conversation i just had on the phone with a client:

mavis: yeah, i wanted to check into a private balcony?
me: okay, i'm showing you in an ocean view, a balcony is a difference of $301 per person. would you like to make the change?
mavis: you mean, i have to PAY for it? i don't want to have to PAY for an upgrade.

*heavy sigh*

why in the WORLD do people feel that they are entitled to FREE things? especially since this person is already getting a 7 day western caribbean cruise from NEW ORLEANS on royal caribbean in an OCEAN VIEW for freaking $300 per person?

*heavy sigh again*

only how many days left until vacation? i need to pack. but i refuse to until night prior. or maybe i'll do it friday during lunch ;)

Re:
hehe wow I wrote this a long time ago..
I would ask if you enjoyed the vacation but I saw the pictures..

Yeah, its sad how many people don't seem to realize that other people wont just give them things, and then get offended when people point this out.

Re:

and i, unfortunately, deal with it on a daily basis.

at least, 9/11 is far enough behind us that not everyone uses that as an excuse anymore to get a free upgrade.

Re:
You know, its things like that, which would make me want to put them on hold, get in a car, drive to where ever they are, walk in and smack them on the head, then drive back to work, pick up the phone and say 'any other questions'?

call me crazy, but i thought that the terms "upgrade" and "pay for" were synonymous.

Re:
*nod* can you give a nice lecture to all our members, please? thanks. preciate it.

in fact, my very first call on the phone after coming back from vacation was 45 min. spent with someone arguing over the same exact thing - why they have to PAY for an upgrade. *fumes*

i hear you sistah! the problem with vacations is that it takes too long waiting for them to get there, and by the time they do, they end so quickly...

Re:
lol - that's one thing i enjoy about doing all my sales over the phone..

it's also easy to fake excitement and happiness about your product, while you slump over your desk, head in hand, practically drooling on yourself with boredom.
