Different countries view time differently for example if I said I would see you tomorrow I have made a commitment to do that, a respect for time. In the Dominican Republic there is little respect for time as they say I will see you tomorrow if god is willing so if they don’t show up it is gods fault and not theirs they are off the hook. It is frustrating for someone who is raised in a country where time is important. As the people here after saying that they will be there tomorrow show up a week later and if you say something their reply is they are there not what is your problem. Interesting how different cultures view time.
