No Aptitude For Latitude

| Table Mountain, South Africa | Uncategorized

(I am a customer standing behind a couple, obviously from overseas. The ticket lady had just told them that the cable car is out of order because it’s being serviced.)

Customer: “That’s unacceptable! We’ve come all the way to see the top of Table Mountain!”

(I see that the ticket lady is tired of explaining the same thing over and over, so I chip in.)

Me: “They have to service the cable car because it’s off-season. They don’t want people to get hurt if the cable car breaks.”

Customer: “Well, it’s summer where we come from!”
