I’m a little miffed right now. Why? Well, I have training tomorrow. Seems like it’s going to be a pretty good training. However, I only agreed to attend the training, which is in LaJolla, CA, btw (about a 90 minute drive) because the flyer stated that food & lodging were included.
“Sure,” I thought, “A night away from home & time away from my kids. I’ll do it!”
Well, as it turns out, it’s not so simple. Just to be on the safe side, I call ahead just to make sure the room is reserved in my room. I got quite a surprise when the contact person told me that there were no rooms blocked off for guests. I told her that the flyer said that food & lodging were included.
She says, ” I know that’s what it said, but it’s lodging for the day, not overnight.”
She was not very good at expressing herself. Maybe she was flustered. I tried to understand how lodging for the day means lodging included. That’s not lodging!!! That type of “lodging” simply reserves a spot for my behind in a chair.
So, now I have to leave out the house by 6:30 or 7:00 tomorrow when I thought I was going to be refreshed after a free night’s hotel stay. AWAY. FROM. MY.KIDS!!!!
While I’ll do what I gotta’ do. I’m just saying that if I knew that lodging wasn’t included, I would not have volunteered for this training. So, let me turn in. I’ve got a long drive ahead of me tomorrow. Bye for now!
