So I'm pretty patient when it comes to dealing with incompetence.
Afterall, I am the one who used to pull up into my neighbors driveway when I was pregnant, thinking it was mine.
I've been known to miss a joke or two.
I shot a hole in the back of my father-in-law's truck trailer - oopsie!
And I never knew what "AKA" stood for until about 2 years ago when my little sister told me.
Thus, I understand we all have our hair-brained moments of life.
I've NEVER encountered a more ridiculous conversation than I had today;
with a TRAVEL AGENT nonetheless.
It went a little something like this:
ME: Hi, I'd like to see what resorts are available near Disneyland in the middle of March. My dates are flexible.
LADY: Where would you like to check?
ME (thinking she just misunderstood me): Oh, Disneyland.
LADY: Mam, is that on the East Coast, West Coast? Or in the North or South?
ME: Umm, Disneyland? That'd be the West Coast.
LADY: Could you be more specific of where you'd like me to check.
ME (finding this very entertaining): Oh, yeah, how about Anaheim in Southern California.
LADY: Is that on the East or West of California?
ME (thinking I should call 911 right about now to go check and see if this lady has a pulse): Oh, yeah, that would be on the West Coast of Southern California.
LADY: And can you be more specific of where you would like to go on the West Coast in California?
ME (OH MY GOSH!!!): YES! I'D LIKE TO GO TO DISNEYLAND, IN ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, ON THE WEST COAST OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ON THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT OF THE WORLD!
What are we not understanding here???
LADY: Well I see nothing available anywhere near there.
Would you like me to see if there's availability near Disneyworld in Florida?
Am I missing something here?
Please tell me I'm not the one with the problem.
PS- Please tell me you've heard of Disneyland and you know who these 2 characters are???
