(An oddly-dressed man approaches my concessions stand, looking a bit worried.)

Me: “Hi there, how may I help you?”

Customer: “What time is it?”

Me: “About a quarter to 11.”

Customer: “But what time EXACTLY is it?”

Me: “Ah…it’s exactly 10:47, sir.”

Customer: “AM or PM?”

Me: “Um, AM.”

Customer: “Thank you! And what day is it?”

Me: “It’s Tuesday, sir.”

Customer: “No, no! What is the day of the month?”

Me: “It’s July 14th.”

Customer: “Thank you. What is the year?”

Me: “Um, 2009.”

Customer: “10:47 am on July 14th, 2009? Oh no, I’m late!”
