Envision that you have a significant gathering or meeting with someone who’s extraordinary and you appear at the gathering 10 minutes or all the more late. How would you apologize for being late? How would you account for yourself? 🤨
This time, you’re not going to state the most widely recognized articulation: “I’m sorry I’m late!”
We have 5 new ways for you to use next time you organize a gathering with somebody and afterward you appear late. 😉
How about we start, shall we?
1. The traffic was horrendous
You can utilize “The traffic was awful/frightful” in case you’re somebody who claims a vehicle and utilizations it to go to the gathering. It is clumsy to utilize this articulation as a conciliatory sentiment if the individuals you’re meeting with realize that you don’t have a vehicle! 😅
John: What’s taken you such a long time, Jim? We’ve been hanging tight here for a very long time!
Oliver: Sorry! The traffic was horrible today.
2. I got lost coming here
You can utilize this one if the area of the gathering, for instance, is hard to discover or if it’s a spot that you visit just because. You don’t have the foggiest idea about the area, so you get lost and continue looking and looking until you show up after the expected time at the gathering.
John: I thought we said we’d meet at 9:00 not 9:30!
Oliver: The area was hard to discover. I got lost coming here.
3. Sorry! It happens…
Indeed, this isn’t the articulation you would need to use with your chief or somebody who is in a higher position. It’s somewhat casual and you can utilize it with individuals like your loved ones… it implies that “being late” is something that happens to everyone and not simply you. I would not suggest utilizing this articulation in conferences, etc.
John: Where have you been?! We were going to leave!
Oliver: Sorry! It happens…
4. The similar story with the transport/traffic!
This is a clever one! You can utilize this articulation in case you’re somebody who’s in every case late as a result of the transport arriving behind schedule or overwhelming traffic (as we referenced previously). On the off chance that something very similar continues transpiring in each gathering, at that point it’s consistently a similar story!
John: Are you going to keep appearing late?
Oliver: Well, I don’t have to let you know! Same story with the transport.
5. The alarm turned out poorly
Here, you accuse the alert (as we generally do) and you state that it’s the motivation behind why you didn’t wake up. Once more, you wouldn’t have any desire to express this to your chief! All things considered, it’s not the alert that went poorly, is it? 😂
John: What will be your reason this time?
Oliver: What do I do? The alarm simply turned out poorly!
Okay, wonderful learners!
I trust you will utilize these articulations next time you need to state “I’m sorry I’m late!”.
Tell us different articulations that you know! 😃
