(I’m standing behind the counter at the postal outlet. We have a stand in front of the counter with a sign that shows our hours in military time. I notice a customer staring at the sign for a very long time.)

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer: “What is ’20:00’?”

Me: “20:00 means 8 pm.”

Customer: “Oh. You should put the times in English.”
