The Concept of Time Zones

I used to work for a huge tech company and one of the vendors hired people so slow and stupid, they must have been exploring whole new concepts of the term 'warm body.'

One case was when our Washington DC connection to our UK offices in Bristol was down.
The tech said they took those connections offline for 'unscheduled planned maintenance.'  (first hint of an idiot)

I gave my retort that those were critical lines and the contract stated critical lines required 24 hour notice.

'Well, it's 4am, no one is at work anyway.'

'Uh, it's 10am in Bristol. No one can work.'

'Right, because it's dark outside.'

'No, it's late morning there. It is daytime and people have been at work for an hour now.'

'They work at 4am?'

'No, they work 9-4. But they can't work without the connection to our DC Offices. They are in a different time zone!'

'But it's dark outside! It's 4am in the morning. Go look!'

'It's dark HERE!! Not THERE! The sun is up there! They are 6 hours ahead of us!'

'Sir, now, how can the sun be up somewhere else? There is only one sun, okay?'

Finally I told that idiot to get a manager, a flashlight and a round object so this could be explained to him.  (Source)
