The Cancelled reunion that everyone who didn't pay for but insisted on coming to is fast approaching (July 20-22).
Many of the out of staters had complained re the hotel accomadations I had secured for them...$74.00 for a king sized jacuzzi room was too much. They wanted to sleep on the floor of our overcrowed homes for free.
Well after I was contacted by storm a few weeks ago that most of them were still coming and will bring money and understand that they will still need to secure their hotel rooms by reserving them, I was asked to "try and find a cheaper one".
Okay, I did...$49.00/ night at a Super 8 Motel.
When I called them back to give that information I was asked questions such as:
"Is it in a safe area?"
"Does that mean I can't have a jacuzzi room at that price?
"Does the place have roaches, it's sounds cheap?
"Is this one of those Iranian runned places?
"Is it too late to reserve a room at the other one you got?
I told them I refuse to dicuss it any more and if they were coming to call and reserve their DAMN rooms!
I got a call from the hotel coordinator on July 5th. NOT ONE PERSON HAS CALLED TO RESERVE A ROOM!!!!!!!
I had given her an estimate of 10 rooms and that's why she dropped the cost. If that many don't RESERVE the rooms, it goes back to regular price, $89.99 plus tax.
On top of that, an aunt called and gave me advice on planning the next reunion:
Next time,, don't try to be so much and so fancy. Just find a nice park up there where you don't have to pay to rent it, let folks that want to come buy their own food when they get there and cook what they want to eat (you know not every body can eat all that food ya'll be having)and don't try to force folks to pay for no hotel, folks used to sleeping on floors and if they dont mind, why not let them? I had to hurry up and get off the phone with her before I said some thing GOD wouldn't like. I talked to my mother today to see if anyone had contacted her. She said her phone has been silent from all of them. No one has called me since the other rush of calls and guess what?
I'm not calling them either. I want this so bad but I am not going to do anything else for those ungrateful folks (I love them so much, ha!)
One week to go, we'll see.
Will keep you updated,
PS Please laugh with me so I wont do the other, ahahahahahahahahah
