In all honesty, this _does_ confuse me, because I've seen each used both
ways. I always have to stop and think about the intentions of the person
who wrote it to figure out which is meant. If someone's telling me, I make
sure to ask which they mean (in particular since some of those pub crawls
can get early (or late) starts!).
