Adventure of English conversations in HawaiiStory of rental car
W reserved a rental car in Japan. And we paid money to Japanese agency.
But when we went to a Hertz office, an officer said
“All cars were sold out. But you have two choices.
The other type car in this office or your reserved same type's car in the other office, which takes 5 minutes by cab by yourselves”Oahu island map
When we talked with her, it was difficult to understand her suggestion in English.
Though we decided to go to the Hearts other office and we got on a cab. We sent a card, which was written a hotel’s name and address, was circled it by her, to a driver.
But we felt strange after 10 minutes, our cab was on highway.
My husband asked the driver “How long will it take?
The driver answered ‘”It is 45 minutes.”
Really??? We were very confused about it.
We heard 5 minutes!!!
And we have carried Marriott hotel in Kapolei……
We paid $100 to the driver!!
After we got off the cab, we went to a Hertz desk in Marriott hotel which was very gorgeous in Kapolei.
We explained about the story to an officer who was very cool guy like reggae. But he didn’t know about our situation.
We told him to call a Hertz desk in Hilton hotel. While he talked with her in Hilton hotel, he was laughing. Hahahahaha…..
After calling, he explained about our situation. She should have circled the other Marriott hotel, which took 5 minutes from Hilton hotel. But she took mistake to circle.
Circled of hotel address card
The poor Japanese came to the other Marriot hotel in Kapoiei!!!
Oh my god!!.
And we have to wait her who carried our car to Marriot hotel in Kapoiei.
I asked him “How long will she take by car in this hotel?”
He answered “It is only 25 monuts.”
You are kidding!! Hahahahah
Fortunately, this hotel was near a beautiful beach. Our children ware really into this beach. We didn’t feel tired to wait her. And she was honest and she adimitted she was falt. Part of money will be back to my husuband credit card. (Maybe)
Finally, I thought if I could understand English more, we didn’t experience this adventure.
Ater that, I thought I had to study English very hard. My English was really different of native English speaker. I have difficulty conversation to native English speaker.
You don't think this story is stupid . So I was a little depressed.
Anyway we enjoyed this adventure....
