1. I had someone ask for an aisle seat so
that their hair wouldn't get messed up by
being near the window.
2. A client called in inquiring about a package
to Hawaii. After going over all the cost information,
she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California
and then take the train to Hawaii?"
3. 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 Cape Town 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 was "click."
4. 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."
5. 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."
6. 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."
7. 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!
