Dear 100 Hour Board,

So on the season finale of The Office, Michael sets his watch for the exact hour which Toby will be leaving. Later he is forced by Pam to give his watch to Toby. Toby then says, "I'm going to set this to Costa Rica time." Later that night, right as he's leaving, the alarm goes off. If he changed the time, shouldn't it have changed when the alarm goes off? What are your thoughts on this?

- Miss SL

A: Dear Miss SL,

Good catch! I just rewatched the exit interview and it would indeed appear that Toby immediately switches the time. I'd chalk it up to a writer's error, like the highly disputed fact of whether Jim or Pam started first at Dunder Mifflin.
