Kelowna: city of the easily confused


Valley View

While working at Metrotown today I sold a phone to a woman who just needed to have a 604 number because her boyfriend had recently moved from Kelowna and his friends back in the British Columbia interior wouldn’t be able to deal with having a 778 area code.

“Yeah, people from Kelowna are easily confused,” I agreed.

On the topic of B.C.’s most easily confounded city I’ll be returning there for a few days this week starting Tuesday. I’ve got some freelancing money to beg for and friends to see. Also I’ve been finding Vancouver a little too hot lately so I felt that going to the stupid hot temperature of Kelowna was a way to remind me of how nice it is in Van City.

    Did she really say “confussed”? Did she mean confused?

    She might have, she was talking very fast. Ha ha.

    Anyway thanks for the spelling catch there. I hate blogging at work because I rely heavily on OSX’s built in spell check.
