We would normally not encourage you to do this on any other day, but Be Late For Something Day on September 5 is the perfect excuse for you to be late.
It is believed that Be Late For Something Day was created by the Procrastinators' Club of America, an organization as a way to allow people to take a break from their busy daily schedules.
In today's world, most people spend their lives rushing and hurrying, always fighting against the clock. This unofficial holiday asks people to slow down; take a breath and savor the world around them; and enjoy the small pleasures of life. Stop and smell the roses, if you will.
Be Late For Something Day is also known as National Be Late For Something Day in the United States.
How to Celebrate?
Be late to something on purpose. But be considerate to the people who are waiting for you - call them ahead and let them know you are running late.
