Daylight Saving Her From Herself

, , , , | Right | March 4, 2017

(I’m shopping late at a 24-hour store when an announcement goes out that they will stop selling alcohol at 10:00 pm due to Scottish law. Another shopper comes up to me.)

Customer: “Excuse me, did they say it was nearly 10:00?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Then where has my hour gone? It says 9:00 on my watch.”

Me: “Maybe the battery is going?”

Customer: “No, it’s automatic and I never take it off.”

Me: “Umm, the clocks went forward last month?”

Customer: “Oh, they still do that?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “That’s probably it, then.” *continues with her shopping*

(I can’t believe she spent an entire month being one hour behind everyone else and did not realise.)
