One day I was sitting at my desk in my Chicago suburb day job and my boss walked in.

Boss: “Chris, I just got off the phone with my client and he is emailing all the files for the project to you. Let’s take a look at them.”

Me: “Ok let’s see… no… I don’t have anything here yet.”

Boss: “But how could that be? He sent them while I was on the phone with him.”

Me: “Well it’s not instantaneous. Depending on how large the files were it will probably take at least a few minutes.”

Boss: “Oh… well they are coming from Wisconsin.”
