So this noon, me and my colleagues decided to leave for lunch at sharp 12.30p as we all had a meeting to attend at 1.30p. S, V and me walked across the street where V bought lunch and S and me nibbled at our homemade fares. Lunch was a merry affair - we were talking about a whole bunch of interesting topics and laughter abounded.
I suddenly remembered the meeting and checked my watch. S and V were watching me and asked "Is it late?". It was only 12.50p. We were mighty surprised that only such a short time had passed by. But we all had been rather hungry - so we had just gobbled up our food real fast. Or so we thought. We decided to dilly-dally a bit before heading back to work. After some more time of dilly-dallying, I checked my watch and went "What!! It's still only 1.00p". V went "No way" and pulled out his cell phone to check the time. It was actually 1:27p - for some reason, my darn watch had been crawling :-(((! We had been having an hour-long lunch. To make things worse we were late for the meeting!
We rushed back to work. Everyone else was already at the meeting. All seats towards the back were taken. And I had to take a seat in the front- right next to my manager. My manager mouthed "Why are you late?" as I slipped into the seat next to him. Boo hoo, I am never late to meetings as a rule.
And you know what the greatest irony of it all is? One of the merry topics discussed during lunch involved S and me crowing about how punctual we always were. Sigh!
