This conversation is real..
I needed a return flight quote to get my European travel visa. I could not find any free quote provider online, so I started calling travel agents.
A work colleague recommended me this travel agent in Sydney’s China Town, for always giving him cheap prices on good airline flights. Here’s the conversation:
Me: Hi there. I need a quote for a return ticket to either Stockholm or Copenhagen please, whichever is cheaper from Sydney.
Lady: A moment please Sir…
(2 minutes later)
Lady: I’m sorry Sir, what’s the first city?
Me: It’s Stockhom.
Lady: Can you please spell that out for me, Sir?
Me: (!”£$%^&*) It’s Stockholm… S-T-O-C-K-H-O-L-M… the capital city of Sweden. I’m sure you have it in your system. Okay wait.. I think I’m just gonna hang up now and call another agency. Thank you though.
