The Older Gentleman

Doppleganger?  Glimpse into the future?  Dash of Alternate Reality?  What do you think happened in the following spacetime slip???

Andrew Clapham, of Nottingham, England had a sixtyish colleague who was lame in one leg and walked with a stick.  This fellow always got to work at 8:15 a.m., and would religiously stop for a short rest at the other end of the corridor leading to the room where they both worked.
One particular morning he was late.  Andrew was concerned; but at about 8:20 a.m., as he crossed the corridor to enter another room, he saw his colleague—catching his breath at his usual spot.images
Andrew says “I thought to myself, ‘Ah, there he is,’ and relaxed, thinking nothing more about it.”  Andrew went about his work, when just after 9:00 a.m., his colleague walked into the room.
Surprised, Andrew said, “Where have you been?  I saw you up the corridor at 8:20 a.m.”  The older gentleman replied that he had only just come in as he had had trouble starting his car!

We live in a wondrous universe, and I love learning about it. Spacetime slips are one facet of existence that fascinate me. As a retired teacher I enjoy researching this topic and sharing the information I garner.
