  • Midnight Deadlines?

    Are they when the day stated comes around or the midnight of the day stated leading to the next day?

    I'M SO CONFUSED!!!!!!!

    If the deadline were midnight today... it would be tonight at 12.00pm.

      Actually, it would be 12:00 a.m..

      Noon is 12:00 p.m.

      Okay, maybe a good way to get proof is to watch the time on your computer. See whether it says noon is a.m. or p.m. - or you can stay up until midnight and see what it says.

        So, if the person has stated the deadline is midnight on, for example, a Tuesday, it would be during the Tuesday night, right? Because Tuesday has only just begun at 12:00 a.m., which is in the middle of the night between Monday and Tuesday.

        Oh heck, just tell the person you have to have a deadline of 11:00 a.m. or p.m.

        Okay, this is really annoying!!! I'm going to go think about something else.

        Oh yes, do read the wikkipedia article - how fun is that!?

          Midnight in England is a different time to midnight in America.
          Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
          Runs and hides carring a big stirry spoon. (How do you spell sturrie?)

          Poor Luna. What are we doing to her? She's already loco!

          Luna - the are at the very end of the day stated.

          Or when the vampires appear, gremlins want feeding etc. Oh stop it Annie! Stop it!

            That really made me smile Annie, poor Luna, I bet it is as clear as mud now.
            God helps them that help themselves.

              Forgive me for being blunt, but, WHAT?

              P.S. I know the difference between am and pm, and compared to last week this house is rather lacking in bloodsuckers

                I've got an idea!
                Forget all your troubles, forget all you woes.
                Forget the midnight thing and get it done the day before .
                That way you can spend all of the deadline day skipping around singing I don't have a dead line day any more. I'm done and dusted. I'm so happy tra la la.

                  Haha! That was my plan but we decided it meant tonight,so I had an extra day to get it done and now it's sorted. If they don't like it, they don't like it - I'll just have to find a corner to sit in and some worms to eat - nothing I'm not used to....
