Catman I tried that with my cable Co. and they told me 198.00 per month was all they could do so I switched to direct tv and now I pay 55.00 for the same package exept now it is almost all HD. But on top of the 55.00 I sill had to keep high speed internet and that runs me 59.00 wich was part of the 198.00.

One month after I dropped the cable they sent me a letter saying that I could have all my services back ( cable, phone, and internet)for 112.00 per month. Now thats a bunch of crap!

SpringheelJack Oh yeah, complain the living hell out of them. I have a few friends who work in the hotel industry, and the one thing they always tell me is to complain if something sucks. Most (good) hotels will try to make nicey-nice and that means free stuff.

Oh, also, tell your cable company you're going to switch services, they'll drop their prices, sometimes drastically. Squeaky wheels really do get the grease.

It felt like when you walk into a bank in work clothes and they don't have time for you. But go in dressed up and they can't do enough to help. I guess I'm just sick of poor service with high prices.
It sucks that you get attitude based on how you're dressed, but it's true. From what I've read on that site, blasting the top staff with that usually gets the problem fixed very quickly. I've never had any issues with hotels or anything, but I typically have my board in a bag.

The hotel was in Boone NC. And I have the names of the girls and the G.M. so I think the next letter will be higher up.

Stuff like this just pisses me off.
Hotels are a service industry. You got bad service, you're there all the time, they want you to keep coming back, they'll make it all better for you.

Zee You should have left a steamer in the tub...

But seriously, there is a part of the population that seems to think all snowboarders are running around setting off fire extinguishers etc.

snaplok Can't sweat the small stuff like that. I do think it was more in the lines of guys being in the room than snowboarders. Just get the names of the people who spoke to you and take it up with their bosses, and their bosses bosses if need be.

Reede It doesn't look to me like it has anything to do with the fact you were snowboarders, sounds to me like it has everything to do with the fact you are a group of young men and people just assumed it was you making the noise.

I don't see where snowboarding even comes into it.
