    Don’t Worry, We’ll Have The Giraffes Pull Double Shifts

    | Saint Paul, MN, USA |

    Visitor: “Hello, can you tell me how to get to the zoo?”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, but the zoo closed at 6 pm today.”

    Visitor: “But your website says that you’re open 24 hours a day.”

    Me: “No it doesn’t.”

    Visitor: “Do you have a computer with you right now to look it up?¬†I even printed out the page that says you’re open 24 hours a day.”

    Me: “No, I don’t right now, but I’ve looked at it many times before and it doesn’t say that anywhere.¬†Can I see the paper you printed out?”

    Visitor: “I don’t have it with me, but it said that you’re open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”

    Me: “Think about this. No zoo on earth would be open 24 hours a day. What you’re saying doesn’t make any sense! Are you sure you had the right website?”

    Visitor: “Of course I’m sure! Why would your website lie?”

    Me: “It doesn’t say that! Look at the door and our brochure right over there. They, along with our website, clearly say that we close at 6 pm. Now, we’re closed so you need to leave and come back when we’re open to see the animals.”

    Visitor: “But your website says I should be able to see them now! This is ridiculous!” *storms off*

    (I checked the website later that night and of course, there’s nothing there that even suggests we might be open any later than 6 pm.)
