"Sorry I'm Late"

When I taught writing at the university, one of my pet peeves was students who arrived late to class. They annoyed me not only because they disrupted the other students who had made the effort to get there on time, but also because they had an attitude of such careless entitlement. What if everyone arrived late? Who are you to think the rules don't apply to you? I always told my students that being late was a bad habit that would not transfer well to a "real world" job. This video certainly hasn't done anything to change my mind.

Evidently Freshman Senator Barack Obama had more important things to do than to manage to make it to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings on time.
