Thank you.

Back to you, Edgar.

Please tell me. How do you feel?

I feel like an idiot.

Wasting time ...

with a bunch of amateurs

putting my business at stake.

Now you know how your customers feel

when traveling with your airline.

- You're ...

- Edgar, please ...


and listen to me one minute.

I will make it worthwhile.

I promise.

Thank you.

Now visualize that.

I am a customer of Trans USA Airlines

with the passage at hand.

My passage indicates

my flight will leave at 14h.

I leave the company at 11 h. ..

to get to the airport with time

enough to check in.

I'm at the airport but can not even see

the check in counter ...

it is crowded with passengers

last minute, or waiting in line ...

who are trying to get tickets

at half the price I paid.

And you know what?

Your people are paying attention to them

and not me.

So I stand there in line

waiting for a long time.

Finally my turn comes

and the clerk tells me ...

"Lord, we are anticipating that there

a delay of at least two hours ...

Then, how about going to our area

rest and relax? "

I think:
What? It's two hours more

I'd be working ...

and investing in my clients.

Would have cost ten cents

for the company to call me.

But I'm not important,

to bother? "


kindly ask her ...

"Lady, why not warn me

in advance? "

She replies:

"I'm not your personal assistant."

I get mad

and ask to speak to the supervisor.

And it comes ... Mr. Calm.

I tell him what happened and he says ...

"Lord, only hire

people very well trained.

Can I buy you a cup of coffee

at the airport bar. "

I do not hear:

let's quit this bitch now. "

Instead I hear:

"How about a coffee with the smell of urine ...

that looks like it is burning in the jar

since they built the airport. "
