I use 24hr time, too....just seems more professional. Also, I have to use it in my job....infact, any job that requires report/statement writing or logging should use the 24hr clock!

There are some places of business I've seen that use a 24hr clock and have a very strange tendancy to add 'a.m.' or 'p.m' to it, just so that everyone is DOUBLE (or just really really)sure that they meant 1900 in the evening and not 1900 in the morning.

Stupid... people...

That kind of stuff drives me nuts. People say "Meet me at 2 PM in the afternoon". Damn. I thought you wanted to meet at 2 PM in the morning.

They'd have to be stupid to think that lol. I just say like '1300hrs'.....afterall, that's why we use the 24hr clock, so people everywhere know instantly whether we're talking about am or pm!
