Why Americans Should Never be Aloud to Travel

I got this from

The following are actual stories provided by travel agents:

I had someone ask for an aisle seats so that his or 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, "Capecod 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 llinois, but she could not understand the concept of time zones. Finally I told her the plane went very fast, and she bought that!

A woman called and asked, "Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know who's luggage belongs to who?" I said, "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'm overweight, is there any connection?" 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 is FAT, and that the airline was just putting a destination tag on her luggage.

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, 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 businessman 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 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 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: "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!"

Stolen Bicycle

Today, the 24th of September, in the year two thousand and nine, my bicycle was stolen. I arrived at my 6 p.m. class just like every other Thursday night. I was excited and ready to turn in my paper on the Judgment at Nuremberg. My roommate, Mathew Milewski, and I decided to be environmentally conscious and ride our bikes to class. We arrived at the OSH building on campus at about 5:55 p.m., locked up the bikes, and walked into the building to go to class. Matt and I decided to depart from the class at about 7:20 p.m. When we walked out to our bikes, something looked different. It took me a minute to realize what had happened, but alas, there was my lock, dangling from the bike rack. My bike nowhere to be seen. As I stood there I could feel a deep feeling of anger, and rage. All I could think about was who does this person think they are? How can a person walk up, see something that is not theirs, and take it with no guilt? Its sad that our society has come to this. I cannot feel safe taking my possesions out in public? This also leads me to wonder, how could no one have seen this happen? The University of Utah campus is very busy pretty much all the time. When I left my class the sun was still shining. This person walked up to my bike with some sort of clippers, I can't help but imagine they were quite large to cut the cable of my bike lock, and no one noticed?
When I got back to my house I put up a message on Facebook letting people know my bike got stolen. The first response I recieved was "so go steal someone else's bike". Was this person serious? What a terrible way to look at things. I know not all people are like this but it seems that more and more people are finding it ok to take what is not theirs. Do others, and yourself, a favor. Treat other people, and their things, with great respect.


Here is a funny interview with rapper T.I.


So this has been a pretty busy week for myself, and I know it has been busy for many of my friends. It is midterm time and winter is just around the corner. Everyone is starting to get that itch, the itch to get out and slide around on some snow. Here are some videos to help you through this hard time.

Inglorious Basterds

If you have not seen this movie, you should. This film, by Quentin Tarantino, will suck you in and have you on the edge of your seat for the entire time. It has some very graphic scenes, as you would expect from Tarantino. It has a lot of action, and some dark comedy. I would suggest seeing this one as soon as you can. It's worth the ticket

The soundtrack is mostly hip-hop based but there are some other genres in there to make everyone happy, so ill. Stoked to see what you all think about it. Again, Murray Theater, October 1st. BE THERE!
