But the trip to the travel agent wasn't nearly as straight forward as one would think. No, it took OVER TWO HOURS. I honestly don't think it would have taken me over two hours to book the flights myself... Then again, if I *HAD* booked the flights myself, I would have missed out on this:
Manager: Hey, [name]?
Travel agent: Yeah?
Manager: What's the time difference between here and Sydney?
Me: What the fuck?
Travel agent: Oh jeez. I'm not sure... An hour ahead, maybe?
Me: No, seriously, what the fuck?
Manager: That doesn't sound right...
Me: No shit.
Travel agent: Well, I know Adelaide is half an hour behind, so Sydney must be ahead of us. But maybe they're only half an hour ahead?
Manager: That must be it!
Me: I can't believe I'm giving you people money. Excuse me while I text everyone I know...

(Dear America - in case you're confused, I did a screenshot for you:
Welcome to the world of marvelling at just how stupid a question this is. It's not like Australia has a whole lot of cities to choose from...)
Have you ever been baffled by the stupidity of someone you were giving large sums of money to??
