Joke 754

While we are on the subject…

Real requests fielded by an American travel agent.

  • A New Hampshire Congresswoman asked me to book her an aisle seat on the airplane.  She did not want her hair to get messed up by being near the window.
  • I got a call from a Congressman who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain that he needed a passport. He interrupted me with, “I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts.”  Without trying to make him lose face, I calmly explained, “Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape Town is in South Africa.”  The response – click, the phone went dead.
  • A Senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we booked for him. I asked for details of what was wrong with the hotel 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 am looking at the map, and Florida is a very thin state!”
  • I got a call from a Lawmaker’s wife who asked, “Is it possible to see England from Canada?” I said, “No.” She said, “But they look so close on the map.”
  • An Aide for a Bush cabinet member once called and asked if they could rent a car in Dallas.  When I looked at the reservation, I noticed that they only had a one-hour stop-over in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car for just an hour, he said, “I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between the gates to save time.”
