Telling Time by Age

There is an age difference in the way people express time.

I noticed this when a young clerk at my dentist’s office called to remind me that my appointment was at ten forty-five.  She must have grown up with digital clocks. I would have said quarter to eleven.

(I just thought of the name of a song: I’m An Analogue Guy in a Digital World.)
