There are 15 people in your department. It has been your longstanding practice to hold a weekly staff meeting at 3:00 each Wednesday afternoon. Rather, we should say you attempt to hold it at 3:00 pm because about half of your employees are more than 5 minutes late, and two or three of them are usually late by 15 minutes or more.

You have made repeated announcements about being there on time, but to no avail. Come Wednesday at 3:00 pm, you usually find yourself and the same six or seven punctual attendees present and waiting for the latecomers.
