With whipped cream & a cherry on top…

Yesterday morning we got into a cab (Pete was attending a conference next to my office so I hitched a ride) and the cab driver said “So ya getcha miles?” I find this funny for many reasons…

  1. It was the day he becomes an Executive Platinum card holder or in the words of the cabby “getcha miles” day.
  2. Pete takes a cab home from work so often (well every day) that he is on a first name basis with many London cabbies.
  3. This guy remembered! Not only did he remember but he knew just how much this meant to Pete.
  4. Pete tried to play it off like I’m the only that benefits from his miles (which I do) but the reality is he won’t book his travel with miles because then he doesn’t earn miles/points.

I find this all very funny. I am thankful these miles; I’ve flown home twice this year with miles & will most likely buy my ticket home for Christmas will miles.
