Time

A lady who I pick up now and again asked me what the time was, I told her and she went to adjust her watch. I noticed that she set it five minutes fast. Why do that I asked "so I know the time" she said, this had me puzzled and so I asked a few more lady fares and they seemed to think it normal quite a few said that they had different clocks and watches set either fast or slow” so they know the right time". This must be a female thing because it baffles us guys I can't figure the logic in this even the wife thinks it's perfectly normal. I wonder how many guys check the time at home and assume that the clock is set right.

i set the clocks at home! it does my head in when people have them set either fast or slow! i almost see the logic of having a clock set fast cos if you suddenly need to rush off to catch a bus you've actually got a bit extra time than you though. however, if you KNOW the clock is fast then you're likely to think 'ah well, thats fast, i can wait a bit longer...' then miss the bus!

some people eh?
