Going Places - No, You're Not
As I walked past a Travel Agents today, 'Going Places', a sign in the window caught my eye, cheap flights to Panama. (Ok, ok, I haven't quite given up hope of a leaving on a jet plane moment this summer), so I went in and two smartly dressed girls were sitting there talking to each other. Take a seat please said one and they carried on talking and I waited, happily, afterall it was airconditioned in there. My turn came - I say this loosely as I was still the only one. Anyway, here goes:-
Please can you let me know if I can still book the special fares to Panama?
Panama - it's in the window on a flyer
You wanna fly where?
Panama - it's mentioned in the window
Yeah - cheap flights to Panama
So, can I possibly check the fare?
Panama - 5 of us please - 2 Adults / 3 Kids
You taking all the kids?
Yes, I was hoping to
1st Assistant: There's nothing in the window
2nd Assistant: I said you should have cleaned up the window
Anyway, can I just check the fares please?
Lots of tapping later - One way?
No, we're coming back.
Where you coming back to?
So, it's not the fare in the window then?
No, there's nothing in the window.
Who wants to go to Panama anyway. Too many hats.
