    Then I'm a bit lucky Our company style is as long you complete or do your job on done. They wouldn't bother what time you step in the office

    My home and office is a 15 minutes journey by cab, so most of the times when I wake up late, I will still turn up for work. My bosses are relatively nice people, I will just sms them and stay back abit later that day.

    It's either leave or MC for me. But if my manager on duty is nice enough, my shift can be changed to a later one, but that hardly ever happen.

    I'll work from home if I cannot even make it to the office after lunch. Because of work-related travelling, many of my colleagues are in SG for a couple of days a week only and other than being compensated for not being in SG on weekends, they also work from home whenever possible.

    Or else, even if 11am, I also just walk in. For us, it's not really the hours, just the work, so as long as you respond to emails and work requests, you won't get into trouble. If I am expected to check emails at home at 11pm, I really don't think it's fair if I am expected to be in office 9 to 6. Just .

    my boss's office is not near me.. so even if i come in late, he wouldnt know plus, he seldom call us before 10am, coz he also reading newspapers and eating his breakfast

    If my job has something urgent that i need to complete..i'll just reach late...and maybe fake a white lie....i guess most pple do this? very lousy i know

    If my job has nothing urgent for me, and i've plenty of leave days to clear, i'll take leave, if not then half day.. I try not to fake MC because it ain't a very good feeling. But well, if i'm really uneasy, i'll just go see a doc and get an mc.

    This is a very real life thread. haha...

    LOL! cute thread! I usually wake up slightly late but it really depends on what time I wake up. If its slightly 15-30 mins late I would still wake up and get ready as quick as I can for class. If its like 2 hours late, I think I would just forget it and skip class

    But of course, waking up late equates to no time to doll up
