That's why I hate clocks and I'm always late.

I'm one of those people who has some issues with waking up early and a small tendency to put off stuff until the very last second.
This isn't the first time it's happened to me and since procrastination is my middle name it's gonna be tough to get it straight.
So I've got this clock near my bathroom which is always 10 minutes advanced in an attempt to help me not be late so often.
My parents have to set it once in a while because of daylight savings... Yeah, as if it's my main thought: daylight savings...
One time, I was combing my hair and chatting with my mom and as I glanced at the watch, i realized that i was running out of time and had to hurry up.
It was 14h23 (like I said: 10minutes, so i thought it was 14h13) and the bus passes by at 14h15. But then i forgot about that for a few seconds and finished what i was doing.
(I just need 1 min. to make it to the bus stop near my home, so i was kinda on time...)
Everything was going smoothly but then I went to the livingroom and the clock: 14h26. I was like: FFFFF.... (sorry) OH NOES!
Yep, my parents had set the clocks...
I ran out the door and as I was closing it i realized that i had already missed the bus.
Just great. Well...
Lesson learned: 2 things: I can't trust the clocks around the house and I really need to get my butt out of bed earlier...
