was anyone else made late for the same reason?

was the thing an act of God?

was the reason something to do with someone speaking to her? did someone call at her door or ring her? or someone in her own house?

was she late because she helped someone else?

did she drop or break something? did she make a mistake? like putting on odd shoes or her clothes inside out? was there something she couldn't find?

was a pet involved? or another animal?

So you bought the device? Does this mean that you two live in the same house? Is she your sister? Another relative? Roommate? Did the device belong to you? To everyone in the house?
Is it something that can be moved from one place to another? Or something that stays in its place (like a fridge)?

I'm running out of electric devices ): Is it something that you find in (almost) every household? Or something rather specific? Is it (approximately) the size of a: phone? toaster? vacuum cleaner?
Is it plugged in? Or battery powered? Relevant?

Just to avoid possible misunderstandings:

is the item one usually used in the bedroom? Yes bathroom? I'd say this would be unusual study? Yes living room? Yes garden? No all over?


The device was in the kitchen all the time while I lived there (and I think it's still there), but it could be used in any of the rooms mentioned above.

A clock! Oh my, that was probably too simple (; Although I wouldn't really think of it as an electronic device.

Was it an analog clock? digital?

did she see it relected in another object? like a shiny kettle?

or did she see it though an object like a bottle which distorted the image?

No to all these questions and FA. She saw the clock just the way it was.

Is it a digital clock? an analog one?

A military clock? A metric clock (one that divides the day into 10 units instead of 12)?

Are there regular numbers on the clock? roman numerals? symbols that represent the time in another way?

A military clock? A metric clock (one that divides the day into 10 units instead of 12)? No to both

Are there regular numbers on the clock? Yes roman numerals? symbols that represent the time in another way? So no to those

Is it like one of those Goofy (from Disney) watches, where the numbers are reversed (so 3 is where 9 normally is and vice-versa)?

/*************** SPOILER ***************/

At some point, while I was a student, me and three friends of mine shared an apartment and one of the first things I did there during the furnishing was putting a backwards clock into the kitchen (the only room we all shared). When reading a backwards clock, it's not sufficient to look at the hands only, since that can lead to awfully wrong results, but you also have to focus on the clock face. One of my roommates had greater problems with that, especially in the mornings when she was still tired and didn't think about the peculiarity of the clock. Don't paying enough attention to the clock face, she, especially at the beginning, more than once misread the clock in a way that she thought that it was somewhat earlier than it really was and got to school late.
