Be to work on time

Look!  There is no excuse: you must be to work on time.  You are counting on the the full slate of hours to get your full paycheck.  You signed a contract with your boss to arrive at a certain time.  Your coworker is relying on you relieving her.  More than likely, if you work in a hospital, she is comleting a 12 hour shift, and is tired and ready to go home.  If you don't show up, if you have a bad track record, then that just ads to this person's stress.  Likewise, being late adds to the stress of your boss.  So don't be a dunderhead, and show up for work on time.  Or, as General Patton said: "If you're ten minutes early you're on time, if you're on time you're late."

Consider this an RT Cave Rule:  "Be to work on time."
