Nu? What time did you finish?

First day: 2:45 (shteeble)
Second day: 1:30 (shul)

[What accounts for the difference? I assure you it isn't because the shul davens more quickly; rather the shteeble wastes time. How? Well, for starters the shul has no auction, preferring not to turn their place of prayer into a marketplace on one of the holiest days of the year. That's 25 minutes right there. Also, the people who pray at the shul, apparently, are made from tougher, sturdier stock. They are able to power through, to the end of davening, without stopping for a recess. The "break" cost the shteeble another 30 minutes.]
