How Late Can You Be Before Your Boss Gets Mad?

Have you ever heard the line: "If you're early, you're on time . . . if you're on time, you're late . . . and if you're late, you're fired"? Turns out that's not ALWAYS true.

According to a new study, the average boss says they usually DO give their employees some wiggle room when it comes to being late.

They say you've got about SIX MINUTES . . . after that, you're late. But until then, you're probably good.

According to CareerBuilder, 29% of people say they're late to work at least once a month . . . and 16% are late at least once a week. 

This new survey does give us a chance to laugh at the worst late excuse from 2020 again - when a woman sent her boss a photoshopped picture claiming she had a nail in her tire!
