One of the most underappreciated of sins is wasting people’s time. Frittering away an hour of someone else’s time, if you think about it, is not that different from shortening that person’s life by one hour. 

Time wasting is all the more toxic in environments that are difficult to escape, and/or where the opportunity cost (the value of what you could potentially be doing instead) is high. For example, K12 classrooms. Here, the most obvious symptom of time wasting is boredom.
