A humorous timer script on google maps

TM Arthur from London is on fire. Just a few days back he sent us a great script for the role of Timer. And now he is back with an even better script. We loved the humor and simplicity he managed to infuse into this one. Have a look.

Every time I start out from my office to reach our meeting venue, I check Google maps to get an idea about the time it would take me to cover the distance. And every time, Google is almost accurate. Pause for a moment and think. If Google can be so accurate down to the seconds about something as unpredictable as traffic, shouldn’t we humans be way more accurate about something totally under our control – the amount of time we speak? I agree Google has sophisticated GPS instruments at its disposal. So what, you have me – a human timer. And I will help you today in being as accurate as Google map itself.

For the prepared speeches, the time limit is 5 to 7 minutes. At the end of 5 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 6 and red at the end of 7 minutes.

For the Table Topic Session, the time limit is 1 to 2 minutes. At the end of 1 minute, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 1.5 and red at the end of 2 minutes.

For the Speech Evaluations, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At the end of 2 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 2.5 and red at the end of 3 minutes.

There is a grace time of 30 seconds after the red card is flashed each time to wrap up your speeches.

I will come back with my report towards the end of the meeting.
