(We are on a busy road that runs from east to west. An old man approaches me. It’s 6 AM, and the sun is just peeking out.)

Old Man: “I need to go west on this road. So west is which way?”

Me: “West is that way.” *points*

Old Man: “No, you’re wrong!”

Me: “Huh?”

Old Man: “The sun rises in the west so west would be there, where the sun is!”

Me: “Um. No sir. The sun rises in the east here. So west would be away from it where it rises.”

(The old man starts arguing heatedly, claiming his know what he’s talking about and that I’m wrong. I stick to my story, knowing I’m right. The phone rings and I answer other customers. Meanwhile the old man’s expression changes from angry to thoughtful, then FINALLY to realization. When I finish with the other customers, he approaches me again humbly.)

Old Man: “You were right.” *walks away*
