Time and Money II

A few nights back I was dinnering with a friend in a Pizza Hut in Lahore, and after placing her order she asked the waiter how long it would take.

"Twenty minutes," came the reply.

"Ah," I remarked, calculating madly. Then I explained to my friend, "That means it'll come in 14 minutes. One Pakistani rupee is equal to 70 Indian paise."
