“This didn’t happen to me, but to a friend. He had a doctor’s appointment, and took his dad with him. It was in another town about an hour away, and since the appointment was for 11 AM, they left at 9:30 to give themselves plenty of time. They pulled into the parking lot at 10:30. My friend said he remembered checking the clock in the car when they arrived, and remarking to his dad that they made good time.”
“They went into the office, and the receptionist pointed out that they were a little late, but that it was okay because the doctor was running behind. My friend told her that he had an 11 o’clock appointment, and that he was a actually a half-hour early, and she pointed to the clock on the waiting room wall… which said 11:15.
His dad checked his watch. 11:15. My friend ran out and checked the clock in the car. 11:15. Somehow, in the few dozen steps from the car to the office, they’d lost 45 minutes.
When they got home, my friend’s mom verified that they’d left home at 9:30, and there hadn’t been heavy traffic or delays of any kind. It’s a mystery to this day.” —u/President_Calhoun
