funny stuff...I can relate
while working a major cruiseline as a vacation planner for the big shots, I got a call from a very wealthy woman who seemed to be accustomed to
getting her way... she demanded that when the ship stopped in La Havre (france) She wanted someone from the ship to go into Paris to pick up a dress
she had ordered from a boutique. I told this silly woman that she would have to do it herself.. we don't offer personal assistants on the ship...
plus...it's quite a distance from the port into Paris...Well that set her off, and she started to rant...blah..blah..blah, wanted to speak to the
head of the company etc, etc,....anyways long story short....no one would comply with her request...so she booked a cabin for her housekeeper to come
along so that she could go pick up the dress for her...i never found out if she got her dress or not.
Another woman called me and asked how many towels did she need to bring with her on the cruise?
for those who don't know...cruiselines and hotels provide their own hotels.
How about the couple who only drank Ensure and nothing else..... I had to arrange for cases of the stuff to be sent to ship ahead of time especially
lots of more crazy cruiseline stories i could tell but i will refrain...oh but here is a good priceline.com story.
while working for them...i was supervisor...one of the phone workers had an irate customer who wanted to speak to the higher uppers.. the girl gave me
the call... after introducing myself and asking how I could assist.. the man went off on me...screaming...He knows William Shatner is there and why
the hell can't he take the call.
the world is full of nuts and sometimes i feel just like one of them.
