Reading of the passage
Punctuality and Keeping Promises
Unit 4
New Practical English I
Punctuality and Keeping Promise
(para.
  1) In social activities it is always
emphasized to be punctual, to have a strong conception of time. If you fail to keep your promise or do not come on time and thus keep your host waiting, that is very impolite. It’s hard to imagine what will happen if there is such an activity as a banquet, interview, or meeting, yet all people concerned do not come on time.
Unit 4
New Practical English I
If you are asked to meet a foreign guest at the airport or at the railway station and you go so late that the guest has come before you arrive, how anxious and embarrassed he will be when he ,as a stranger to the place, sees no person meeting him! The same is true with the activity of seeing off a foreign guest. If you arrive so late at the airport
or railway station to find the guest has gone already, what’s the use of your going there?
Unit 4
New Practical English I
(para.
  2)
So, as a host, whenever there
is an activity, you should come to the place ahead of schedule so as to wait for the guests to come. Don’t let the guests wait for you. It’s very impolite. Those who are to help entertain the guests should also come earlier than the guests. But for a guest, at what time is it proper to come?
Unit 4
New Practical English I
You should be punctual. That is, neither too early, nor too late. If it is too early, the host may not get the things ready. If it is too late, you may keep the host waiting. Anyone, guest or host, who is really late for a social activity, should apologize to those who have already been there.
Unit 4
New Practical English I
(para.
  3)
After making an appointment,
generally, don’t change it as that is impolite. If you do have to change, you should inform the person by telephone or with a written note as soon as possible, so that he or she can make a rearrangement. Sometimes, an appointment has been already made, but something unexpected happens and you find no time to inform the person concerned. In this case, you should make an apology to the person afterwards.
