For some reason Tami thought it was funny when I said Half Past Seven.

So, Half Past Seven.

If you want me to speak Stoke, I can.

Dunna wurry about that, duck. I aren't even bothered.

Half past seven is funny? Now I have Catherine Tate in my head...

Are you sure it wasn't "half seven"? People definitely say half past in the US, but my family made faces when I left out the "past".

A lot of people I knew when I lived there used it as a sentence filler, more than letting it actually mean anything. But you are correct.

yes! mostly said by white van men.
