Man Diagnosed With ‘Chronic Lateness’ — After He’s Late to Doctor’s Appointment

Jim Dunbar has been late to almost everything in his life

Doctors have diagnosed a Scottish man with chronic lateness — and this after he showed up for his appointment 20 minutes late, the Evening Telegraph reports.

Jim Dunbar has been late to almost everything in his life, including first dates, dinner parties and funerals. He says his condition has cost him dozens of jobs over the years. Doctors say that Dunbar’s condition resembles ADHD and affects the part of the brain that measures how long things take. Dunbar hopes his diagnosis can help others who are also afflicted, and hopes to raise awareness about his condition.

Dunbar has a special clock that keeps perfect time, but it doesn’t help. He sets his watch fast, to no avail. He even gives himself an 11-hour head start to get to the movies on time, and still arrives 20 minutes late.

“The reason I want it out in the open is that there has got to be other folk out there with it and they don’t realise that it’s not their fault,” he said.

In some circumstances, an interpreter may interpret from one language to another whether that is English to English Sign Language, English to American Sign Language, Spanish to English to American Sign Language and so on. http://www.profischnell.de

Interpreting and translation are two closely related linguistic disciplines. Yet they are rarely performed by the same people. The difference in skills, training, aptitude and even language knowledge are so substantial that few people can do both successfully on a professional level.http://www.portedeurope.org

If you've ever invested in any pick up artist (PUA) programs, I think you'll find the techniques in the Desire System much easier to implement because they don't require you to have "10 tons of courage" before trying them out on a woman.cercare online

@TIME I think we all know quite a few people who this diagnosis would fit.
