I can understand this joke

This is a good joke.lovely..

he he :D got it

The joke should be called cold jokes in China~

that's why Chinese are very punctual...

What was this joke about?
I don't get it!

Hi mirkamil,

"The alarm was set for seven" means that the alarm went off at 7 o'clock, but the joke is that the man doesn't mean this. Instead, he means that the alarm was set for seven of the eight people in his house. He was the eighth person, for whom the alarm did not go off. It looks like he's explaining this to his boss, and it's a very difficult excuse to believe!

Best wishes,

I don't need the alarm, I wake up at 8 o'clock every day so I'm very happy because I don't late... :)))))
