion, today, people are more punctual than they used to be, ‘cause maybe now people have realized that time is money. They don’t want to waste others’ precious time, and they don’t want to look unprofessional, you know, when they are doing business with others.

  place = (informal) a house or flat/ apartment; a person's home例如:

  Why are some people always late?

  the morning/ evening rush hour

  语言点解析:

  rush hour = the time, usually twice a day, when the roads are full of traffic and trains are crowded because people are travelling to or from work例如:

  Sometimes, I would set an alarm clock, but it doesn’t really work, ‘cause like I said, I always spend too long sitting in front of my mirror, touching up my makeup, so I often get out my place a few minutes later than I planned.

  I thought I'd better clean the place up.

  Do you think people these days are as punctual as in the past?

  If you go on like this you'll end up in prison.

  What would you do if you were waiting for someone?

  The traffic in the city is chaotic in the rush hour.

  What about dinner at my place?

雅思口语教师朱博

  I can't help thinking he knows more than he has told us.

  I left early to avoid the rush hour.

  end up = to find yourself in a place or situation that you did not intend or expect to be in例如:

  learn something the hard way = to find out how to behave by learning from your mistakes or from unpleasant experiences, rather than from being told

  I guess the traffic is one of the most common reasons. I mean, sometimes the rush-hour traffic in some parts of the city could be so horrible that we could get stuck in traffic for a long time. So even if you get out earlier than you planned, you could still be late.
