Time of day matters

Time of day is an important element in the context for our actions.

When the coffee shop barrista you've never met before tells you how much your order is and you hand her your hotel key:

AM: You are a harmless, uncaffeinated dorky guy who grabbed the wrong thing from his wallet.

PM: You are a creepy stalker guy extending an unwholesome invitation

(BTW, I was the AM guy. I don't want to meet the PM guy. Again.)

Unless the PM guy is extremely cute, I don't want to meet him either ;)

@NicoleB: Noted.

@Cele Girlz: Consistency is the key to making a story stick

@Mom: Thanks.

@VetTech: Yeah. Without even the shame inspiring elements to make it worth while
