If I'm late then my squad is short a person which means that work will not be done on time and we will not be able to get that truck ready for the mission it's about to go on. If the trucks are late then they start to back up and will cause more work and stress to me and the members of my squad. This will cause my platoon sergeant and motor sergeant stress to find the person to replace me just to work on that truck or service.
