Thus the aircond service man told me he would come to service my aircond at 2:00pm, after he has taken his lunch.
He called me at 1:45pm, that he has arrived at the gate. The guards at the gate demanded that he produce a pass in order to let him in. And I went down to the management office to apply for the pass.
Guard: “He can’t go in without the pass.”
Me: “But the management office is closed.”
Guard: “Yes, it opens at 2:00pm.”
Me: “But it is already 2:00pm now! You let him in first, I will get your pass for you later.”
Guard: “No, Sir. It is only 1:48pm.”
Me: “Your clock is slow. Give me your phone. I shall reprogram the clock on your phone for you.”
Guard: “No need. No need. Go in. Go in.”
5:01pm, aircond serviced. I went down to the management office to get the pass while the service men left.
Guard: “You still owe me the pass, Sir?”
Me: “Yeah, but the management office is closed.”
Guard: “Yes, it closes at 5:00pm.”
Me: “But it is only 4:30pm now!”
Guard: “No, Sir. It is already 5:01pm.”
Me: “Your clock is fast. Give me your phone. I shall reprogram the clock on your phone for you.”
Guard: “You said my clock was too slow just now. And now you are saying it is too fast?”
Me: “Just now too slow. Now too fast. Cannot is it?”
