It's all a matter of perspective

At church on Friday, one of our leaders (a Jordanian) was announcing a trip to take place on Saturday (yesterday). He informed us of all the pertinent details and ended by saying that we would return to Amman at about 10.30pm.

Then he started to apologize for coming back at 10.30. Considering the trip would be starting at 2pm, I realized that some people in the congregation might think that 8.5 hours was too long for a church activity.

But then the leader continued by apologizing for the trip ending so early. "We have to return at 10.30," he said, "because some people from Irbid will be attending and they need to travel back home."

It's really true that around here, parties don't even get started until midnight or later.
