SAN FRANCISCO, January 12, 2006
Are you driven to distraction by a chronically tardy spouse, employee or friend? Have doctors, hairdressers, dentists, and family members kept you pacing and fuming while they examined, cut, drilled, and primped?
You're not alone. An estimated 15 to 20 percent of the U.S. population have difficulty getting to where they're going on time, and late luminaries include former president Bill Clinton, actors Robert Redford and Richard Gere, along with supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Well it's time to settle the score. Now those left waiting
in doctors' offices, beauty salons, and restaurants throughout
the world can confront their offenders in a unique, yet effective
way-by ordering a lateness citation. Diana DeLonzor, author
of the recently published, Never Be Late Again, 7 Cures
for the Punctually Challenged, will at the request of

the adage, "better late than never" is an exasperating way
Lateness citations are addressed from "The National Department
of Punctuality and Attendance", and come in two flavors-a
humorous, tongue in cheek version, and a more no-nonsense,
straightforward one. And for those particularly stubborn cases,
earlybirds can add an anonymously sent copy of Never Be
Late Again, signed with a choice of humorous or get-firm

effective tips for dealing with chronically late friends,
family, and colleagues-a must read for the timely.
