This is a good description of the fools we have in Washington , when will
We wake up and replace them??????
 
Airport ticket agent
 
         A Washington, DC airport ticket agent offers some examples of why
  Our country is in trouble!
 
1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman 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 candidate's staffer, who wanted to go to
   Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport
 
   Information, then she interrupted me with, "I'm not trying to make you
   Look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts ."  Without trying to make
 
   Her look stupid, I calmly explained, " Cape Cod is in Massachusetts ,
   Capetown is in Africa ." . . . Her response - click.
 
3. A senior Vermont Congressman 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!" (OMG)
 
4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife 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 once called and asked if he could
   Rent a car in Dallas . When I pulled up the reservation, I 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 called last week. She needed to know
   How it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 AM got to
   Chicago at 8:33 am. 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 really fast, and she bought that.
 
7. A New York lawmaker 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?" She 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 her on hold for a minute while I looked into it (I
   Was 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 her luggage.
 
8. A Senator's aide 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 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. A lady Senator 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. A senior Senator called and had a question about the
    Documents he needed in order to fly to China . After a lengthy
Discussion
    About passports, I reminded him that he 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, his stay required
    a visa.
    When I told him this he said, "Look, I've been to China four
    Times and every time they have accepted my American Express!"
 
12. A New Mexico Congress woman 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 lady.
    After some searching, I came back with, "I'm sorry, ma'am, I've
    Looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a Rhino
    Anywhere."
    The lady 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!
