Having FINALLY been sent the itinerary for the upcoming Alaskan cruise (not organized or booked by me) I noticed something odd. Although we arrive in Anchorage at 2 AM, we do not check-in to the hotel until 3 PM. I called my mother.
ME: “Did you notice we don’t have a hotel room the first night?”
MOM: “Let me see.” Begins reading aloud the 45-page document of which the last page highlights the travel info.
ME: “Just turn to the last page.”
MOM: “Arrive in LAX at 6:55, depart and arrive at SEA-TAC…” She LOVES calling the airport SEA-TAC.
MOM: “…SEA-TAC at 4:30. Arrive Vancouver…”
ME: “WAIT! Those aren’t the right times. How do we leave LA and arrive in Seattle two hours earlier?”
MOM: “Arrive LAX at 6:55, arrive in SEA-TAC at 4:30 then fly to Vancouver at 2:35…”
ME: Sigh. “I’ll call the travel agent.”
…more to come…
