I know this because I hit my first construction site in 1983 and have witnessed wasted minutes adding up at a frightening rate. You plan to start work at 8 am sharp with the best intentions, but you clock in a few minutes late, make a quick trip to the toilet, have a chat with Fred at the store, make a fresh cup of coffee and you’re surprised to see it’s already 8:30! Where did the time go?
That’s the makings of a time bandit right there! Nevermind the ciggy in a quiet place after the coffee is finished.
