If someone or something runs late it means that he, she or it arrives or leaves later than the time expected and we do have a second meaning here too. To run late could also mean to take longer than the expected time. All right. Let's continue. This idea alludes to the fact that one is behind schedule or will end up late for an appointment unless one can hurry, move faster to make up time. Yeah. Whether you're late for an appointment or late for work or late for school, you have to hurry because you are running late. You're behind schedule. All right. Let's continue. We have three examples here to cover these. Example number one. We are running late. We had better take a taxi to make up time. Yeah. So this is what you could do maybe, if you're not too late, you still might be able to try to move faster or go faster , make up enough time and you still could possibly arrive on time. If you're able to move faster than you usually do. Okay. But, you're still probably are leaving your house later than you normally did. Or number two. The bus is running late. It was supposed to be here ten minutes ago. And it's still not here. So it is running late. So we often say something is running late. It's again, it's behind schedule. It was supposed to be here already. All right. And number three here. This is the one that we could say to run late could also mean to take longer than expected. So the reason I didn't call you until now was because I was in a meeting that ran late. So not only can people run late, a meeting could run late too. So the meeting took longer than was originally scheduled or planned. It was an hour longer than it was scheduled to be. So the meeting ran late. So then I ended up making me late that's why I didn't contact you before time. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
