I was astonished when I learned that most students in my class couldn't read an analog clock. What's worse...they still can't.

 

Astonishing, simply astonishing. An aunt in her gracious and dignified age, cannot send text messages, and does not use a computer, which I appreciate came along a little too late for her to substitute Poirot books for Google, but a clock, they're all around you. Fancy seeing Big Ben and not being able to read it, that just does not compute.
