It was 17:52 in the evening and I couldn’t wait for my class to finish. Only 8 more minutes… I really hate night school!
I sat there pondering the stuff on the blackboard and wondering why he wrote it only 8 minutes before class let out. It reads:
Class, I have a quest ion: What time zone are we in?
Of course I know what time zone I’m in, so why would he be asking this.
Wondering if it was a trick question, I pondered over it.
Earlier in the class I couldn’t help but notice the professor had scribbled a note on the window:
My cat needs food.
Curious, I wondered why he would put that for everyone to see.
While attempting to figure it all out, I get a text from a distant friend.
Me: hey! hows Vik?
Them: <3 love
Them: you eat dinner yet?
Me: no, in class
Me: you have breakfast yet?
Them: yeah, ate at 8 (lol), 7 min ago
Me: lucky, i'm starving
The professor looks around and taps on the blackboard to ensure everyone was working.
I then realize he is just as bored as we are and it’s not a trick question. He just wanted to keep us busy for the last few minutes… so I write down my current time zone and hand it in.
All times are standard, no daylight savings.
If you answer with the other one, it might just be correct.
After further research, I realize that the friend location is in one of those shared time zones despite the fact that it sits in another time zone. So, it might be a bit deceiving when looking at time zones.
