This is a short essay I wrote today ,without enough supporting evidence for the argument.
Please Be PunctualWith the advent of the era of the knowledge economy,time is measured not by day or hour ,but by second. However,many young people in our society tend to attach little importance to punctuality,which thus spell lots of problems.
Let's say ,you are applying for a position at a firm and the board decides to grant you an interview. And then you impress the interviewers as being unreliable and dishonest,due mainly to lateness. To be exact,it's you yourself that let such a golden opportunity slip through your fingers! Punctuality is also a matter linked with respect especially when you are invited to a party or something. The whole company there have to wait for you,rendering you extremely embarrassed. Meanwhile,the hosts as well as other guests may interpret in the way that you are less educated for you show no respect to others,as is often the case in some oriental countries.
Therefore,college students should discipline themselves.Bear in mind that punctuality is an essential element of daily life.Please be punctual,and by doing so ,you are showing great respect to others. What's more,you will,in return,win others' respect and compliment.
PS:Is there anyone who can tell me how to leave blank spaces at the beginning of each paragraph?
