I overheard this mobile phone conversation in my office carpark this morning at 11:30am:
Woman on phone: "Anyway, I'm leaving for the airport now, my flight to Melbourne is at 12:15."
"No, I've got plenty of time, it's only 10:30"
"No, it's not 11:30." (Checks watch). "OH SHIT!" (Dashes to car)
And the thing is, this woman looked like the very proper sort who would never normally swear. Anyway, there's no way in hell she could have made her flight - it's about 40 minutes just to get to the airport from here.
