(A customer calls in from Los Angeles.)

Caller: “How late are you open there?”

Me: “5 pm.”

Caller: “Yeah, but like, what time zone?”

Me: “5 pm, Pacific Standard Time.”

Caller: “What time would that be here?”

Me: “Sir, we are directly north of you so we are on the same clock as you–Pacific Standard Time.”

Caller: “Well, I don’t know your Canadian time zones! What’s that in American?”

Me: “Sir, what time is it there?”

Caller: “3:00 pm”

Me: “It is 3:00 pm here as well, we are on the same time. We close in two hours at 5 pm your time.”

Caller: “Wait a minute! It’s the same time there? Don’t you have your own time?”
