We all know someone who, even if he has all the time in the world, is still late, and what's more, he has these expressions "on the tip of his tongue":
I came, for my head. I'll be there in 5 minutes
Meanwhile, he's still in the shower.
Do you know how much traffic you have?

I was sleeping
Or you were watching videos on TikTok.
