Laura (4/7/2009 10:35:04 PM): what i was expecting from you was that is a good idea<br />
Laura (4/7/2009 10:35:40 PM): you just NO you will Handle it yourself...so your thought was i am not capable to handle such things<br />
John (4/7/2009 10:35:58 PM): It's quite simple. I have been dealing with my travel agent for over 8 years. I book ALL my travel through her. It's that simple.<br />
Laura (4/7/2009 10:36:29 PM): that is not an issue<br />
John (4/7/2009 10:36:53 PM): For being loyal she gives me the best deals. Even if you had found a better deal, she would have matched it. This has happened before.<br />
John (4/7/2009 10:37:30 PM): Maybe I should have explained this before.<br />
Laura (4/7/2009 10:38:57 PM): it's okay<br />
John (4/7/2009 10:38:59 PM): For example, if I call her tomorrow and she tells me the fare is $ 800, I will tell her I found it online for $ 600. She will charge me $ 600<br />
Laura (4/7/2009 10:39:29 PM): See i dont hide my feelings that is why i am telling you this<br />
John (4/7/2009 10:39:37 PM): But I predict, she will quote me $ 500-550<br />
John (4/7/2009 10:40:03 PM): She has always been below the online price<br />
Laura (4/7/2009 10:40:05 PM): what makes me upset was that you dont welcome my suggestion and that i not good<br />

Laura (4/7/2009 10:41:49 PM): that's alright<br />
John (4/7/2009 10:41:59 PM): You are certainly welcome to get a quote. But as I said I will just pass it along to my agent and she will charge me the same.<br />
