|David||doesn't もの here simply refers to the 'thing' that is `already late', more than marks it as a `reason' ? Or would that be only with こと ?|| |
|diana||I thought the translation was, "Wouldn't it be better to call tomorrow, because it's already late (as far as today goes)?"|| |

I have the feeling the translation of te current example is correct, however the importance of `もの’is a bit misplaced...

The meaning is backwards.
|ashita||Would you please add more uses of "mono" to this topic. I'm newbie to Japanese, and find it quite difficult if the uses of one word are not fully listed. || |
