I worked with someone once who would say 9-A or 9-P. I peeved at that.

This bugs me, too, SCG. I know I'm anal about grammar, but can't help wishing more people would think about what they're actually saying. The redundancy of saying "7 a.m. in the morning" is equivalent to saying "traveling westbound." You're either traveling west or you're westbound. Why is this stuff so hard to understand?
