Apparently there was a party last night – something about drinking and crossing the dateline. All I know is that rather than get a certificate for crossing the Equator and another one for the dateline – they put them both on the same piece of paper. To balance this out, at least everyone got a personalized certificate.
None of which helped the staff any when dealing with all the questions…. What do you mean it is Wednesday? Yesterday it was Monday!!!! Yes, but we crossed the dateline. SO!!! It is supposed to be Tuesday. Yes, and I am sure it is Tuesday at home (said to everyone without an Australian accent). Meanwhile, all the Aussies were quietly laughing at all those who really don’t have a concept of time zones or what it means to be located on the opposite side of the world from the rest of the English speaking public.
In any case, I am now ahead instead of behind Europe. Wonder what that is going to do to my ability to order “the daily deal” from Amazon or Audible…..
