No Fortitude For Longitude, Part 5

, , , , | Right | April 13, 2011

(My store has a trivia question posted every day for customers to answer. The question reads, “How many time-zones span across Russia?”)

Me: “Hi, how can I help you today?”

Customer: “Is the answer to the question ‘one’?

Me: “No, sorry.”

Customer: “Well, how many are there, then?”

Me: “There are eleven time zones.”

Customer: “Really? I thought there was only one time-zone in the world!”
