I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts.” Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ''Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape Town is in South Africa .''
堪薩斯眾議員莫爾的幕僚鮑雷克要飛往開普頓,我跟他解釋飛行時間和護照的資訊。他打斷了我說「我不是想讓你聽上去笨笨的,開普頓是在麻薩諸塞州耶。」在不顯得是他很笨的情況下,我平靜的解釋說「鱈魚角在麻州,開普頓在南非。」

His response -- click..
