My Husband sent this to me Enjoy!
Stories from Travel Agents:
I had someone ask for an aisle seat on the plane so that her
hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window.
A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, “Would it be cheaper
to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?”
I got a call from a woman who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information when she interrupted me with “I’m not trying to
make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts.”
Without trying to make HER look like the stupid one, I calmly explained, “Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in
Africa.” Her response; . . . click.
A man called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He
replied, “Don’t lie to me. I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state.”
I got a call from a man who asked, “Is it possible to see England from Canada?” I said, “No.” He said “But they look so
close on the map.”
Another man called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had a 1-hour
lay-over in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, “I heard Dallas was a big airport, and I need a
car to drive between the gates to save time.”
A nice lady just called. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:20am and got into
Chicago at 8:33am. I tried to explain that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she could not understand the concept of
time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went very fast, and she bought that!
I just got off the phone with a man who asked, “How do I know which plane to get on?” I asked him what exactly he meant, to
which he replied, “I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these darn planes have numbers on them.
A woman called and said, “I need to fly to Pepsi-cola on one of those computer planes.” I asked if she meant to fly to Pensacola on a commuter plane. She said, “Yeah, whatever.”
A woman called to make reservations, “I want to go from Chicago to Hippopotamus, New York.” The agent was at a loss for words.
Finally, the agent asks: “Are you sure that’s the name of the town?” “Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the customer.
After some searching, the agent came back with, “I’m sorry, ma’am, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a Hippopotamus anywhere.” The customer retorted, “Oh don’t be silly. Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!” The agent scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, “You don’t mean Buffalo, do you?” “That’s it! I knew it was a big animal!”
