Me too which makes travel agents look like complete tits

I was in a travel agent in Newbury the other weekend and was dealing with a manager who was giving me a quote for a BA World Traveller Plus ticket to SFO returning from YVR. The lady turned to her colleague and said 'What is the letter for World Traveller P..' at which point I said 'its T for discounted, W for full fare but I dont need a full fare'

I did the same at STA Travel in Southampton with Business Class 'What fare code is it for Bus...'

cue my interruption
