OK something vaguely related happened to me today, and this doesn't normally happen
It was 12:05 pm - I know because I was getting sometihng photocopied and it was taking centuries and I had a class at 13:30 right? So i checked my
mobile because I just need some reassurance and mental calculations that I was gonna make it on time. I checked twice while I was waiting - first at
12:05 then again at 12:20 (on my phone each time) - bottom line, plenty of time to get to class easily without hassle. 1-2 mins later I paid the guy
and got in the car parked right outside.
The drive was a dead smooth drive with no interruptions or idiotic red lights, everything was easy and I'd been driving for about 20 minutes TOPS.
I asked my dad - whazza time popsy? And he looks at his wristwatch (yep still wears one haha) and goes "it's one thiry" ... I ask him if he's sure,
can he check again, maybe stone-age watch isn't working properly. This results in a big eye-roll and sarcy comments about his impending senility, but
he does take out his mobile phone and shows me the digital display. It says "13:30".
I'm like - i KNOW we haven't been driving for an hour and I paid the guy around 12:25 and we hit the road before 12:30. So wtf. And dad asks 'where
did the hour go' (I mean he agreed that we hadn't been driving for ANYTHING close to an hour!!). I have no answer, but when I reached class, I
rechecked my mobile and yes, it said 1:45 pm. SO....1 hour 15 minutes have transpired BUT based on driving time for this strech - and a smooth drive
at that with hardly any traffic -it should have been 1:10 pm at most!!!
Where did that 45 minutes go??? No answer folks, no answer. My dad btw totally segued into ranting about how I should leave the house earlier and wake
up on time etc. But I am telling you - he was just as puzzled as I was about that missing hour (ok 45 mins or so). His way of dealing with the
inexplicable is to ignore it - my way?
Need I say it ... posting on ATS
[none of this is made up, even though it's humourously written]
note: unfortunately it was a cash transaction at the copy shop. with no machine-printed bill with a timestamp - otherwise I'd have all the proof I'd
need that this was a time slip (or that I've simply lost it).
