Gonna offend someone . . .

First, let me offer my completely insincere apology to anyone that I might offend.
 I had my travel agent in MA  rolling on the floor this evening. I had a desperate customer contact me this afternoon. Their entire factory is shut down because they have only one of our instruments, depend upon it, and it has failed. I was supposed to be going home tomorrow morning but apparently that aint gonna happen.
“Hey Betsey, I hate to drop this on you at the last second, but I need you to cancel my flight home and redirect it to another customer.”
“Okay, where are you at?” she asked
“Yeah, I’m in redneck central.”
“Well all righty then, where are you going?” She laughed.
“Hillbilly heaven.” I told her with a straight face/voice.
“OK, really, where are you and where do you need to go?” she asked when she stopped laughing.
“I’m in Knoxville TN and need to go to Huntsville AL.” I told her with my best Army tone.
“Well all right, give me a second.” She said, and then I waited while she looked for our options.
“Say, do you think I can learn how to play banjo tonight before I go?”
It took her a good solid two minutes to stop laughing . . .
