    ^AHAHAHA, I can relate to that. In highschool i had a japanese exchange student come and stay with my family and mum would say 'ask her if she wants coffee' assuming that I'd speak japanese to her because I was learning it at school. So I'd say DO YOU WANT COFFEE? Its a stupid mistake we make.

    Unfortunately I'm not making these up. I think the passengers were expecting the pics to be in order of cabin #, but realistically when photogs are taking pics of you in the dining room or walking off the gangway off the ships to go ahore, they're not asking you for your cabin # (it would be too slow and arduous), so they just snap away rolls and rolls at a time, so how would the photogs know what cabin # to label your photo with?

    I found more on the internet. They've never been said/asked to me personally, but with fellow crewmembers, we can attest that they've been said:

    "Does the crew sleep on board?"

    "How far above sea level are we?"

    "Is the island surrounded by water?"

    "Does the ship generate its own electricity?"

    "Why is the sauna so hot?"

    "Are there two seetings at the midnight buffet?"

    "How many fjords to the dollar?"

    "Where's the bus for the walking tour?"

    "Does the ship dock in the middle of town?"

    "Do you send the laundry ashore?"

    "Do we have to leave the ship to go on the tour?"

    "If I don't buy a shore excursion, am I allowed off in port?"

    "Are the entertainers paid?"

    "Will I get wet if I go snorkeling?"

    "Does the outside cabin mean it's outside the ship?"

    "Is that the same moon we see at home?"

    "Why did the Greeks build so many ruins?"

    "Windsor Castle is beautiful, but why did they build it so close to the airport?"

    "Are the glaciers always there?"

    Passenger: "What is caviar?"
    Waiter: "Fish eggs, sir"
    Passenger: "In that case, I'll have two, over-easy!"

    ^These are hysterical. And they further reinforce why I've never wanted to, and never will, take a cruise.

    Well, i went to work one day with a Juicy Couture tee that had "Hotel Juicy" written across it with some sort of design under it .... So my boss(whose about 55 or so) comes up to me and was like "Hotel Juicy,oh, sounds dirty! Where is it?" in a completely serious voice.

    I asked my boss to take a package to the overnight drop box that's at the hotel behind our office.
    So he picks up the package which has FEDERAL EXPRESS written all over it, it even has a check made payable to Fedex attached to it, and he still turns and looks at me and said, "Is this UPS or Federal Express?" I said, "Considering it has FEDERAL EXPRESS written in bright orange letters I would say Federal Express, but that's just me."

    Our secretary to me after talking to the customer:
    "Hey, do we translate from Austrian?"

    A customer in the translating office I was working in:

    "Can you translate this to Latin, I'm going to send it to Latin America."

    and much more but it doesn't translate too well.


    And I would get the funniest comments from tourists when I worked in the National Arcaeological Museum in Athens:

    1) (British guy) Do you have anything from the Acropolis here?
    Me : Not really. Try the British Museum.
    Guy: *backs away slowly obviously thinking I'm about to go nuts on him screaming that we want our marbles back*
    Me: (realising how that sounded) You could also try the Acropolis Museum.
    Guy: (very distressed) Yes, thanks. Bye!

    2. American tourist: Why is everything broken?
    Me: It's thousands of years old
    American tourist: Well, couldn't you fix it?
    Me: !!!!!

    3. American tourist (again) noticing Poseidon's uncircumcised manhood in the Poseidon of Artemision statue and going on and on about how unhealthy that is.
    Me: And what do you propose we do, circumcise Poseidon?



    (ps, I just love this shot, whoever took it seems to have a bit of a skewed focus point here. Esp. since poor Poseidon isn't too well endowed)

    My co-worker asks me what I'm majoring in...
    "Psychology"
    "Oh, how cool... you can predict future.."
    I laugh... she's so funny...
    "Can you?" *Damn! She's serious!*
    "Uhm... you are probably thinking about psychics..."
    "Oh... its all the same to me.."

    Our office was "blessed" with one of those cheery women who stayed perky, no matter what. One day we gathered for a meeting and she looked at the man sitting across from me & said "WHY CAN'T YOU SMILE" and he said "Because a rep just vomited all over my shoes". The rest of us were like: "Oh-you just HAD to ask!"

    I was working with a tech from one of the companies I do business with. English is his second language and not as strong as you would like. He misunderstood what we needed and sent the wrong file. I emailed him to explain in greater detail what we needed. He replied, "I am red with egg on my face." It took us a little bit to realize he was mixing up I am red in the face and I have egg on my face.
