We, Mauritians have always been amazing!
While many of us always synchronise their clocks and watches to the exact time, a large majority actually set their time, a few minutes in advance. This definition of “a few minutes” may range from 1 to 15minutes” lol!
The main reason behind this is “Pou mo pas en retard”.
Indeed, by putting their watches some minutes in advance, some people are able to be more effective. They tend to become much quicker since time is running out, despite knowing that the time is actually some minutes in advance!
A little note about summertime :
The governement has announced that summertime won’t be applied this year despite the millions of profit in terms of electricity consumption. The main reason is that part of the population is not happy with this.
I guess that this decision was made because of the forthcoming elections, else why would they care to remove such a good initiative?
I believe that the summertime was actually a good thing, but it should have been for a smaller period. During my college days, I had to take the bus at 0615am everyday and I can tell you, it’s not cool to leave home in the dark, shivering with cold…
What’s the time difference in your watch and what do you think about this final decision of the government about the summertime?
