My sister Sara is sharing a recent experience with us today. Remember when agonizing on the phone with various people to look for the humor! Have a great Saturday!
I had been on the phone with the airline for about an hour and a half trying book a flight for my parents using a credit from a previously canceled flight. Needless to say I had been getting the run-a-round. After answering the same questions over and over to several different agents, I finally was speaking to one who seemed to know how to help me. He asked me the previous flight number, and I told him. Then he asked the e-mail address on the account, and I told him. Next he asked the names on the tickets. I told him my mom’s name and spelled it out for him. Then I told him my father’s name and spelled it out for him. “Now,” he said, “I need your father’s date of birth and gender. “Uh…” is all I got out before I died laughing. “Don’t laugh,” he said which made my laugh even harder. I finally got it together enough to respond, “Male.”

I agree, glad it ended in laughter!
That is hilarious!!!:) Thank you for sharing this, makes my day!:)
That is too funny! While searching for a pet recently you would not believe how many neutered female cats I have come upon! But you would think people could keep humans straight!
Well, nowadays, the gender of Daddy might be a valid question. I’m just sayin… 🙂
Such a funny story! But I guess you never know in this day and age…someone’s “father” could be “female” : /
The airlines just need to be careful for security reasons that the person who is supposed to flying is actually flying!
Thanks for sharing = )
Glad humor could be found in the situation.Making phone calls to any company now a days can end in so much frustration
