Has No Time To Listen To Time Zones

, , , , , | Right | July 5, 2018

(I work for the food-stamp office. I am calling a client back the next day to finish up an application. I advised her I would be calling about eight in the morning. Our office opens statewide at 8:00 am EST.)

Me: “Hi. This is [Government Office], and I am calling for [Client]. Is she around, by chance?”

Client’s Mother: “She had to go somewhere, but she will be back. You said you would call at eight!”

Me: “Ma’am, it is eight am EST.”

Client’s Mother: “NO, IT IS SEVEN, AND YOU LIED TO MY DAUGHTER!”

(I explained time zone differences, and she was still irate when the call ended because she thought I was lying.)
