The Twitteratti on Travel Agents

Now that Twitter has a great search tool, I decided to simply type in “travel agent” to see what the public is saying about this esteemed profession.

Here’s a wrap of the past 24 hours…

Take a deep breath, some of it’s great, some of it’s educational, and some…not so much.

KalMan42: Ok, this trip isn't going as well as I had hoped. My travel agent may have been right. She thought I should fly, not hitchhike.

MJam76: is heading to a travel agent to book an awesome summer vacation :)

The clearly just-engaged goddessladyj is “Now off to a travel agent to see about planning our honeymoon!”

RachelRoseberry reports that “Justin Timberlake is secretly dating a travel agent.”

Daliali revealed that she had been “V annoyed at my travel agent all day but she just made up for it - first class seat to Dominica on 8 May. Fab start to the dive holiday!! (she subsequently apologized for using the word “fab.”)

Here’s a list of what followed… I omitted some comments because of language and inanity.
