This pairs nicely with:

I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much jollier than the people who have to wait for them --E. V. Lucas

    I know of a PI that is intentionally late to every lab meeting because they want to keep their people waiting to keep them on their toes. God help you if you are late to that meeting because that PI has actively said that it shows them that your time is way more valuable than theirs. And lets face it we all know that isn't true.

    On the other hand the power PIs that are movers and shakers are always running late because people want a piece of them or need something from them. And they can be genuinely apologetic.

    And of course in the middle of these two extremes are the rest.

    The only thing worse than a PI who judges you for being later than hir is a PI who judges you for that *and* shows up early
