How can it be that some people cannot grasp the concept of different time zones?

It really is very, very, very simple. Yet...

I'm taking it this is work related, with existing/potential clients? You're around 7hrs ahead of the UK right? I've had similar problems with US based clients. Ringing/emailing at 4pm EST and I haven't answered/replied because "Hey man, it's 9pm. I'm out of office." Even when I hint at suggesting "You may catch me if you contact before lunch your time." still they don't.

Some plank in front of me at Paddington clearly had a phone ticket so of course stood right next to the barriers pissing about trying to find her ticket for over a minute whilst I’m there ‘patiently’ waiting behind ready to go.

Returned from our first Tai Chi class and, unbelievably, stuck in my front door was a handwritten letter from a Jehovahs Witness. In English.

How the fuck did they know?

When they do knock, open the door naked. They'll leave you alone then.

To me, it says more about the English habit of keeping all that seething frustration pent up inside, which isn't good for the health. I can't help thinking I'd have just asked her to let a few people past while she looked for her ticket. Have I become obscenely continental?
