The Slice

This date in Slice history (1997)

There's nothing quite so entertaining as a know-it-all from out of town.

Spokane's Corliss Lovstad came across a classic example just recently.

"I was sitting in the Denver airport last week, waiting to board a plane back to Spokane," she wrote. "I overheard a conversation among three men who were waiting for the same plane. They were traveling to a conference at the Coeur d'Alene Resort and were trying to figure out how long it would take to get there from the Spokane airport. One thought it was about 40 minutes, another thought it could be as long as two hours. A young woman, also waiting for our plane and planning to attend the same conference, chimed in knowingly: 'It depends on whether you're going to Coeur d'Alene the city or Coeur d'Alene the resort. The resort is actually in Spokane.'"

Said Lovstad: "It was a good thing she wasn't driving the resort shuttle."
