Cruising                         Empty Cruising

Post by retired2 Mon Oct 19, 2015 9:49 am


All packed for the cruise, all my nicest dresses, swimsuits, short sets. Really exciting. Our local Red Hat chapter, The Late Bloomers, decided on this "all-girls" trip.  It will be my first one. and I can't wait! 

Entire day at sea, beautiful. Saw whales and dolphins. Met the Captain today, seems like a very nice man. 


At the pool today. Did some shuffleboard, hit a few golf balls off the deck. Captain invited me to join him at his table for dinner. Felt honored, and had a wonderful time. He is very attractive and attentive. 


Won $800.00 in the ship's casino. Captain asked me to have dinner with  him in his own cabin. Had  a scrumptious meal complete with caviar and champagne. He asked me to stay the night, but I declined. Told him I could not be unfaithful to my husband. 

Pool again today. Got sunburned, and I went inside to drink at piano-bar, stayed there for rest of day. Captain saw me, bought me several large drinks, Really is quite charming. Again asked me to visit his cabin for the night. Again I declined.  He said if I did not let him have his way with me, he would sink the ship! I was shocked. 


Today I saved 2,600 lives. Twice.

This happened at a New York Airport . This is hilarious. I wish I had the guts of this girl.
An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.

For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.

A crowded United Airlines flight was cancelled.

A single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travellers.

Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said:-
"I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."

The agent replied: "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."

The passenger was unimpressed.

He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear:
Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone.

"May I have your attention, please?", she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal.

"We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. 
If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14."
With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said: "Screw You!"
Without flinching, she smiled and said:

"I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too."

Proof reading is a dying art.....


Could this be another reason why the print media is disappearing? 
Most of their proofreading is done by a Spell Checker feature.


Proofreading is a dying art, wouldn't  you say?
