I was woken up at 3am this morning by a guy calling from Denmark to follow up on his sale of international web advertising space to my poker client.
Three. In. The. Morning.
I told him it was 3am California time – and that I was in Los Angeles – and hung up. Even if I’d been in New York that would have been too early.
I find this ironic because I was watching a show last night on the Discovery/Times channel, about how the EU and its citizens relate to the United States on emotional, political and economic levels. Maybe this is why their people need to resort to blocking US products: THEY’RE NOT CHECKING THE TIME DIFFERENCE BEFORE MAKING SALES CALLS.
I called him back this morning. Our Vonage works to Europe now! Yay!
By the way, no wonder we all hate France in this country. I mean, I distrust them for a set of very legitimate World War Two reasons, but I think we distrust them now because they know that George W is a crazy Christian with no respect for the Second Amendment.
