Set your clocks to moron time
7/13/2011 7:00 PM EDT
We had three guys (including myself) in our first year dorm room. My one roommate and I grew up together and had similar interest and the same major, Electronics, in college. Many of our classes were also the same time/professor.
That left our other room-mate as the odd man out.
We had early lectures. Our room-mate did not. He would get to sleep in each morning.
Near the end of the semester we had managed to complete a final exam very early and were released.
On the long walk back to the dorm room we conjured up a very successful prank on our room-mate. Upon returning we stealthfully set all the clocks and watches ahead several hours. We even had to adjust our room-mates watch. We then exited the room and came back in being a little noisy, so as to wake up our room-mate.
Upon noticing the wall clock at the foot of his bed. He jumped up exclaiming, “Oh shit, I’m late for my PE final”. He said he ran to the Physical Education complex, (about one-third mile) and upon arriving searched frantically for his instructor, who was also the Men’s Basketball coach. When he found him the coach was having a meeting with one of the other coaches on his staff. Our room-mate said that he said he apologized for missing the final test and when he asked if he could make it up the coach laughed and told him he is actually two hours early.
He said he felt like a moron.
