Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank wants to know
Is better late than never always true, or are there times where never would be the preferred option?
Well I think better late than never is an option I would choose. Never seems so final. Like for instance if you were going to send a friend a birthday card, and you sent it a couple days late, I think they’d still be happy to get it, rather than you not sending a card at all.
I suppose though there are senarios where never would be more appropriate. I just can’t think of any offhand right now.
Another example I can think of where better late than never is when you apologise to someone, say a friend, a late apology is better than no apology at all.
