I have no idea what my last name actually means or where exactly it came from, so if anyone asks I always just tell them it’s the French word for “late.”

Because, I’ll admit it freely, I am definitely that guy who’s always late. As a matter of fact, as I write this right now, I do so with the knowledge that it’s going to make me slightly late for a dinner meeting I have planned tonight. But I’m not freaking out about it. I’m at peace. I know who I am. I know that I will forever be late, and there’s just nothing to be done about that.

Here are ten tweets for people who understand what that’s like.

10. No time like the present

Just show up in whatever, the fashion lives within you.

9. You snooze, you lose

That look of absolute defeat on his face.

8. “Traffic”

I just had to make about nine stops along the way.


7. Very alarming

Well excuse me for having enormous flaws that I don’t work on.

6. Cream of the crop

What kind of an absolute lunatic…

5. Chronically late person (CLP)

You have no idea what I had to go through to get here.

4. Kinda rude

It’s called being considerate of others.

3. Late vs late

It’s always both of you.

2. Short people got no reason…

We’re always on the run.

1. I take it back

I just remembered my rent costs money.

And with that, I should probably go. I’m about to be very late.

Are you always late for things?
