C has 2 night carers during the week. Both are good at their job but of totally different character. S will arrive early and make me a hot drink, sit down and have a chat and a laugh before her duty starts at 10pm. Y, if she arrives early, will sit outside in her car until the stroke of 10, come in and start turning down the bed. At 9.30 I put the door on the latch so they can walk in after knocking.
Last night, at 9 pm there was a knocking at the door. I put the chain on and peeped out. It was Y. I opened the door and smiled saying, you're really early tonight. She answered that she wasn't as it was 10 o'clock. When I said the clocks had gone back an hour, she said she knew they had. She had to see that Downton Abbey was on the TV and not the news before she believed me. I asked her to show me her IPad. She did and it showed 21.05. She then said she hadn't found out how to put her IPad or phone back. She didn't realise it was automatic as was the clock by the side of her bed and her microwave clock. She had to ring her husband as he thought the same and would be late for work. They hadn't listened to the radio or watched TV as they had been out all day.
She sat with me for an hour before she started work but was not at all pleased........I thought it was very funny, which annoyed her even more. Even C managed a humming little laugh.
