    Me: “Welcome, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, what’s the time in the UK now?”

    Me: “Its 9pm. They’re ten hours behind.”

    Customer: “Oh, so if I call the UK in another half hour, what time will it be?”

    Me: “It’ll be 9:30pm.”

    Customer: “You mean if half an hour passes here, it will also be half an hour later there?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Customer: *surprised* “Oh! So that’s how it works?”
