Losing 15 Mins Every Day & Night

It feels like I loose 15 minutes every morning and evening night.

I wake up at 9am, potter around a bit while getting ready for work. I look at the clock again and it’s 9.30am. I gather my stuff, check that I have everything and I leave the house and walk to my car. When I get it, I look at the clock at it states “09:45”. It couldn’t have taken me 15 minutes to ride the lift and get to my car!

And at night, at about midnight when I’m ready to get into bed, I slide in and cover myself with the duvet, get comfortable and look at the clock and it’s 12.15am!

Where do those first and last 15 minutes of my day go to?

It’s a phenomenon. Like when you put a load of laundry into the machine. At the end of the cycle, you have all your clothes minus one sock. So what happened to the other sock? It’s one of those unexplainables.

I experience this as well, but not specifically 15 minutes. Mine seem to be more in intervals of 5 minutes. haha. Perhaps all this time we lose, is actually accumulated by a higher being (god if you will) and then used to supply the next human! Think about it, 6 billion people losing 5 minutes a day on average will 'time power' a whole new person! Now how many minutes does an average person live?... hm....

That is an interesting take on the issue. That could be probable. Maybe that's why the year seems to be flying by. It also reminds me me off a white collar con man taking 5 cents from each account in the bank and ended up being a millionaire. Would you accept less years to live if you have money to do more?

That is an excellent question. I think i would, depending on the deal. Let's say you're almighty and willing to let me be a Billionaire from the age of 15, to the age of 40. I might just take it.
