  1. I was going to take a fun picture of my car's mileage but I missed both the 31337 and 32768 milestones. I'm such a failure.

      ...when someone saus that you must clock in for work at 9, they surely don't mean 9 PM, or when a friend invites you to go hunting at 5 or 6 he means AM.

      That being said, there some very few rare occasions where you could be meaning either, but they usually entail having some fucked up (time-wise) job like e.g. night guard, night club bouncher, military, policeman, pilot, 24-hour long duties, or simply staying all day before a computer :-p


      I used to work as an overnight stocker at a 24-hour grocery store, so these mix-ups did happen a lot. One example:

      "You coming to the party tonight."
      "Nah, I'm working from 12 to 6."
      ".... So why aren't you coming over?"
      "12-6 AM, is what I mean."

      Got on my nerves as this happened a lot. Maybe what pops up more often is the concept of morning and night. There's a lot of, "2 in the morning or 2 at night?" Because people don't realize that the word "afternoon" exists... I think most of my problems stem from the fact that a lot of people are incredibly stupid.

      We use "y media", "y cuarto" and "menos cuarto" for half past, quarter past and quarter to and it can be combined with the 24-hour system. We usually put "y" (and) between the hour and minutes ("trece y cuarenta" means 1:40 PM)

      Excuse my ignorance but how do you pronouce "y" in the middle of a sentence, does it make a sound like "yuh" or "eee" or something else?

      I just prefer 24 hour time to visually tell time myself, I don't speak 24 hour time when talking to other people. If it's the morning and you say it's "seven", most people have the intelligence to discern AM/PM themselves. If it's ambiguous to both parties (such as in a landlocked room or during twilight) I'll usually add "in the morning" or "in the afternoon/evening/at night" as I say it.
