    Unhappy I'm terribly late.

    I was terribly late.
    I was very late.

    Are these correct?
    If so,which is more natural?
    Also, are there any words that is suitable to be put in the place of
    "terribly" or "very"?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Default Re: I'm terribly late.

    Both are fine and both seem natural. You could also use really instead.

    I hope this helps.
