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.)

My father had a similar encounter in a New York taxi once. He'd just got off a flight from Australia, and started one of those standard weather conversations you have with taxi drivers:

"It's cold today. Nice change from where I come from."
"Where do you come from, then?"
"Australia. It's the middle of summer there.
"And... what month would it be in Australia, then?"
