A SILVER WRISTWATCH that once lived in a household made a good habit of doing everything on time. "It's a matter of respect", he told the other silverware, and every time they set a date, he always showed up on time. Yet the others barely ever did the same, and he usually ended up waiting for them for long hours.
Then March came, and one day the silverware decided to go to the movies. On that day, they were the ones to be on time and the wristwatch was late. "Is everything ok with him?", they wondered and after waiting ten minutes, they got really anxious, as they were not used to this happening. Not really knowing what to do, they simply decided to wait longer.
Another ten minutes passed. "Let's wait a little more... maybe he was late to get ready", the medallion told them.
When half an hour passed and the wristwatch was yet to show up, they decided it was time to act. "Maybe he got lost in the building", they thought and split teams so as to be more efficient in searching for him. They even agreed on where to meet again once they had found him, in the place exactly before the ticket office where they stood.
Exactly a minute before an hour had passed, they all assembled back together in that point, unable to find the watch and really anxious as to what might have happened to their good friend. They then thought of going back home to see if he had an accident. "But the movie starts in a while!", the ticket salesgirl shouted at them from the cashier. They found it really strange.
The wristwatch then showed up, exactly on time. "Well, it's you who came an hour earlier, as I am always on time!", he exclaimed, and they exchanged weird looks with each other. Soon, however, he explained what had happened the night while they were asleep: all the watches had changed their time to an hour ahead, displaying the new, summer time, instead. Forgetful and always late as they usually were, they had forgotten what day it was, and arrived an hour ‘earlier’. As soon as they realized what had happened, they burst into laughter with their lesson and felt embarrassed, as the wristwatch was again, as always, on time.
And so that day, not only did they enjoy their movie on the correct time, but they also realized that it's always best to show up on time, just the way the clocks shows it, for a date.
