Photo-A-Day 612 121106

I admit, this is a lame photo. I’ve been to many Courtyard Marriotts in my travels and many times they have had the same set of photos and decorations. I can imagine in about 50 years there are going to be pictures of laptops and iPods as hotel decorations.

I bought us a new vacuum today. It is a Dyson DC17 Absolute Animal. Well when I ordered it I placed the order and it went right through and never asked me for the credit card information. I checked to see why and realized that Amazon had an old credit card that I canceled. So I tried calling Amazon’s help center. Big Mistake. If you think my airport rants are crazy then put me on the phone with someone who has no clue. I was on hold for about 5 minutes then I was on the line with the customer service rep for about 20 minutes and she was absolutely no help whatsoever. So once I got off the phone I canceled the order and reordered the vacuum. That took 1 1/2 minutes. Then I got a customer satisfaction survey from Amazon. Well they got a satisfaction survey from me.
