One You must have been here a long time already.

你肯定在這里等了很久了。

1 Introduction

A Being on time is considered good manners. It's not polite to be late for classes, meetings, or appointments. When we do business with foreigners, make sure not to be late. Foreigners keep punctual time. Punctuality can greatly increase your credibility, too.

準時被看作是很有禮貌。上課、開會或者約會遲到是很不禮貌的。當我們和老外做生意時,務必不要遲到。外國人很守時。守時作風也可以大大地提高你的信譽度。

B In America, it's impolite to call someone's home very early in the morning or very late at night unless there is an emergency. For example, 8 A.M. is considered too early and 10 P.M. is considered too late. Especially on weekends, many people like to stay up late and get up late. So make sure not to disturb people who may be resting or sleeping.

在美國,除非有緊急情況,早上很早或者晚上很晚打電話到別人家是很不禮貌的。舉例來說,早上八點就被認為是很早,晚上十點就被認為是很晚了。尤其在周末,許多人喜歡晚睡晚起。所以確定不要打擾他人休息或睡覺。
