My coworker answered the phone and was asked when Daylight Savings Time ends. She didn’t know so she asked me to check. Being me, Wikipedia and/or Google weren’t going to be good enough, so I checked the U.S. Naval Observatory Master Clock.
Me: (checks) November 3rd.
Her: (into the phone) November 3rd….no, she’s smart. She always knows these things….no, really, we checked the internet…
Me: (indignant) It wasn’t like I just checked with Wikipedia, I checked with the U.S. Naval Observatory.
Her: (into the phone) She checked with the navel base….
Her: …They want to know what navy bases have to do with it.
Me: Nothing, but the U.S. Naval Observatory maintains the master clock that operates the network keeping time for all our satellites and most technology syncs to that time.
Her: …oh…no, she’s right.
"We checked the internet" indeed. I can’t believe she ascribed such sloppy research to me.
I am trying, with no more success than Sheldon’s ever had, to make her head explode using only my mind.
