I started carpooling with my coworker this week; he drives and picks me up from a main road near my house. Yesterday, he arrived 5 minutes late. Today, he misread the time and did not leave his house until 10 minutes after he was supposed to arrive. Luckily I had access to an alternate means of transportation and was only 10 minutes later than normal, and our company is flexible about arrival times.
Nevertheless, my coworker seems distraught about these events. Our department regularly goes out to eat together, and he has offered to pay for my food the next time we go to make it up to me. Should I accept this offer?
