About time

I heard something from a student today that I couldn't believe. She asked my co-worker what the time is because she can't read clocks that aren't digital.

Surely she was joking, right? It certainly didn't appear so, and follow-up questions about this astounding fact indicated that she was serious.

Eighteen or nineteen years-old and you can't read a clock? Words fail me.

That seems ludicrous. Surely there are still analog clocks in classrooms. I know there are at my elementary school...

I asked if she was taught how to read a clock in school, and she claimed that she wasn't. It's hard for me to believe, especially since it's not difficult to figure out.
