Our Car Is Miles Better Than Yours

(I work at a call center making hotel reservations. Many calls are just full of stupid questions, but I will never forget this call.)

Me: “Welcome to [Hotel Property]! My name is [My Name]. How may I assist you today?”

Caller: “Hi! I already have a reservation. I’m just calling to ask how far [Popular Theme Park] is from the hotel.”

Me: “I can help you with that! [Popular Theme Park] is about ten miles away. We do offer complimentary shuttle service to and from the park, as well.”

Caller: “Thank you, but we’re driving our own car. Do you know how far away it’ll be if I drive there myself?”

Me: *thinking she misspoke* “How long it’ll take? It’s about a fifteen to twenty-minute drive.”

Caller: “No, honey, how far will it be for me?”

Me: “Ten miles…”

(She cheerfully thanked me again, and got off the phone as if she hadn’t just asked me such a silly question.)
