Get the Exact Time

Every weekday morning for years, at about 11:30 am, the telephone operator in a small town received a call from a man asking for the exact time.

One day the operator got up the nerve to ask him why he called so often. "I'm foreman of the local sawmill," the man explained. "Every day I have to blow the whistle exactly at noon, so I call you to get the correct time."

"That's funny," the operator giggled. "All these years, we've been setting our clock by your whistle."
