Would you rather be late or on time?

(Un)Acceptable lateness (image via Clem Onojeghuo)

Can you coax a train out of a tunnel? Probably not, unless you’re Darth Vader or a magician.

America is the land where trains are prone to lateness. So we find things to do to fill in the gaps like passing the yellow line to “lean-and-look.”

In contrast, trains in Japan run on time. If it’s late, the train will write you a note to pass on to your employer. It’s no wonder it’s acceptable for Japanese business folks to fall asleep in meetings; they don’t get to take advantage of the public transportation’s mistakes.
