enI'm sorry I'm late today, my car broke down this morning.
enDon't worry, it's alright. Maybe next time you could call though and let me know you are running late. So we don't have to wait for you.
enOf course! I was stressed about my car and simply forgot.
enI understand. Just remember next time.
enI will. I hope I didn't miss anything important?
enWe started about 30 minutes ago, but I can go over what you have missed again.
enThank you, I really appreciate it. And sorry again for being late.
enI've been late before too because I missed the bus. It happens.
