Tick Tock

Hub’s dad was in the marines and probably in memory of his Dad, Hub insists on keeping his own watch and alarm clock set to military time.

I HATE military time – I just don’t freakin’ get it. I guess I could figure it out, but it just takes too damn long…and I’m not in the military so I shouldn’t have to!

The problems begin when Hub and I go strolling through the Mall on a Sunday afternoon and I’ll say, “Hey Hub, what time it is?”

Hub: “15:42”.

Me: “Seriously, Hub, what time is it??”

Hub: “It is now 15:43.”

Me: “Dammit, Hub, what the hell does that mean??!! Can’t you just tell me what time it is??”

He’ll then point to his digital watch which is flashing 15:43:50.

I start shouting, “What the hell is that?? Is that some kind of scripture passage?? Is that a fuckin’ blood pressure cuff or a watch? Are you dismantling a bomb and that’s the explosion countdown???”

TELL ME WHAT TIME IT IS RIGHT NOW!!!!!

Hub replies, “It’s time for you to start wearing your own watch!”
