    Local And Lost

    | Corpus Christi, TX, USA | Geography

    (A customer has just moved from Hawaii to Oregon not too long ago, and needs a number to a different department who had different business hours.)

    Me: “They are open 7 AM to 10 PM, your local time.”

    Customer: “Okay.” *pause* “Does that mean my local time in Hawaii or my local time in Oregon?”

    Me: “What state are you in?”

    Customer: “Oregon.”

    Me: “Okay, then that means your local time is Oregon time.”

    Customer: *pause* “But I used to live in Hawaii. Shouldn’t that be my local time?”

    Me: “Um, but you live in Oregon now, which makes that your local time. You’re not in Hawaii anymore.”

    Customer: *unconvinced* “Okay, bye.”
