It's that special time of the year...maybe.

So.  Steve is in Japan for the week.  The good news is that his cell phone works there - so it doesn't cost anything for me to call him.  The bad news?  Umm...figuring out when to call him. Japan is one day ahead, but seven hours earlier.  Let's do the math.  Right now, plus twenty four minus seven (10:20pm[here] + 24) -7 = 3:20pm tomorrow afternoon[there].
My problem?  I was always better at addition than I was at subtraction...and frankly story problems just aren't my favorite thing.  Which is why I called Steve this morning at 8am. (8am[here] + 24) - 7 = 1am tomorrow morning[there].  Sorry hon.

Yeah, I know that one. I have called Jim at 2:30 a.m. while he's in China. Uh, sorry, hon!

LOL! It is all too confusing for me.

You're making this overly difficult for yourself. Add 17 hours, don't add a day and subtract 7.

It's 9:15 AM where you are. Add 12 hours. 9:15 PM. Now add 5 more. 1:15 AM tomorrow.
