Why did the receipt for my pizza show it was delivered 15 minutes before I ordered it?

Could be a quickie.

***SPOILER***
I ordered pizza at 1:30 AM Eastern Daylight time the day the clocks changed. 45 minutes later, the clocks had changed and it came at 1:15 AM.

Makes it rather easy to deliver on any 'Within 30 minutes or it's free' promise, or similar.

Makes it rather easy to deliver on any 'Within 30 minutes or it's free' promise, or similar.On the other hand, if I ordered it at 1:50 AM the day we go on Daylight Davings time, they'd have 9 minutes to deliver it or it would take more than twice as long as promised. :-)
