台湾籍旅美老师今天交给我们的句子是:

And I always underestimate how long something is going to take. I don't like this about myself. I understand that me showing up late is seen as a sign of disrespect by people and it is! It is disrespectful. I feel terrible about that because I really respect the people I work with and I value them tremendously.

而且我总是很没时间概念。我不喜欢自己这样。我知道在别人眼中迟到代表不尊重他人,而且也确实是这样没错。这真的很失礼。我也觉得自己这样很糟糕,因为我真的很尊重与我共事的人,也非常重视他们。
