The concept of time zone was obviously lost on him as we had to explain to him that he crossed it

You simply cannot compensate for every or any type of idiocy in your programs. Just make sure that the data is stored correctly.

Also, be happy we have time zones.
In Sweden we got the same A time zone 1879. It was the railway companies that introduced that. They found it impossible to create reliable time tables when local time varied from east to west.
Before that every town had their own time. People looked at the church tower and set their pocket watches after that. And the sexton usually set it after the sun.
