Getting Harder With Time(s)

| Working | July 17, 2013

(My mum is sorting out a catch-up appointment following an appendectomy she had a month ago.)

Mum: “So, my appointment is at half past four on [date]?”

Receptionist: “No, it’s at four o’clock on [date].”

Mum: “Right. So four o’clock on [date]?”

Receptionist: “No! Half past four on [different date]!”

Mum: “But you just said—”

Receptionist: “UGH! Are you even LISTENING? It’s at half past four on [yet another different date]!”

Mum: “…could I possibly speak with another receptionist?”
