why the USA is in trouble.................................

A DC airport ticket agent offers some examples of 'why' our country is in trouble!

1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle

seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)

2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman's (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who

wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport

information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid,

but Capetown is in Massachusetts .''

Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ''Cape Cod is in

Massachusetts , Capetown is in Africa'' his response -- click.

3. A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida

package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando . He said

he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that's not possible,

since Orlando is in the middle of the state.

He replied, 'don't lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state!''


4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ''Is it possible to

see England from Canada ?''

I said, ''No.''

She said, ''But they look so close on the map.'' (OMG, again!)

5. An aide for a cabinet member (Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could

rent a car in Dallas. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour

layover in Dallas . When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said,

''I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates

to save time.'' (Aghhhh)

6. An Illinois Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week. She needed to

know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got

to Chicago at 8:33 a.m. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois,

but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the

plane went fast, and she bought that.

7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ''Do airlines put

your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to

whom?'' I said, 'No, why do you ask?' he replied, ''Well, when I checked in

with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight.

I think that's very rude!''

After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing).

I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, Ca. is

(FAT - Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on

his luggage..

8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a

trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, ''Would it

be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii ?''

9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, Bobby Bright (D) from Ala

who asked, ''How do I know which plane to get on?'' I asked him what exactly

he meant, to which he replied, ''I was told my flight number is 823, but

none of these planes have numbers on them.''

10. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) called and said, ''I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola ,

Florida . Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?''

I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola , FL on a commuter plane.

She said, ''Yeah, whatever, smarty!''

11. Mary Landrieu (D) La. Senator called and had a question about the documents

she needed in order to fly toChina . After a lengthy discussion about passports,

I reminded her that she needed a visa. 'Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many

times and never had to have one of those.'' I double checked and sure enough,

her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ''Look, I've been to China

four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!''

12. A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations,

''I want to go from Chicago to Rhino,New York ." I was at a loss for words.

Finally, I said, ''Are you sure that's the name of the town?'' 'Yes, what flights

do you have?'' replied the man. After some searching, I came back with,

''I'm sorry, sir, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find

a rhino anywhere." The man retorted, ''Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows

where it is. Check your map!''

So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered,

''You don't mean Buffalo, do you?"

The reply? ''Whatever! I knew it was a big animal!"

Now you know why the Government is in the shape that it's in!

Could anyone be this DUMB?




Dear Mother-in-Law

Please don't try to tell me how to raise my kids - I'm married to one of yours and believe me there's room for improvement!
