    I don't drink Corona for the flavor. I drink it to fight scurvy.

    That is who I booked through also. I couldn't even get in while calling, probably12 calls with answer and hang up or waits and hang ups. All the while on my computer trying to chat with someone. Finally the chat thing popped through and I now have a credit for the plane tickets to use the rest of the year and the dude was a champ and got 3 of my 4 nights or a nonrefundable room refunded. Even got charged the 40 reduced rate they are charging today. Now I'm just working on the broadway ticket refund. Final damages will be down to 500 to a grand, pending we fly somewhere this year. I will see if I can sweet talk a delta employee this year and use the credits for the wife's niece's wedding next April.

    Both airlines and the hotel were willing to refund or at least credit us. I like Simon and Garfunkel but listening to Homeward Bound (the first hold song with Expedia) 32 times was rough. Incidentally, the Rick-roll song is about the 4th song they play when you are on hold.

    On the rare occasion I do go in I try to make it right when they open to try to make it as painless as possible.

    I saw something on them about how they just tell a company we will buy xx amount of your product at a unit cost of .yy and it is up to the company to figure out how to get their unit cost down or lose the deal. When people say they bought the exact same thing at Walmart for cheaper they are not getting the exact same thing. Same thing as Black Friday, you aren't getting a $500 TV for $250. You're getting a $250 TV.

    My ACT day got cancelled due to the flood of 2008. I had to drive to Moline to take it and only had one shot at it.

    We're already running a skeleton crew in our office at work and we just had 2 people (our Accounts Receivable person and our Logistics person) quit this week. Not to mention our Head Accountant/HR person is supposed to retire in April and trying to train her replacement in the process.

    Going to be an absolute sh*tshow the next few months considering our busiest time of the year starts in May.

    Fun times ahead :confused:

    We had friends who were supposed to leave for the airport to fly to NYC yesterday at 4am. They were going to go as planned until they talked to the wife’s sister who lives out there (who they were going to go visit) and said it was not good there.

    Yup, next date is June 13th. I guess we’ll just wait and see what happens.

    I don't think that's unusual. I believe Menards does the same.

    I'd vote for Heineken as the most overrated but you make a good point.

    I won the NCAA pool last year put on by the Sheriff's Office in the County where I used to work as a prosecutor (probably safe if you're gambling with the cops). I sent an e-mail this morning declaring that I was the reigning NCAA Pool winner and that everyone should just send me their money this year. Thus far, I've received $0.00.

    Not sure how well I am going to adapt to forced slothdom. While I am an expert in pajama days and embracing my inner sloth it's usually a personal thing between me and sloth. Weather plays a big role. Wednesday was like a 10 on the gloomy sky scale. Strong sloth. Today is like sunny although with wind blow like a 100 mph. Sloth at 50% strength.

    I suppose I could do some home projects but that is sort of a total departure from true slothdom. I am conflicted. Either need sheetrock or a new Kindle book.
