Excuse me one moment....
Um. Hang on.....
That's a little better.
So... last week I called my TA to make final payment and she says she's sending a new spreadsheet. Totally wrong. Wrong room types. Wrong travel dates. Wrong names. Wrong just about every f-ing thing!!!!
So we worked on it. In the last two weeks I have gotten (no joke) 11different iterations of this stupid spreadsheet - three of them in the last 24 hours. And... somewhere in there she changes the rates on MY room. They went up almost 200 per night!! She says that she'd booked the wrong room type and they got it sorted and the rate now reflects the right room type. I chewed her up one side and down the other. I actually called her irresponsible, incompetent and deceitful. Not all in the same sentence, mind you, but nevertheless. She blames the whole thing on a communication problem between the wholesaler and the hotel. And when I told her that a good travel agent would have stepped in and sorted all of this out on their own without me having to deal with it all she says... well, the wholesaler... or well, the hotel.
But it's all sorted now. And two weeks later we've made final payment. And I'm only going to walk out of my office and kill 3 people instead of the original 17 I'd planned on.
I'm feeling much better, thanks!
In other news...
I picked up my wedding dress yesterday. I took it home on the train with me. Fun story. When I got on the train, I hung it up and the woman sitting behind asked if it was my wedding dress and we chatted for a minute. A few minutes later a man walked by and asked if he could have the seat. Before I could even respond the woman behind me says "are you f*ing blind? Can't you see that's her wedding dress? find another seat!" Hysterical!!!
oooh and we pick up our wedding bands tonight.
Ahhh... checklist is getting shorter.
