<< Being a compulsively punctual person, that behaviour makes me
 mad, but most people here don't seem to grasp the concept of
 arriving in time. I was amazed to hear that in Japan, for example,
 apologies are asked to people in subway stations when the service
 is ten minutes late (I heard that; I don't know if it's true,
 but it wouldn't surprise me).

In Japan you must be 5 minute ahead of meeting time. But when Japanese want=20
to have you wait, they can be very late.
