Mama Deb [userpic]

One of the agents was confused just now. She has customers from Brazil, and they just told her it was 100F there this time of year. She didn't understand until I told her that "Brazil is below the equator. It's summer there now." This was confirmed by the customers.

"Really? I can't believe it! When is it winter?"

"When it's our summer."

"Really? I can't believe it!"

And, yes, she was utterly serious. Scary, no?

In other news, I am bored. You know what that means.

Three words. Fandom. Pairing. First post gets story (if I know the fandoms.)

How can anyone *not* know that seasons depend on the hemisphere?!? That's like not knowing the earth is round or something. O.O

This same person felt sorry for penquins and thought it was terrible they lived in Antarctica.

But they do. They don't have to worry about polar bears, though.

Head thump on desk. Oy vey!

There are also people who don't know the seasons are caused by axial tilt, so, nothing surprises me any more.

Isn't there a song about how axial tilt is The Reason For The Season?
