"Oops I'm Late" app

Press Release:
Independent developer Alex Reich announces the release of OopsImLate 1.0 for iOS. OopsImLate has been covered in the press from Engadget to CNET's Web App of the Week to Popular Science on one of 5 things to make meetings efficient. Using a calendar application, users no longer have to place Oops I'm late! calls to peers and/or bosses. The software does it by calculating distance between your location and destination, and notifying contacts or social media if you are running late.

I have another idea: how about being on time?       :-)

Thinking about it, people who are habitually on time are so damn rare, aren't they? I am not sure what it shows us about humans, but it's remarkable. Is it not caring, or is it incompetence? All you have to do it add the time each action will take to get you to the meeting, and add a little padding, and boom, you're on time almost always.

It's arrogance! The habitually late person assumes they are so much more important than everyone else.

Or...perhaps it's something entirely different. Just a thought. :-D
