I had this amusing phone call to perk me up today. It was my first phone call, actually, and it occurred just in time to awaken my senses that had dulled a bit from four relaxed days of just doing nothing during my Holy Week break.
Caller: Ma'am, I just would like to ask if you give contracted rates to travel agencies?
Me: Yes, we do, Sir. Where is your office located?
Caller: In Cubao, Quezon City.
Me: I see. Please send a formal letter of request together with your business permit. For speedier processing, please send a Department of Tourism (DOT) or International Air Transport Association (IATA) accreditation.
Caller: Who will I attach it to, Ma'am?
Me: You mean "address it to?" Please address it to Ms. _____.
Caller: No, I mean attach.
Me: (saying nothing for fear that the call will drag on if I contradict him). Please fax it over to _____. Thank you.
After the call, I grinned. I did try to suppress a giggle and when my boss saw my heaving shoulders, she asked me why I was laughing. I told her and both of us burst out giggling.
Really, you're gonna attach the required documents to my colleague? LOL.
