Going to be in Paris on 11/29/14? Free tickets.

My husband and I were going to Paris and Dublin to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary in Nov/Dec, however due to an unexpected and sudden medical situation we had to reschedule the trip for March. I bought 4 tickets to see How to Become Parisian in One Hour with Olivier Giraud. It's a comedy show (in English) on 11/29 at 7 pm at the Theatre Des Nouveates. You can google him or You Tube the name to see what the show is about.

It breaks my heart but I am unable to use the tickets, have no one in Paris who can use them and travel insurance will not cover the cost. I thought perhaps someone on this forum might like them. They're etickets so I can just email them to you. I know it sounds crazy but consider it a pay it forward kind of gesture. These are the best seats and the tickets cost me $165. I expect nothing in return other than one day you pay it forward also.

And for the record, I have been on the forum for years. You can search my user name. You will see I am honest and trustworthy. I wouldn't want any one to think this is a scam.

So give me your best story on why I should give them to you and they'll be yours. I'll check back in a day or two for responses.

Safe travels everyone!

If you have not given them away, my son's dear girlfriend is studying in Paris and I am sure would be thrilled to do something without significant expense! Please let me know!

My best story:

My oldest friend works nights at a call center and although the work is hard and she is in poor health, she really enjoys the people she works with. She tells me that they are a down to earth group of hard working folks who are just trying to make a few extra bucks.

This afternoon she told me about one of her co-workers who is taking his mother to Paris for Thanksgiving.

I know that my friend would be so happy to be the instrument of bringing something special to one of the people she works with, and I would be thrilled to participate in the effort.

There are just two going to Paris: the young man that works at the call center and his mother.

If you think we're worthy of two of the tickets, you can email me at elvis mom 2 0 0 2 at yahoo dot com

Thanks for the opportunity to do something nice.

Four tickets, so it seems like the man and his mom AND cdwinell's son's girlfriend could all enjoy this wonderful treat. (If cdwinell withdrew because the others seemed so worthy, I mean. If cdwinell withdrew for other reasons, never mind.)
