“In america, parties that are supposed to start at 9:00 P.M. actually start at 10:00 P.M. . However, rock concerts that are supposed to start at 9:00 P.M. actually start at 9:45 PM. Movies that that are scheduled for 9:00 PM dont begin until 9:09. Sporting events set for 9:00 PM begin at 9:05. However, television shows that are set for 9:00 PM DO start at 9:00 PM, unless they’re being broadcast on TBS. So what’s crazier: That I show up for things when they’re supposed to begin, or that everyone else in the entire world has somehow come to accept that every activity operates within its own unspoken, individual schedule? How is everyone else’s wrongness understood to be right?”—
It’s amazing how impossibly right he is about everything.
