Al and Alternate Al

The following borrows heavily from Sliding Doors (1998), starring Gwenyth Paltrow

Al got out of bed when his alarm went off at 5AM. An alternate Al hit snooze. Al got dressed, sipped some coffee, had some breakfast, and left for work at 5:20. Alternate Al leapt out of bed at 5:20. He got dressed, skipped breakfast, and had some coffee on his way to work at 5:30. Al had a leisurely drive to his monotonous job and clocked in a few minutes early. Alternate Al averaged five miles an hour over the speed limit, ran two lights as they turned red, and clocked in for his monotonous job a few minutes late. Everything else about their days was exactly the same.
