So... I don't mean to be sassy but...
After a fucking ridiculous day of crazy ass bus adventures and 19 hours of bus action… I decided to write this email to my travel agent who was supposed to make the bus accommodations.
This is what I sent… I think it’s the perfect amount of sass… :
So we had some difficulty with the bus situation. When we got to the hotel
they didn't have our tickets. I'm not sure what exactly happened- whether
they gave them away or what, but basically the bus was full and we could
not get on it. Luckily, I know some Turkish so I overhead the boy working
at the front desk trying to defend himself by saying that the person who
called them about the tickets said they would send a fax and he never got
it.... granted that could have been because their machine was broken, but
for this next leg if you could call shoe string pension again to double
check that they received the fax that would be great. This leg of the trip
was sort of a disaster... it took 19 hours total. We were stuck in Selcuk
for four hours.. they nicely put us on a bus to Konya for free and gave
some extra cash for the next leg but we still had to pay some of our own
money. Then that bus from Konya kicked us out at a random bus station at
one point and we were basically coerced into buying tour, which as soon as
that transaction was complete the owner revealed that he had to drive us
to another minibus with his own car. We missed the bus, but he drove us to
cappadocia...nicely enough. So if you could really make sure that
everything works out for our bus ride to Istanbul from Cappadocia... and
then maybe double/ triple check that would be most appreciated.
