Speaking of 'Noon somewhere.....'
OLD story from the 70's when my summer job was driving bus (Motor Coach) for Greyhound Bus Lines.
Did a Buffalo to New York City run - about 9 hours of driving. Left at 10:00pm and ended at about 7:00am the next morning. Dropped the bus and 3 of us went to a famous Irish Pub for Corned Beef dinner. Coming out of the bar we encountered a couple ladies from the Women's Christian Temperance Union who castigated us roundly on the wages of sin and a bar at 8:00am!!
My Irish partner in his best Brogue explained that we had been up all night driving, this was 'dinner' for us, and we were going to the bunk house for 8 hours sleep before doing the reverse of the trip. They were somewhat understanding, but..........
Probably the ONLY time I ever drank beer at 8:00am in the morning!!!
