Passa tid (Keeping appointments)

In Sweden it is very important to keep appointments. This applies to both private meetings with friends and meetings with people in authority. Not keeping an appointment is regarded as ill-mannered. Despite this, it is obvious that all Swedes are not good at keeping appointments. If you are late for a job interview, for example, there is a big risk that you will not get the job for that very reason.
