    Subject: Does this explain anything?


    I have been a Travel Agent for thirty years in
    Washington, D.C.. Here are
    examples why we might just be in BIG trouble!

    I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman ask for an aisle
    seat, so that her hair
    wouldn't get messed up by being near the window.

    I got a call from a candidate's staffer, who wanted
    to go to Capetown. I
    started to explain the length of the flight and the
    passport information, then
    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 senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a
    Florida package we did.
    I asked what was wrong with his vacation in Orlando.
    He said he was
    expecting an ocean-view room & he didn't have one. 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 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 he could rent a
    car in Dallas. When I pulled up the reservation, I
    noticed he had only a
    1-hour layover in Dallas. When I asked him why he
    wanted to rent a car, he said,
    "I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will
    need a car to drive between the gates to save time."

    An Illinois Congresswoman called last week. She
    needed to know how it was
    possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:20
    a.m. and got into Chicago at
    8:33 am. 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!

    A New York lawmaker called and asked, "Do airlines
    put your physical
    description on luggage tags? I replied, "No, why do
    you ask?" She replied, "Well,
    when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on
    my luggage that said
    (FAT), and I am overweight but I think that is very
    rude!" After putting her on
    hold for a minute while I 'looked into it' (I was
    actually laughing) I came
    back and explained the city code for Fresno, CA is
    (FAT), and that the airline
    was just putting a destination tag on her luggage.

    A Senator's aide called to inquire about a trip
    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 just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman
    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 lady Senator called and said, "I need to fly to
    Pepsi-Cola, FL. Do I have
    to get on one of those little computer planes?" I
    asked if she meant fly to
    Pensacola, FL on a commuter plane. She said, "Yeah,
    whatever!"

    A senior Senator called and had a question about the
    documents he needed in
    order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion
    about passports, I reminded
    him that he needed a visa. "Oh, no I don't. I've
    been to China many times
    and never had to have one of those." I double
    checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa.
    When I told him this he
    said, "Look, I've been to China four times and every
    time they have accepted
    my American Express!"

    A New Mexico Congresswoman called to make
    reservations, "I want to go from
    Chicago to Rhino, New York." I was at a loss for words
    Finally, I said, "Are
    you sure that's the name of the town?" "Yes, what
    flights do you have?"
    replied the lady. After some searching, I came back
    with, "I'm sorry, ma'am, I've
    looked up every airport code in the country and can't
    find a Rhino anywhere."
    The lady retorted, "Oh, don't be silly! Everyone
    knows where it is. Check your map!"
    I 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," she replied.

    Now you know why Government is in the shape that it's
    in.
