I don't currently own/wear a watch, went out without my mobile today so was, therefore, a bit clueless about the time when I exited a meeting and found myself walking through a busy shopping centre. I spot an old woman with a watch prominently displayed on her wrist.

"Do you have the time, please?"


"No? How can you not have the time? You've got a watch on your wrist and I can see it right there. There, look, your watch. You must have the time?"

"Oh, the time? I thought you were begging. It's ten past twelve."
