time zone

2 japanese enter the office at 2 pm.

stutteringly, they say, "we are here for a 3 o'clock meeting".
i want to ask, "japan time or indian" .
i say, "please sit".

devilish intent. will ask next time when i get the chance :-)

my earlier post which talks about japanese and time.

obviously not Indian standard time! i am sure the Japanese have a watch that displays, in addition to your heartbeat, and haemoglobin content, the time at which the average Indian is likely to show up at meetings. it probably also collects data everyday and updates itself at night, so in case we all decide one day to be on time to our meetings, the watch will get screwed up a bit.

remember i had earlier written (linked in the post now) about how the japs will revere and adulate me because of my punctuality.
with that end objective in mind, i will be plesant and nice to all jap brothers and sisters.
all devilish intents shall remain so, just intents.
kenny needs a break from tangentiality.
