Blast from the Past:
Three years ago, as the Muscatis were getting off the plane on the first stop of their honeymoon retreat, the flight attendant comes over with a cake wrapped in a box and says:" Congratulations on your marriage from all of us!"
Awwww, I say! How sweet! Now that's customer service for you! Muscati just smiles. When we get the hotel, we open the box and look at the cake and say we'll have some later. We never do, and end up throwing it out.
Back to the future:
I was at a travel agency recently for something. It was crowded. Long cue. Four people ahead of me. When there was only one person left, I moved ahead and sat on the chair behind him. It was someone who was working on a honeymoon package for him and his future bride. He asked for some changes. They said they need 10-15 minutes. He said he would come back later and left. The travle agent asked me to hold on for a bit. Made a call. Asked them how much it would cost to make the changes the man had asked for. Before hanging up he said: I should add RO. 5 for the cost of the cake onto this, right? Aha. Nods head. Hangs up. Smiles at me and says: "How may I help you?"
I stare at him speechless.
I wish we had eaten our cake.
