Dave’s first non fire-related post in a while
Whenever I am talking with people and need to remind them of certain obligations to be somewhere at a certain time (for instance, walking up to a group of co-workers that are supposed to be in a meeting with me, and trying to broach the subject), I check the time and say something like, “Oh, aren’t we supposed to be at blah blah blah right now?” Or, “Oh, it’s 2:30, isn;t it time for blankety blank blank?”
This is entirely appropriate and normal.
What isn’t entirely appropriate and normal is the fact that I check the time on my wristwatch… that doesn’t exist… and hasn’t for at least 20 years. And yet I still look at my wrist like an idiot all the same.
