Passenger (to negro porter while on train for New York): “What time do we get to New York, Sam?”

Porter: “We is due to get there at 1.15; but if you has your watch set by Eastern time it would be 2.15, and, of co'se if you is goin' by daylight saving time it would be 3.15, unless we is an hour an’ fifty minutes late—which we is.“—Santa Fe Railway Magazine.
