Aug 18th 2012 9:00AM What do you expect in a hotel that doesn't have a restaurant? I suspect the desk clerk has to prepare the food throughout the night along with their other duties and low wages. Even in great restaurants you can get bad food. Toast the bagel or English muffin, grab some juice, bannana, and hot tea and stop complaining. You can't go wrong with any of those items.
Aug 18th 2012 8:54AM You need to accept the inevitable. Breakfast foods are cheap and don't have a long hold time. Considering there is usually no restaurant on the premises that would allow a chef to cook all morning, its a cook once, serve 4 hours situation. Do you really think a hotel is going to add an extra person to their staff to restock foods every few minutes? How would you feel if the desk clerk was too busy making breakfast to assist with desk duties? You'd complain about that too.
Why don't you look for hotels that have a restaurant on premises? Then you can have fresh, hot food for breakfast.
As a former Bed & Breakfast owner many of my guests would state after a reservation "If I arrive and there are kids, I'm leaving. I'm coming to get away from my kids for the weekend and I don't want to deal with someone elses". Parents tend to let their kids behave in public the same as they behave in home: running, screaming, throwing tantrums. I took kids for 6 months at the B&B and quit after a family let their kids take over the house with no consideration for other guests. The next 12 years at the B&B was much more pleasant with just couples. By law there cannot be a discrimiation, but my rule was: the rooms only sleep two people. If they are old enough for their own room they can come.
Stick to hotels with restaurants and stop complaining about the food. You'd complain if there wasn't food. Next time you get hard pancakes, throw them in the trash, get something else and buck it up. Or pack your own breakfast if you don't want to eat out.
Jun 21st 2011 5:32PM Courtney, Teens need to earn their respect from adults, not demand it. The problem with you teens is that you DEMAND everything. Yes, you are dumber than the teacher and adults that are older than you. The teacher has many years of study and experience over you - that's why you are the student and they are the teachers. Adults should demand more respect from you teens instead of placating your whims and spoiled wants.
Jun 21st 2011 5:27PM You are SO right. When will a grass roots revolt take hold against the court systems to stand up for the rights of parents to discipline their children as they see fit? I had lots of welts on my legs from switches as a child. No harm done, and I learned to respect my parents. As an employer I am up against young adults who think they can get away with anything and pretend they don't hear because they were "talked to" by parents and not spanked as toddlers when a "talking to" doesn't help? If a kid can't talk, how do they understand what the parents are trying to reason with them about? Spanking is not acceptable past the age of 10, but before then, a few whacks on the backside of the glutious maximus doesn't hurt a darn thing. The Bible states repeatedly that an undisiplined child is trouble.
Nov 20th 2010 7:39AM Remember that most designers are men and have absolutely no idea what works or doesn't. They are artists - not pragmatic reslists. Besides, their entire collections are designed for women with no hips or curves and a size 2 - when most women are size 12-14.
One of the things I hate is the low cut necklines. They look great on runway models who have nothing to show and can wear a blouse cut to their waist. But most women are size 36B and above and low cut necklines mean they are falling out of their clothes, and need pins to keep their necklines from gapping open. It is not sexy or professional to show everything about the human body - this from men friends of all ages who I've asked - they are tired of women showing everything, leaving nothing to the imagination and removing the mystic of being female.
Nov 20th 2010 7:32AM Are you sure you look just fine wearing socks with a skirt, or do you "THINK" you look great.
Socks with skirts are only OK for kids not old enough to wear hose, or for leisure wear. They are not OK for professional wear or special occasions.
Nov 19th 2010 5:29PM This Not for anyone over 21 or outside the fashion industry.
Most of the time runway styles only belong on the runway for that shock factor. The average American women looks stupid in trendy stuff.
Nov 13th 2010 10:54PM What moran came up with this idea? I have an IQ of 126 - that's not stupid, and I am a morning person.
Nov 1st 2010 10:47AM thegr8888est: To a 7 year old kid, this is not meaningless. It means he is being excluded from his class and his friends.
Oct 25th 2010 4:06PM Get over it. He's over 18. So is the woman he supposedly texted. They're adults. If he wasn't harrassing her, then it's a non-issue. Guys do dumb stuff like that. If he raped her that is another issue. But if all he did was text and photos, geez...... grow up.
And I'm female.
