I’m sorry, but I couldn’t resist (Part 1)

Here’s a transcript of a live chat I had moments ago with a very polite staffer at ArizonaGuide.com, an online guide presented by the Arizona Office of Tourism.

[AG] Hi, I’m [handle withheld]. How may I help you?

[Visitor] Sorry to bother you, but I’m wondering if there’s any information on your site about this new senate bill.

[AG] We are currently working on this.

[AG] For more information on this subject you can contact Kiva Couchon (pronounced “coo shawn”) her contact information is kcouchon@azot.gov or 602-364-3724.

[Visitor] Much obliged. Not to put you on the spot, but it seems like something people ought to know about before they plan a trip to Arizona.

[AG] It’s not offically a new law yet.

[Visitor] Do you happen to know when it would become law?

[AG] If you contact Kiva she will better be able to answer your quesitons.

[Visitor] Will do. Thanks for your time.

[AG] You’re welcome

[AG] Thank you for contacting the Arizona Office of Tourism. Have a nice day.

[Visitor] You too.

    Ah, so it wasn’t just me, then! I believe they’re giving everyone the same answer, which makes a lot of sense.

    Personally, I was careful not to be too difficult with the staffer – I spoke to the same one as you – because she obviously didn’t have any say in the bill itself. It would have been like yelling at a customer service rep because my cable went out.

    Plus, and I don’t want to make assumptions, but it’s entirely possible that a woman in Arizona named Maria stands to be personally disadvantaged by the new law.
