I'm at work now, so I'll call you later.
Today I'm working a little late so as to avoid a rush in the morning.
Could you call again later, please?
Sorry. The train was late.
It seems to me that the train is late.
Our train is delayed.
The train was delayed, so I could not arrive there on time.
The train was running late, but the 35 aboriginal children who had travelled for two hours through the South Australian desert to meet it did not seem to mind.
Of course, her flight was late, which put me into an all- American panic. "But don't worry, my love," a beaming woman behind the airline counter told me, "We'll hold the Labasa plane for your mummy ."
Alternatively, you could start later and finish later – giving you some time at the end of the day to focus without interruptions.
