    No Fortitude For Longitude, Part 6

    | Buenos Aires, Argentina | Geography

    (I work at a tech support call center that works with employees in the USA.)

    User: “…and where are you guys located?”

    Me: “Buenos Aires, Argentina.”

    User:Really? That far?”

    Me: “Yeah… it is pretty far from the US, isn’t it?”

    User: “And what’s the weather like today over there?”

    Me: “Well, it has been really cold all week. Today it was 32 F when I left home.”

    User: “And it is that cold during the summer?!”

    Me: “Um… no, actually, it’s not summer over here; it’s winter. We are all the way at the south.”

    User: “What do you mean it’s winter there? Are you serious?”

    Me: “Yes, when it’s summer in the north, it’s winter in the south of the world, and vice versa.”

    User: “For real? Are you sure?”

    Me: “Yes, very much indeed. It is winter here.”

    User: “Well… I guess you might be right.”

    (The user remains silent for a few seconds.)

    User: “But… when do you have Christmas?!”
