    Here Today, Gone To Maui

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Geography

    Me: “Hello and thank you for calling [travel agency]. How may I help you?”

    Caller: “Hi, I need to get to Hawaii by Saturday.”

    Me: “Okay, let me just see what flights are available.”

    Caller: “Flights? As in flying? No way! I am terrified of flying! Can you look up some train tickets for me?”

    Me: “Ma’am, Hawaii is in the middle of Pacific Ocean. There is no train service to Hawaii.”

    Caller: “What? Hawaii is part of the United States, isn’t it?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. It is.”

    Caller: “Then how can it be in the middle of the Ocean? Fine then, what about taking a boat?”

    Me: ”Ma’am, there are cruise services to Hawaii, but I can assure you that the only way you are going to get to Hawaii by Saturday is by flying.”

    Caller: “Well, what about those speed boats that drug users use from Cuba?”

    Me: “Well, ma’am, those boats don’t have the ability to cross the ocean, and Cuba is only 90 miles from the United States.”

    Caller: “90 miles? Sonny boy, Cuba is out in the middle of the ocean. Haven’t you ever looked at a map?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am.”

    Caller: “Forget it, I’ll just call another travel agency that knows their history.”

    Me: “Do you mean geography?”

    Caller: *click*
