Two people are talking on the phone long distance.

One is in an East Coast state of the U.S., the other is in a West Coast state of the U.S.

The first asks the other, “What time is it?”

He hears the answer and says, “That’s funny. It’s the same time here!”.

Neither one of them were mistaken about the time.

How is this possible?

One person is in Eastern Oregon (Mountain time); while the other person in Western Florida (Central time), and the phone call takes place on daylight-savings-time changeover day at 1:30am.
