I find this just so funny

And not the least because it’s about my own uncle.

My uncle, my dad tells me, recently clocked in one minute early at his job. Spontaneously, like a bat from the ceiling, his supervisor swooped down the stairs to confront him. “Tony,” he chided managerially, “be sure to clock out today at 2:29, not 2:30, okay?” My uncle looked at him, and then broke out in to laughter. Still laughing, he grabbed a pen from his pocket and meticulously wrote “2:29” on the palm of his hand. “Okay, yes, 2:29, sure thing.” Happily, the supervisor was able to laugh about it too.

Simply hilarious.
