    Anyone who read my post about my TA woes, it has gotten worse. We are now only 12 days away from our departure, and we have not received a single voucher, paper, or anything for our trip. FI's mom's name was spelled wrong on the vouchers, and my mom's best friend was "accidentally" booked a day later than us, and then she had planned... and they made it up to her with giving her the day, and a first class ticket (I am the bride, have not gotten any accomodation for our problems with TA, and at this point, don't really care that we are flying in coach even though said guests have been upgraded to first class, and MOH is flying first class as well. FI is more upset about this whole thing. I don't care, fly me in coach.)

    And now, drumroll.....
    We found our entire trip on the internet, same EXACT package for $2200 cheaper... taxes, transfers, gratuities, everything...

    and I just keep getting more e-mails about frustrations with the TA, and how people think she's rude... and it is not in my personality to be a Beeotch to someone, and not to her... but apparently, if you yell and get mad at her you get first class tickets....

    I sound whiney.... and I am not... but I have been crying at least once a night for the past week trying to deal with all this, driving all over, delivering vouchers to people that were sent to the wrong place... And worst of all I told FI I just want the whole thing to be over with, and wish we could just go to the courthouse and call off the DW.... Our TA has made this hellish.... and I am trying to keep spirits up.... posting happy posts, being positive.... but I am sick of crying and trying to handle everyones travel concerns and problems.... I don't get paid to be a TA!!! I want to throw up....
    And the worst part is, the TA is still giving me attitude, even in the message she left! Ughhhhhhh,,,,

      Sorry for all your troubles! Just keep reminding yourself that in 12 days you will be in paradise with your FI, family and friends. Hopefully you got your bad luck out of the way for the rest of your DW! Good luck! Whenever I get overwhelmed I just keep reminding myself that I am getting married to a great guy and that's all that matters!

        Joanna, I read your earlier posts dealing with this TA. Have you gone to a manager? I really think its time to flip out on her. Seriously, I know it may not be how you would normally act, but trying to be nice to her isn't getting you any where. I'm so mad for you that I'll yell at her if you want! lol Right before you leave is not the time for you to have to deal with this added stress. I'm so sorry. She, by no means, should be giving you attitude. Something has to be done. A manager has to be able to help and have some sympathy for the situation you're in.

          Hi Sweetie! I am so sorry you are having to go through these woes. This sounds like a nightmare. I would say it is time to get firm and a little, how should I say, Biotchy? :) I know it may not be your true self...but since this lady is on your last never not to mention royally screwing up, I think you have to put your foot down and tell her what's up. Normally my philosophy is catching more flies with honey, however, she has way crossed the line and now it is time to get fired up and let her know this is unacceptable! I think you have to tell her waht is up and this is not flying and she needs to do her job and let you be the happy bride you deserve to be! I like the idea of talking to her manager too...but I find it may work to give her heck first.

          Just my two cents, but she needs to know enough is enough.

          And even though you may not want it, if everyone else is getting a free upgrade, you damn well better get one too. :)
          Muah!!! Hugs!

          Hang in there!

            She and the manager at the branch know that there have been many mistakes, and mishaps, and she seems to get aggrevated all the time at guests for getting upset over things (um hello, I would too when many slip ups have happened)... and now my parents are super upset too... They got an AMEX bill with all separate charges all over the place with no explanation of what is for what...and my mom called but the TA was about to leave for the end of the day, so she said she would break it down for my mom tomorrow... and being that there are all little charges that add up to thousands of dollars, and now she said my mom will also get billed on her next credit card statement (no explanation for what each amount is equal to).... so my parents had a huge fight at their house over this too because now TA has charged over 7 charges to their cards and they are trying to add things up and keep track of prices... others have had this same scanario happen as well and are not happy. I just wish we did this at home... I love FI, and the TA situation has been such a stress... like, as soon as we get a moment of happiness about the wedding (two nights ago, making final CDs with music) I get a call about names being spelled wrong on plane tickets from TA, and then a call that someone got booked for the wrong days (and they already put in to get off of work).... I don't want to be upset over this anymore!!! It's like she knows she is F'ing up, and keeps saying don't worry, not a big deal, well this is the reason... blah blah.... but how am I supposed to not worry?? What is our names are spelled wrong? We don't even have our info yet!!! 12 days away!!!

              oh Joanna! I have to agree its time to let this woman know whats up. this NEEDS to be taken care of! You can't have mispelled names, especially travelling internationally! Maybe talk w/ tammy or one of the other ta's on what you can and should do!

                Thanks ladies... Tammy gave me the advice of confronting the TA (which I do appreciate, so thank you) but I have told her multiple times now about the mistakes and people being upset, and these things just continue to happen. The past few days have really put me over the edge, especially my mom's best friend getting booked for the wrong days... (and finding out two weeks prior).... enough is enough... I can't sleep!!!

                  P.S. just wrote FI a letter for when he wakes up telling him how happy I am to marry him, and how sorry I am that everyday I am stressing out over travel...

                    Oh no, this is so awful I don't know a lot about being a TA but I do know that our TA's here are good people who wouldn't let these things happen, so I feel like your TA is not on the ball. Is there anyone else you can complain to? If not I say go against your nature and go off on the TA...at least you should get a first class ticket out of this too! And I agree with a previous poster, this will be water under the bridge once you get there and marry your sweetie...but this whole process sucks so far!

                      Joanna-I am so sorry for all of your troubles sweetie. Just remember she is working for YOU. Don't let her be rude to you! I would raise hell. I hope everything gets better really soon.
