3 minutes late

96 % of the Swiss trains arrive on time. 2 % arrive 3 minutes or fewer late. 2 % arrive more than 3 minutes late.
So when people see this sign, as I did a little while ago, (“ca. 3′ später” means it is about 3 minutes late) they generally lose their cool. How is it possible that it is so late!, many ask in frustration. I can get used to this type of punctuality but I do not forget waiting for more than an hour for a late bus in Miami or in San Juan. So I am cool when the train is not on time in the land of milk and money.

    So true
    . “Late” means something completely different in Miami!
