Laugh A While - Jokes

Passport Saga
I got a call from a Congress man, who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain that he needed a passport.  He interrupted me with, 'I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts.'

Without trying to make him lose face, I calmly explained, 'Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape Town is in South Africa.' Her response - click, the phone went dead.

Map Reading
A Senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we booked for him. I asked for details of what was wrong with the hotel in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, 'Don't lie to me. I am looking at the map, and Florida is a very thin state!!!'

Bad Hair Day
A New Hampshire Congresswoman asked me to book her an aisle seat on the airplane.  She did not want her hair to get messed up by being near the window.

More Map Reading
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.'


Fastest Jet in America
An Illinois Congresswoman called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:20am and got into Chicago at 8:33am. I tried to explain that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she could not understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went very fast, and she bought that!
