Where are you?

Conversation 1, knowing what city Steve is in:
Joanna: where are you?
Steve: LA
Joanna: I know you are in LA.  Where are you?
Steve: Oh, in the crew room.

Conversation 2, not knowing what city Steve is in:
Joanna: where are you?
Steve: the crew room
Joanna:  no, what city are you in?
Steve: oh, LA.

One question, yet two totally different questions.

  2. And now imagine the situation if both are pilots ;-)

    Me: Hi it's me.
    Him: Where are you?


    Me: You should know, you have my rooster. I'm in Bangkok.....
    Him: Ah, sorry, I forgot. But I mean, where are you NOW?


    Me: Just doing the outside check. T/O will be in 45 minutes. And you?


    Him: Standing in the Met Office at Boston Airport.... a few seconds later: You should answer like that

  3. Haha! I had this exact conversation with my pilot over the weekend! Frustrating but slightly amusing at times.
