It seems silly that East Coasters have to wait until 1PM local time because West Coast stores open at 10AM. Why not let them start reserving in-store as soon as the stores regularly open at 10 AM local time and just put a timestamp offset at time of reservation? It's a logical queue and the database software can order it properly across all time zones, i.e, PST, +1, +2, +3. As a programmer, Elon would probably agree with this idea. It also makes common sense. Why shrink the window of opportunity in the non-PST time zones? Think of the economic cost for those folks that have to take additional time off from work. What about the economic cost to the country because no one is working, they're all at the Tesla store? Tesla Sales is overthinking this time zone stuff.
