Overheard on the plane out of Belfast…

Overheard this morning:

“They [the company] only tried to get me to take a hire car once. That was when I was travelling from Belfast to the Isle of Man. I said to them, ‘Are you sure? Will I not need to get the ferry? You know, its an island in the middle of the sea.’ The girl said, “Hold on, I’ll go and check.” She came back a few minutes later and said, ‘It’s okay, you can take a taxi instead.'”
