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.

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.

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!
