A Conversation at TGV



jonzzGood evening, miss. I'm here to collect booking number '2499'.
Ticket Lady'2499'? I'm afraid, sir, you must have made a mistake. All our booking numbers are in 5 digits.
jonzzReally, urr... *Dang, what's the number... I have to call my friend... *
Ticket LadyHold on, sir. I think your number is probably '24299'. Here, let me check. *Punches some digits*. Ahhh.... 3 tickets for '300' at 11.30pm under Mr W.
jonzz*Very impressed!*. Wow, that is the correct booking, miss.
Ticket LadyThat will be RM27.00 please.
jonzz*Handing over RM30.00*
Ticket LadyExcuse me, sir, do you have small change. 1 dollar, 1 dollar?
jonzz*Oh, the lady doesn't have change* *Hands over RM32.00.
Ticket Lady*Looks flabbergasted*. Urr... how much change am I supposed to return to you?
jonzz*Wide-eyed look* I believe, miss, that RM32.00 minus RM 27.00 equals RM5.00.
Ticket Lady*Looking unconvinced and gives a sheepish grin* Umm.. sir, just give me your RM30.00.
jonzzUrrr... okay... *Hands over RM30.00.*
Ticket Lady*Fiddles in the cash register, and takes out RM3.00 AND a RM5.00 note* Sir, here's your RM3.00.
jonzz*Takes the RM3.00*
Ticket LadyNow, can you give me your RM2.00 AND the RM3.00, AND I will give your the RM 5.00 note.
jonzz*So stunned at this moment at this display of 'intelligence' and 'redundancy' so just obeyed the ticket lady.
Ticket LadyThank you, sir. Have a nice day..
jonzz . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . thank you . . .

Ianfluenza said...

I can actually empathise what was going thru her mind. Some ppl are confused at the simplest matters when it comes to money. So go easy on them...

first impression doesn't count? u mean yr first impression of her was some mathematical genius? comeon lah, why else will she be working behind the counter and not doing some mad science experiments with lab coats?

742 said...

Wa... Hope that gal isn't a Chinese...

ChinkinIn said...

By the question the yellow bear asked, can just imagine her sitting behind the counter doing exactly that! ROFLMAO

Jonzz said...

PoohBearie: ROFL...

ME: No no no, I was 'impressed' too early. Thus the first 'impress'ion. WA HA HA HA HA

742: She wasn't.

Chinkinin: Hmm... sounds like you're teasing the yellow bear. Careful she doesn't pound you. LOL
