    (One of my regulars walks into the store on a Sunday morning.)

    Customer: “Sir? Are you selling alcohol today?”

    Me: “Yeah, but not until noon.”

    (The man stares at me blankly before replying.)

    Customer: “So, like one?”

    Me: “No, at noon.”

    Customer: “So, one then?”

    (I am rather confused at this point because I know he hears what I’m saying.)

    Me: “No, noon’s before one.”

    (He starts getting really upset with me.)

    Customer: “What is this ‘noon’? I don’t know what a ‘noon’ is! Where is a ‘noon’ on a clock? Does it say ‘noon’ on your clock? When is that?!”

    (I stand there dumbfounded for a few seconds.)

    Me: “Twelve, sir.”

    Customer: “Thank you!” *leaves store*
