Things that are pissing you off. - Page 2259

post #33871 of 65858
I went to a wedding several years ago with no booze and no dancing. The "main entertainment" was a string quartet playing in the background during an absurdly long slideshow of the couple. They didn't even stop by to say hi to our table facepalm.gif


I've got two weddings to go to this summer and neither are on Saturday. One is Sunday, ok, fine, cheaper than Saturday and at least I don't have to miss work if I don't work to. The other one is on Friday. wtf, a Friday wedding? Even if you're local you'd have to miss work. Craziness.

I'd prefer Friday evening over Sunday as I'd rather miss a half day at work to party it up on Friday than miss a half day at work on Monday due to nursing a wicked hangover.

I'd prefer Friday because I'd still have my weekend to myself.

I got married on a Thursday night shog[1].gif

We got the venue we wanted with only 4 or 5 months notice, easy after-party at a cool club, etc... most people loved having an excuse to take off work early

there was no open bar, but no one was discouraged from bringing their own. most of my friends brought bottles, and there was plenty to go around.

did not marry muslim, lol.

there was literally hours of awesome dancing. great band too.

Is it a common thing to be closed on Mondays? My hobby shop was closed (I whittle) and my favorite bbq joint too. Inexcusable.

mine was full of booze. And Salon Champagne. And Ramonet Chassagne Montrachet white burg. And Ornellaia Le Volte for red. And Wiemer riesling splits as party favors (NOBODY forgot theirs).

And it was on a Saturday

After a week of banging my head against a brick wall with area managers and arranging for the staff to buy my brother a new pair of glasses. And after buying the new pair I get a call from a staffer saying that " we found the missing glasses case" were the glasses in there? "no" So why should I know this?cloud.gif

I get a phone call from the house manger expressing profound sorrow about what happened and how the staff member who shaved him will not touch him again. That's a win, makes me happy.

Then she comes out with " you know the house is under going renovations" no " well we found the other two pairs of glasses in a filing cabinet" WTF is going on here!

I tell her that she was working the day he flew down to visit and she let him come wearing broken glasses which were covered in filth and that when we spoke she told me she did not know where his glasses were. Silence.

Then change of topic, she informs me there was an incident on the plane when he flew back, he would not sit down prior to take off,WTF this was 10 days ago why wasn't I informed then. "Oh well the cabin crew were able to get him settled but it took some time and they staff didn't want to bother you"

I have to ask what type of idiot do they employ in these places and this from the house manager? ffffuuuu.gif

it does make sense, but fit is very complicated. if you want successful bespoke you need continuity with a tailor until he gets down your style, and what you like. maybe you didnt even know to address some of the issues you are having, when you were fitted?

its possible the dude is no good, but thats not the automatic conclusion. bespoke takes time.
