I always get messed up with time differences. Even without the boy being in Canadia, itâ€™s actually a big part of my job â€“ a lot of my clients are OS, and also our business partners, and people donâ€™t tend to react well when you miscalculate and get them up at 3 in the AM.
Like, I know that we are 14 hours ahead of Montreal. This morning I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out â€“ if itâ€™s 10 in the PM in Montreal, what time is it here? Forget about it. I think Iâ€™m missing that part of my brain. The part that stops me being an idiot when it comes to numbers and time differences. Still, with the aid of the interwebs, I figured that shit out. And now I have a little thing I do in my head â€“ you look at the time (like, 10PM here now), you take away 2 hours, and then flip (i.e. if itâ€™s evening here, then itâ€™s morning there). 8AM in Montreal.
Viola. Idiot proof.
