I got a call at 5 mins of 12:00 today, asking if I could cover a 1:00. The reporter ended up going longer than she expected in the AM job. Got there, and the other atty didn't put it on his calendar and forgot all about it.
So I left and went to the parking lot that's next to the building, and the little attendant tells me $6. I said, "For half an hour?" She says, "You got here at 11:50. It's 1:40 now." I'm staring at her like she's nuts. "You just saw me! I just got here."
She says, "I punched the card, and it says 11:50. Now it's 1:40," as she's looking at her BlackBerry.
I looked over at the punch clock, and it says 12:40. I told her, "Look at that clock. It says 12:40. So that makes sense. It's been less than an hour"
She's still staring at her BB telling me 11:40 and now 1:40.
Thankfully, her supervisor or boss or someone came over asking what's the problem. After listening to me, he says, "That clock is an hour off." And I'm still trying to get this chicky to look at the damned clock!
She says, "An hour off?" still looking at the BB time, trying to calculate but never once looking at the punch clock. "So that would make it 12:50 and now it's 1:40. $3."
As I'm walking away, it dawns on me that this girl doesn't know how to read an analog clock, only digital.
