This morning my brother and his wife forgot to add the hour on. Major problem as they had invited us for lunch at 1.00pm. My SIL went into a complete panic. I told her not to worry and offered to help. We eventually sat down to a wonderful lunch at 3.00pm.Things I have said to my MIL today
This would never happen to me.
Not because I am so perfect I would never forget.
No, it's because of this:
(with apologies to Millennium Housewife for pinching her idea)
- no, sorry, Andy's not in
- he's gone to the tip
- I'm not sure when he'll be back, why?
- yes, he will come and change your clocks
- no, he's not forgotten
- I know you asked him last week
- yes, and you have phoned twice since then to remind him
- he said he'll do it, so he will, he won't forget
- no, I don't know what time he'll call
- well, it doesn't matter if you are out when he calls, he has a key
- yes, he knows the alarm code
- yes, he knows which clocks to change
- yes, he knows to do the central heating clock
- no, I don't know what time he's coming to do them
- well, as I said, he has a key, so you don't need to rush back from church
- well, I don't know if he will come while you're at church, but as I said, he has a key
- yes, I'll tell him you called when he gets home
- no, I don't know what time he'll be home
- well, as I said, he has a key
- no, he'll not forget
- yes, I'll remind him
We have this conversation twice a year - British Summer Time and Greenwich Mean Time!
