Halacha - Borchu
Submitted by Israel  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: The Rema OC 133 writes that if one missed borchu he should say it himself at the end of davening, so his behavior seems to be sanctioned by the Shulchan Aruch. Theoretically, if he is habitually negligent in coming to shul on time an assertive Rav could potentially discipline him by banning the practice, however it is rare for a Rav today to be so bold to discipline an adult and few congregants are respectful enough to take it constructively.
