It is a most curious thing that so often people are late merely because they have not allowed themselves enough time. As an example, a supervisor would ask Jane Smith how much time she felt she need to reach the company from her home, and Jane would say 40 minutes. The supervisor would then inquire as to her allowences for transportation, breakfast, washing, dressing, makeup, etc. And when it was all totaled, it would be 5 or 10 minutes more than the time Jane was allowing from the moment of her arising. She was obviously grtting up too late and needed to be shown this fact, uilizing her own figures.
Lord Manners was a rich and famous banker. When he died, he was given a magnificent funeral which was attended by hundreds of famous people. The funeral was going to be held in Westminster Abbey. Many ordinary people lined the streets to watch the procession. The wonderful black and gold carriage was drawn by six black horses. The mourners followed in silence. Lord Manners was given a royal farewell. Two tramps were among the crowd. They watched the procession with amazement. As solemn music could be heard in the distance, one of them turned to the other and whisper in admiration, "Now that's what I call really living!"
