How good is your math?

I live in Paris. When I need to arrange meetings with my US colleagues in Connecticut, I subtract 6 hours from the time
15:00 - 6 = 9:00
Okay I should not call them before 3PM my local time.


When I was in Alberta last week and wanted to call the Paris office I added 8 hours
9:00 + 8 = 17:00
Got it; do not call after 10AM my local time.


Now I am in Shanghai for a week. Can someone please help me know when to call Connecticut? Paris? Alberta?
Arghh!
Oh and what time is it anyway?

  1. The math is to hard. I'd use the world clocks in your iPhone.

  2. iPhone is shut off in China - would bankrupt me! besides it is fun to have to figure things out sometimes, don't you agree?

  3. I usually agree with your idea of fun, but I'll take your word on this one!

  4. Very bad in math. I struggle with this problem always. Every six months, I have to update my formula as India has not Daylight Savings.

  5. And now that I have adjusted to the time difference it is time to return to Paris!
