All Wound Up About The Clock

| BC, Canada | Learning | November 15, 2013

(When my parents taught me to read a clock growing up, I had issues with 12-hour time. Since my dad worked in an industrial plant which operated on 24-hour time, they tried that and I found that naturally easier. It is my first day of Kindergarten; the teacher is setting expectations with all us kids.)

Teacher: “So you will be coming here Monday to Friday at 12 noon, and then your parents will come pick you up at 3 o’clock.”

(I start bawling.)

Teacher: “What’s wrong?”

Me: “I can’t stay until 3 o’clock!”

Teacher: “Why not?”

Me: “Bed-time is 20 o’clock!”
