The alarm clock


THE SCENE: in bed this morning, around 6.45.  The alarm has just gone off.

The Lovely Melanie: Have you touched my alarm clock?

Me: Mm? Oh, yeah, it was an hour and 20 minutes slow so I put it right.

TLM: Doh!  No wonder!  I thought it was eight o’clock.

Me: Why?

TLM: Well, I know it’s wrong, so I automatically allow for that.

Me: Why not just put it right so you don’t have to add 80 minutes every time you look at it?

TLM: What?
