Honorable Mention – One I experienced myself while on a cruise. I have to give you the backstory for it to make sense.
We were on a 5-night cruise out of Bayonne, NJ to Bermuda, back in 2014. We were in the main dining room for breakfast on our last morning. There was an elderly lady at a table next to us who spoke quite loudly with a thick New York accent (since I’m from Jersey, these tend to stick out to me in crowds, and it was hard not to hear her around the whole dining room. For a visual, think of the character that Mike Myers used to play on Saturday Night Live, Linda Richman, that he based on his mother-in-law for the voice, but Sophia from Golden Girls in looks!
She proudly proclaimed that next she was “going on the new Quantum Royal Caribbean ship out of Bayonne, and that [they were] going round trip to Australia on a 7-day cruise.”
Eyes wide open in disbelief. It was all I could do not to choke on my breakfast, and I kept getting the evil eye from my husband to not laugh. I had to leave the dining room to avoid choking. Geography wasn’t my top subject in school, but even I know where Australia is compared to the Tri-State area, and having experienced a 14 hour flight there from LAX. I want to be on that ship to experience that speed to make it to Australia and back to the East Coast in 7 days!
Honorable Mention #2: Can’t we just drive over the bridge or take a train to Hawaii? I really don’t want to fly there. I hate flying, and it’s such a long flight.
Not the last time I checked!
This article was meant purely to entertain. For other laughable comments, google the list by Thomas Cook. That’s a hoot! I’m not trying to make any point, or make anyone feel bad, just bring a smile to your face. It made me smile to write it, and I was sorely in need of a few good laughs.
