Summer Travel Stories!

Summer Travel Stories
Good morning my fellow Rotarians!  With vacations and travel in season I thought I’d share a few stories from travel agents…

One lady asked for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window.
A woman wanted to go to Capetown, South Africa.  The agent started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information when the woman interrupted the agent with "I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts."  The agent, without trying to make her look like the stupid one calmly explained, "Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa." The woman hung up.

A man called, furious about his trip arrangements to Florida.  The agent asked what was wrong with the Orlando package and the man said he was expecting an ocean-view room.  The agent tried to explain that is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.  The man replied, "Don't lie to me. I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state."

A woman called and asked, "Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know who luggage belongs to?"  The agent said, "No, why do you ask?"   The woman replied, "Well, when I checked in the airline put a tag on my luggage that said FAT.  I'm overweight and  I need to know if there any connection"  After putting her on hold for a minute while the agent "looked into the issue" (the agent was actually hysterically laughing), the agent came back and explained the airline simply put the destination city code on the luggage tag.  And the code for Fresno, CA is FAT. 

And that my friends, is our Bottom of the News for this Friday,  August 2, 2013.  ##
