Really really...!

I once sat in as an interpreter for an immigration hearing in Toronto, Canada.

Then one of the adjudicators was trying to pin down the client to a particular time something happened. This person kept going round and around...

Client: "I am saying it happened in the afternoon".

Adjudicator: "For the third time, I am asking you a direct question, at what time?"

Client: "Sir, in Ghana and Africa, we only have four times. Morning, afternoon, evening and night time".

Adjudicator: "What.....you never used the watch or clock?"

That is Ghana for you. We are always on time so long as the arrival to an event falls within the allocated time period: Morning, afternoon, evening and night.

Leave us alone.
