Was Joe furious at the time when Mike said it? Or did he only become furious later?
Is it relevant that the time is 6:45? Or did you just choose that at random? Would this work if it was a different time?
Was Joe late for something? Was something meant to happen at 6:45? Did it?
Did Mike do something else that angered Joe?

Was Joe furious because mike expressed the time as Six Forty Five rather than saying a quarter to 7 or a quarter off 7? Did this imply that Mike came from a particular place which made Jim furious?

ok attempting a recap as I am lost:

Joe and Mike are strangers. They have yesish written contact before they meet. Place they meet is yesishly outside. The 2 were alone when they met, but there are 3 more people involved who are yopeishly connected to Joe not friends, relatives, colleagues or spouse. Mike yesishly thought Joe was asking the time with something similar to sign language (is this the written contact? did Joe write down the question of what the time was? or write some other question?) Joe and Mike were supposed to be silent for a certain amount of time - no games involved.

is it a sponsered silence? are the 3 others human? adults? all male? all female? 1 male 2 female? 2 male 1 female?

so he wrote a note on a piece of paper, and passed it to Mike? who replied that it was 6:45? but Joe didn't write "what is the time" or any equivalent? had Joe wanted Mike to write down the answer? did Joe just write a question mark? did he write a question that anyone might give a time answer to?

was it some kind of silent protest?

Is something else happening at exactly 6.45? a crime? a surprise?
By reading the note does Mike reveal that he knows something he should be quiet about? that he is still holding on to a note he should have gotten rid of?

Do we have to find out more about the place where this happened? Under a roof? under a bridge? at the entry of a building? in a cavern? in the air? under water? on earth?
Was Mike at the moment of the puzzle: working? doing a leisure activity? doing an activity of everyday life? The same questions for Joe please.

So we still have to find out more precisely what was written on the note? more about Joe? Mike? the passers-by? (are they in fact passers-by?) about what happened before Joe fell asleep? while he was asleep? after he woke up?
Was there a particular reason why Joe slept there in his car? why he put up the note (apart from not wanting to be awaken)? why Mike passed by?

Did something happen to the note so the original text and meaning was changed?

Did the note say: "I don't know what time it is"?
So Joe slept in his car and three people passed by and woke him up? did they ask him something? did they ask for the time?
Did he put up the note as a reaction on the three other people?

did part of the text get hidden? the last part? so just reading the first part made it seem like he wanted to know the time?

**********************SPOILER*********************

(based on a joke!)
Joe was on the road one day when he started feeling rather sleepy, so he decided to stop the car and take a nap. He had barely slept 5 minutes, however, when a passer-by tapped on the window, asking for the time. Slightly miffed, he gave it, then went back to sleep. Unfortunately, the same thing happened 5 minutes later. When this happened a third time, Joe had had enough. Furiously, he wrote "I DON'T KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS!" on a piece of paper, and stuck it up on the car window. Satisfied, he then settled back down for a long, uninterrupted sleep.
Little did he know that a lovely, helpful boy would soon be along to furnish him with the time.


The end!

I once worked on another puzzle based on a joke ("Superstition"). As here it took some time since the punchline was unexpected. Thank you Jackie.
