Time: 8:07 a.m
She: Sigh ! Men !!
I (pretending to be philosophical while seething internally): Anything can happen in one minute.
She (obviously frustrated): Humph! The train will leave in a minute!
Time: 8:07:50 a.m
Catch a glimpse of six zooming blurs speeding towards the platform and blindly herd them into the nearest second class compartment.
Time: 8:07:57 a.m

Time: 8:08 a.m
The train leaves without any further ado (or earth-shaking incidents) thus enabling us to reach our final destination on time.
And to think of the sights we would have delayed captured thanks to the time sense of these men.....rather big boys......
