Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Father calls me up to see if I can help with organizing a trip ( they want to go to New York City ) - being the good (only) son they have... I said sure, plus I'll pick up the tab... consider it part of your Christmas gift.
So far I have them booked as follows:
Round-trip flight from their city to New York
Limo from the airport to the hotel, and then back to the airport
3 Nights at the Waldorf-Astoria Towers
2 Tickets to the Christmas Spectacular @ Radio City Music Hall ( great seats )
Dinner for 2 at NOBU, with Orchids at the table.
Limo transportation from hotel to show, dinner, and back to hotel.
... and the response I get from dear ol' Dad - "sounds great, when can I get my new golf clubs?"
(was he serious?)
Yep... and even told me which one's he wanted down to the model number, and where I could purchase them. I simply said we'll see, and hung-up... astounded.
Can I be your dad
You want clubs too? :)
It's either amazing or a sign as to how most Centurion or Platinum card holders don't take advantage of the service... or is it because AMEX takes advantage of you? I haven't figured that one out yet.
... or maybe it's just Dad that's taking advantage? ;)
I was four, and they still didn't get away with it.
Or, we can do a parent swap! If I send so much as one lousy birthday card I get moaned at for 'wasting money'.
PS:My companion here says he'll send your Dad the clubs, if he can have the tickets, and extras. That way, everyones happy!
"sounds great, when can I get my new golf clubs?"
Response 1: When you use your own credit card to buy them, the sales clerk will give your clubs along with your receipt.
Response 2: Actually, I bought you the clubs first. But then you called me about the trip, so I decided to give that to you instead and keep the clubs for myself. And boy are they NICE!
