Note: The Rules & Guidelines for the Yes Test can be found here.
I'm running into some logistical issues with the Yes Test, primarily around major purchases or life decisions. It's easy enough to say yes to going to a concert or getting an unplanned glass of wine, but when the Delta representative is on the other end of the line, asking you if you want to confirm a flight to Santiago, Chile, you have to resist every instinct in your body that wants you to yell into the phone and say, this is way too much pressure, ms. Skymiles representative. How about we book a nice flight to Wisconson instead? We'll eat some cheese and befriend some cows and turn off the internet and pretend it's 1991. Hell, in 1991 the Soviet Union held an election and had a "none of the above" option, which led to entirely new elections. I'm pretty sure the entire country would like to go back in time and put that on our ballots so we could avoid at least one of our Presidential debacles of the last 26 years. We could go back in time and be those people. It's just you and me, Dipta the Delta lady, just you and me.
So, I stalled. I asked if the same flight deal would be tomorrow, because I wanted to sleep on it. Dipta said yes, it will still be available, and then promptly hung up while I was halfway through my next statement. When I woke up the next morning, I logged onto Delta.com and discovered that Dipta made the change anyway, and now I'm confirmed to fly to Santiago in mid July. Now I can't go back in time and save the world from The Donald. Thanks for nothing, Dipta.
