Fast Flight

Unaware that Ottawa is on Eastern Standard Time and Winnipeg is on Central Standard Time, John inquired at the Ottawa airport about a plane to Winnipeg.

The next flight leaves at 1:00 p.m., the ticket agent said, and arrives in Winnipeg at 1:01 p.m.

Would you repeat, that please, John asked.

The agent did so and then inquired,
Do you want a reservation?

No, said John. I think I'll just hang around and watch that thing take off.
