    12:12 isn’t ‘AM’. They’ve turned particular into misleading, tut tut.

    • Ash says:

      There are two 12:12’s per day. One is in the AM. You don’t… dress yourself, do you? Or handle any sharp objects?

    • Nick says:

      Actually, there is only ONE 12:12. The other is technically 00:12.

    • Blackout says:

      Ah, but that’s only if you use a 24-hour clock, and most people don’t use those outside the military and sane people. So, not so many people.

    • Nit Pic says:

      According to the sign, it denotes that from Sunday through Friday it is opens at 12:12 am, aka 00:12 or twelve minutes after midnight.

      Pedantic Dick was pointing out that common sense tells us that most likely the store opens at 12:12 pm, but the sign says it opens in the middle of the night, which is unlikely.

      Ash at the goal of being demeaning and cruel was unaware of what Pedantic Dick was implying, and therefore has made a fool of his/her self.

      Nick, while stating a fact, if military time was being used, neglected the fact that the sign clearly uses the notation of am and pm. and therefore, his comment is nil.

      So that leaves Blackout, someone, who is intelligent, yet has little patience with the greater world, seeing them as insane, and incompetent. Most likely a member of the armed forces, who is disciplined, and expects others to be.

      And lastly, there is I, an imbecile who has nothing better to do than imagine the lives behind comments on an image forum, that no one should give a second thought to.

    I think they just had a shortage of ‘0’ stickers 🙂

  3. This is clearly because the shifts of the employees start prior to opening and end just after closing. It makes perfect sense.

    Sun- Fri they come in at 12:00 Sat they come in at 11:00
    Mon-Thurs they leave by 7:15
    Fri and Sat at 9:30 (odds are there’s more to do those nights before closing up shop)
    And Sun they leave at 6:00 (dratted blue laws and all)

  4. Nonnie says:

    I don’t understand why they didn’t just round to the next 15 or 10 minutes,lol. That would make “perfect sense.” I agree with Jordan, I think they just had a shortage of “0” stickers. 😉

  5. I think it is because their employees are always late, so they adjusted the times accordingly. Very Funny Thank You.

    Someone’s a little OCD.

  7. notice says:

    I was going to say they are all related to terrorist attacks, but I don’t know anything about 5:55 unless it’s a subtle warning for may 2055

  8. edw0rd says:

    either they are trying to be silly, or they are very superstitious/obsessive about numbers. some people can’t stand seeing the number 6, or they have the urge to put 7’s together, or they use common repetitive numbers, (777, 911, 711, 247, and the like)

  9. The One Guy says:

    so they call the police to leave on Friday and Saturday?

  10. Harold^Sick says:

    The store is run by Cinderella, so she comes in just after midnight and leaves 14 hours later, to party, at 7.07 pm, nothing strange about it at all.

  11. This is great – makes a change from everywhere that seems to have the same boring opening and closing times, and you’ll never wonder why they’re a few minutes late opening up…

  12. Mark says:

    This is actually from a book store in Toronto. The store is called Conspiracy Culture and sells books and DVDs related to a wide range of supposed conspiracies or “fringe” ideas. I believe the odd business hours are a tongue in cheek reference to some of the more popular conspiracies floating around the interwebs (9/11 conspiracy, London subway bombing which happened on July 7). Not sure about some of the others though.

  13. Maggie says:

    Mark, thanks for the background info! Interesting to know.

  14. popa says:

    it’s because of the bus schedule ….

  15. Me says:

    My school is like that: Get in at 8:07, out at 3:19, lunch starts at 11:04. It requires a really precise watch, especially since all the clocks in the school have different times.

  16. raba says:

    Well 9/11 we all know and July 7 in London the 12/12 and 11/11 is supposedly the end of the world (December 12 2012 on 11:11am) so that just leaves 5:55 anyone have any ideas?

  17. Cassandra says:

    Canada, ftw!

  18. Squeake says:

    5:55, 11:11 and 12:12 are fairly obvious as “lucky” times. 7:07 forms a 42 degree angle, which is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. 9:11 is also obvious. They like jokes.

  19. carafe says:

    oh, well, at least the security cameras are going for 24 hours.
    the only question is: which 24 hours??

  20. LaserLiza says:

    Am I the only one getting some kind of sinister feeling? Like if you’re still there after these specific times something terrible will happen? Like the end of the world? Or something like that? Anyone? *crickets* ANYONE?

  21. vanillabeaner says:

    The 5:55 probably refers to the Triple Nickel Incident in Sudbury, Ontario that occured near the end of the nineteenth century.
