Weird moment TikToker claims she suffers from time blindness as she urges employers to ‘accommodate’ people who struggle to be punctual
TikTok user Chaos Philosopher Claims He Struggles With ‘Time Blindness’ He Says Business Cultures That Don’t Suit It Should Be ‘Dismantled’
A TikToker has claimed he suffers from ‘time blindness’ and slammed businesses for criticizing tardy employees who struggle to be punctual.
The user, Chaotic Philosopher, posted the video to TikTok and said he thinks businesses need to be broken up with ‘cut’ employees who ‘struggle to stay on time’.
In the clip, she talks about asking a potential employer if they made accommodations for her ‘time blindness’.
He said: ‘I just wanted to know if there’s accommodation for people who struggle with time blindness and being on time, you know.
‘They all started yelling at me and saying there’s no accommodation for time blindness and if you struggle to be on time you’ll never get a job.’

After his claim about ‘time blindness’, he said he was told: ‘Your stupid generation wants to destroy the workplace.’
Looking upset, he added: ‘I think that a culture where workers are simply isolated because they struggle to be on time when we can see there are other solutions, yes, that culture needs to be broken.’
‘And then I asked the person how you could feel good about maintaining that kind of system.
‘And then to think I am worthy. No, if people think it’s okay to treat others like this, that’s entitlement.’
The chaotic philosopher didn’t find much sympathy after uploading the video to TikTok, before reposting it on Twitter, with commenters urging him to ‘just use an alarm’.
A user commented on the video and said: If you’re willing to accept pay blindness, I’ll accept time blindness. It only seems fair.’
Another added: ‘Someone clearly stepped into the real world for the first time that day and realized she wasn’t cut out for it.’
One woman, who said she worked as a manager and recruiter, said she understood there were delays from time to time.
But he added: ‘Life happens people – but when it’s a consistent problem, it doesn’t just affect you – it affects the whole team. Consider something for your colleagues.’
Others were less sympathetic, with one user noting that he could solve his problem by ‘setting the alarm’.
‘I have to make my own accommodation for this sort of thing. I set mine every night, alarms for everything, meal prep,’ explained another.
