    These Minutes Are Minutiae

    | Ontario, Canada | Time

    (I work in the pro shop at a golf course, and people often call to make tee times. Note that our tee times are spaced 8 minutes apart.)

    Me: “Hello, this is [golf course]. How may I help you?”

    Customer: “Hi, I’d like to make a tee time for 2:30, please.”

    Me: “Alright, I’ve got 2:32. Can I have your last name, please?”

    Customer: “2:32?! That’s WAY too late! Do you have anything earlier?”

    Me: “Sure, I have 2:24.”

    Customer: “2:24?! That’s MUCH too early. You guys need to have better times!”
