Sun Rising From the North
While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn’t want the sun waking him up every morning.
She asked, ‘Does the sun rise in the North?. When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, ‘Oh I don’t keep up with all that stuff.’
I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, ‘The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.’
He responded, ‘Is that Eastern or Pacific time?’ Wanting
to end the call quickly, I said, ‘Uh, Pacific.’
