    Military Intelligence, Part 5

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA |

    (A customer drives up to my window and hands me ticket.)

    Me: “Hello, sir. The charge is $8 please.”

    (The customer hands over money and then looks at screen which displays charge amount.)

    Customer: “You know, your screen is confusing. Before, it said 18, and now it says 8.”

    Me: “Yes, the screen displays the time before the ticket is read.”

    Customer: “Hmm, then you better fix your clocks. I don’t think I have ever heard of 18 o’clock.”

    Me: “The clock is on military time.”

    Customer: “Oh…”

    Friend in Customer’s Car: “Didn’t you serve in Iraq?”
