OK – I’ve finally worked this out! 🙂
The workman I expected at 10am has his watch set to the time in South Georgia and The South Sandwich Islands, which is why he arrived a little over 2 hours late! It’s an obvious mistake given that they are also British territory, ruled by the Queen and drive on the left. But it doesn’t mean that 10am there is the same as 10am here……
In fact, I would think it would be safe to say that everybody that you have to wait in for has their watch set to this time zone. Except if you’re 2 minutes late home. Then they have an automatic reset and it can magically get them to your house on time so they can leave a ‘We missed you’ card. Aaarrrrghhh!
In the time it’s taken me to log in and vent my frustrations at having to wait an additional 2 hours for said workman, he’s finished and gone. Sigh…..
Why can’t they all be like Handy Manny?
