In A State Of Confusion, Part 2

| Salt Lake City, UT, USA | Working | November 14, 2013

Coworker: “What state is VT?”

Me: “Uh… Vermont.”

Coworker: “Really?”

Me: “Yeah. What did you think it was?”

Coworker: “I thought it was a city. Where is Vermont?”

Me: “In the New England area.”

Coworker:New England?! Where is that?!”

Me: “You know; the area with Massachusetts, New Hampshire, etc…”

Coworker: “Oh… where did you learn that?”

Me: *laughing* “Uh… sixth grade geography.”

(Because I am laughing, my coworker thinks I am messing with her, so she checks ‘New England, USA’ online.)

Coworker: “Oh! New England Patriots! I get it!”

Nap Time Zone

| Jerusalem, Israel | Related | November 14, 2013

(I am on the phone with my mother, who does not live in the same time zone.)

Mom: “Why are you talking so low?”

Me: “I’m trying to keep quiet because the kids are asleep. They’re taking their afternoon nap.”

Mom: “Oh, I was hoping to talk to them also. Will they be awake in the next hour?”

Me: “Probably not.”

Mom: “Why did you put them to sleep so late?”

Me: “I didn’t; I put them to sleep at 1:30. That’s why I said they are asleep, not that I’m putting them to sleep.”

Mom: “What time is it over there?”

Me: “3:00.”

Mom: “What time do you usually put them to sleep?”

Me: “1:30.”

Mom: “It’s 1:30 over there?”

Me: “No, it’s 3:00.”

Mom: “You put them to sleep at 3:00?”

Me: “No, I put them to sleep at 1:30.”

Mom: “Then why did you put them to sleep at 3:00 if they usually go to sleep at 1:30?”

Me: “For the love of God, Mom!”

Breathe A Sigh Of Relief

| Leeds, England, UK | Related | November 14, 2013

(I am sat on the sofa with my sister, watching a movie. Suddenly she starts gasping.)

Me: “Were you holding your breath?”

Sister: “Yep.”

Me: “Why?”

Sister: “I don’t like breathing.”

Me: “Uh…”

Sister: “It makes me bored.”

(To this day, whenever she complains about being bored, I say ‘Hey, it’s better than breathing.’)
