One You must have been here a long time already.

你肯定在这里等了很久了。

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.

准时被看作是很有礼貌。上课、开会或者约会迟到是很不礼貌的。当我们和老外做生意时,务必不要迟到。外国人很守时。守时作风也可以大大地提高你的信誉度。

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.

在美国,除非有紧急情况,早上很早或者晚上很晚打电话到别人家是很不礼貌的。举例来说,早上八点就被认为是很早,晚上十点就被认为是很晚了。尤其在周末,许多人喜欢晚睡晚起。所以确定不要打扰他人休息或睡觉。
