Me: “How may I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, hello. I ordered some shoes from your store and put it at a one day delivery. It said it was supposed to be delivered by 4:00 today, and it hasn’t been delivered yet.”

Me: “I’m sorry about that, sir. Where are you calling from?”

Customer: “Dallas.”

Me: “Dallas, Texas sir?”

Customer: “You know any other Dallas?”

(I check the time and see that it’s 3:00)

Me: “Sir, it’s only 3:00.”

Customer: “Now listen here son, just because it’s three o’clock where you are doesn’t mean it’s the same time over here!”

Me: “Sir, Dallas is in the same time zone as Chicago.”

Customer: “Boy, do I need to get you a map? Dallas is a million miles from Chicago!”
