Define “This Afternoon”

So I called the repair place to see what’s up with my mower. I was starting to think maybe they forgot about it, and I’m still not convinced they didn’t.

“That will be ready this afternoon.”

“Okay, so when can I pick it up?”

“There’s no hurry on that, it will be ready this afternoon. Any time. Tomorrow is fine.”

“Right, but you’ve had it for 2 weeks and I need to mow my lawn, so can I pick it up today or tomorrow?”

“Any time after this afternoon.”

“So, what time would be okay?”

“This afternoon or tomorrow is fine.”
