What I Overheard...

01 August 2006

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.

For more, check out Overheard at the Office.


  1. Poor thing! But seriously, wouldn't you double, even triple check the time before you went to the airport?
    How long is check in time for interstate flights? For the OS ones we had to check in 5 hours ahead :/

  2. I think at Newcastle they want you there an hour before take off.

    I feel a bit sorry for her, but also can't help but laugh at how she lost a whole hour (it's not like the clocks went forward recently or anything)

  3. Haha I know!
    I can't understand it?? How can you lose a whole hour like that? There are clocks everywhere! :S

  4. I'm bad. I would've died laughing. :-)
