Chronic Lateness Learning to leave It Behind
            Everyone is late sometimes. But do you know anyone who is always late? Do you think there is a reason why some people are chronically late? Read the article to find out.
            At the theatre, she disrupts the first act as she climbs over your knees toward her seat. When your doorbell rings on Saturday night, long after your other guests have begun eating, you know he has arrived for dinner. At work, you don’t expect her at your 9:00 A.M meeting.
            They are latecomers, and doesn’t matter if they wear a watch or use an alarm clock. Lateness is their way of life.
            Chronic lateness has spoiled friendship, and it’s a habit that has caused people to lose their jobs. Why, then, are so many people late?
            “Not arriving on time can be a form of avoidance,”says Dr. Richard Kravitz, a psychiatrist at Yale-new Haven Medical Center in Connecticut. “You are late for a party,  maybe, or coming home from work, because you don’t want to be where you’re supposed to be.”
            Other reasons for chronic lateness are more complex. Dr. Kravitz suggests that some latecomers may have masochistic tendencies. They know that their lateness will cause anger, and this serves their deep need to be punished. Alternatively, some latecomers may have a sadistic motive. For them, forcing some to wait is a way of expressing anger or resentment.
            Dr. Herbert Fensterheim, a psychologist at New York Cornell Medical Centre, agrees that lateness can be used as a weapon with which to strike out someone. However, he adds that for some people lateness is nothing more than a habit learned in childhood from a parent or an older brother or sister who also ran late. For others, lateness is a result of an inability to judge time. There are also those who are so easily distracted that they simply “lose track” of time, while others never learn to estimate or leave the time they need to keep on schedule.
            As for those of us who wait, we can set limits as to how long we will stay before leaving. When, appropriate, we can make our anger known. And though it is true that being prompt can be as compulsive as being late, Shakespeare advised this: “Better three hours too soon than a minute to late.”

6.      A Chronic latecomer is someone who…
A.    Always loses his or her job.
B.     Is sorry he or she is late.
C.     Is almost always late.
D.    Always spoil friendship.
E.     Likes to be late.

7.      A masochistic person is someone who…
A.    Likes to hurt people
B.     Wants to be punished
C.     Is angry
D.    Want to strike someone
E.     Is always late







8.      Lateness can cause some problems as follows, except…
A.    Lateness has spoiled friendship
B.     Lateness cause people to lose their jobs
C.     Lateness can be used as a weapon to strike someone.
D.    Lateness causes you to become masochistic
E.     Lateness may be a habit learned from parents, brother, etc

9.      They know that their lateness will caused anger…(paragraph 6)
The word in italic refers to …
A.    Psychologists

Can “AFI” guarantee someone to be a talented singer?
            “Menuju puncak” is a song that is so popular now. No one can deny that AFI (Akademi Fantasi Indonesia) has fascinated many fans around the nation. As one of the many talent search shows, AFI is bound to be compared with other such programs like “Indonesian Idol“, “Penghuni Terakhir”, “KDI”, “Indonesia Cantik’ and so on.
            AFI has offered a unique package for viewers; a combination between a reality show and talent show. Its way of finding real entertainers has increased the public’s awareness of the difficulties in reaching the top in the entertainment business.
             Frankly speaking, AFI has not fully succeeded in reaching its main goal. If you take an objective look at number of the winners, you’ll see that they are not yet able to fill the most basic requirements, which is sing properly. This is ironic, considering all criticisms coming from the judges about pitch tones, tempos, and everything that has to do with becoming a good singer.
            Thus, if we want to improve that Indonesian music industry, we should really think about the singer’s and the musician’s talents and train them appropriately, so they can be a professional singer or musician.

A.    To persuade the reader or listener that something is the case
B.     To persuade the reader or listener that something should or should not be the case
C.     To describe a particular program
D.    To entertain and deal with actual and vicarious experience in different ways
E.     To retell an event for the purpose of informing or entertaining
