    A few months ago, my Aunt, a fellow DVCer, called me in a panic because she couldn't use her points for a last minute trip to YC/BC. Something about not being able to use reservations points within 30 or 60 days of the end of her use year - I know about this restriction but I forget about the exact terms. She had already purchased her plane tickets and was just past the DVC deadline by a day or so.

    Anyways, she called me to see if I could make the ressies for her (since I have a different use year) and she would make a future ressie for me (or transfer the points.) I was extremely busy that day so I gave her my member # and told her to just "be me" ;) and make the ressies herself and just let me know the details later.

    She calls me a few hours later with a funny story. As she was talking to this guy from MS (as me), he tells her that he remembers helping her before and that her name and voice are so familiar and that maybe he knows her (me)! :rolleyes: Did she ever live in FLorida? :eek: Since I did go to school in Miami, my Aunt was put on the spot. She was afriad that he really did know me and that she would get caught. She asked where in Florida and he replied Gainsville or Tallahasese. With relief she said nope, never been there!

    As we laughed about it later, she realized that when I lived in Florida, I wasn't married yet and my DVC membership is under my married name. I suggested that maybe he was trying to pick her up to which my Aunt replied, "yeah, real smart when I'm traveling with 5 kids!!" So, maybe there is a "Grace" somewhere in Florida with my married last name and my Aunt's voice!! :p :p

    Well, the story doesn't end there... :eek: I just called MS to check my points balance and the guy tells me that it's funny but of ALL the DVC members out there, he's gotten ME on the phone the most! :eek: Don't I have an Aunt, last name of ___, who is also a DVC member? (Ressie was made on my points but placed in her name) I told him "yes, you have a great memory and that maybe it is fate!" :rolleyes: :p ;) Then I got off the phone as soon as possible and called my Aunt to confirm that it was the same person - "GARTH!!!":eek: :jester:

    Well, my Aunt and I thought that it was hillarious coincidence!! :jester: :bounce: :bounce:

    I've been wondering what Mr. Brooks has been up to since he retired. Picking up ladies by posing as a DVC CM. ;)
