Travel Agents should take a trip..TO HELL!

I hate travel agents.
Theyre all freakshows.

Ok MAYBE im over-generalizing..let me rephrase that.

All the travel agents I know, ARE FREAKSHOWS!

Just a week back, things were all 'rainbows and butterflies', coz both mine and Mink's tickets to MELBOURNE were confirmed! (Yippeeee, right? uh-uh WRONG.)
I guess the guys from Maroon5 knew better than i did..i shouldve have realised the happiness wouldnt last, when they crooned "..It's not always rainbows and butterflies.."
Dammit. I hate it when i miss out the most important words.
Ha ha....ha.

Ahh yes..Melbourne Melbourne..'twas to be a journey of self-discovery (and to get over my fear of getting lost)...'twas to be a discovery of new cultures and ways of living...but MORE IMPORTANTLY 'twas to be 12 wonderful days for my eyes to feast on gorgeous, hunky, aussie men...yknow..the type u dont get here.

Alas...all of the above was not to be.

All because my travel agent CANT COUNT.
lets not get into details coz ull prob get bored and stop reading (and we wouldnt want that, now would we!) but long story short..my friends and i went to SCREW OVER our agent..and he flipped...started banging tables and screaming..yknow.. what people in these industries usually do. ..uh NOT!
Guess who probably needs to revise his 5 year employment plan.

Needless to say, the boss offered us compensation and shit after we kicked up a fuss the size of Africa.
(I particularly liked the bit where i got up after the guy finished his rantings, and said "We are not staying here a minute longer." and walked off in a huff. So hollywood-y/ bollywood-y, ya?)

Soooo ..basically i dont have tickets..well make that cheap tickets.
I do have backup tickets but theyre a bit more expensive ..and we ALL know how cheap i am..so lets see how that goes..ha.

Dontcha just HATE it when you're picture perfect plans end up like Lindsay Lohan's figure?

Know this feeling very well. I had a good mind to bang a telephone on that idiotic travel agent's head when we were planning this trip. Travel agents are just UNREASONABLE!!!
