Today sucks. Let me just get that out there. The weather is appropriate for the news I got today.
I'm normally pretty cool under pressure, but today I lost it. To my knowledge, I didn't swear at the woman. I yelled. I slammed the phone. I cried loudly for five minutes and a co-worked had to come over and rub my back I was shaking so badly. What happened, you ask? Well, after months of
staying on top of the Metro Parks Office, asking questions, asking if they would be so kind as to go ahead and take my money while they insisted they couldn't book us until Oct. 9, 2009 for Oct, 10, 2010 .... I get an email saying that they have ALREADY BOOKED our venue. TO THEMSELVES.
What the hell.
I've been hesitant to mention the fact that we were hoping to book Two Rivers Mansion online. So much for that because they booked it to themselves!!!!
I immediately called the person in charge of reservations (a detail I got a mere week ago after corresponding with them since February). That conversation didn't go well, so I called the guy in charge.
And he said "oh, well that date isn't solid. I'll see if I can get this taken care of for you. I'll try to shuffle it around". They were supposed to call me back in the afternoon.
And of course, they didn't. I called and left a detailed message and followed that with a detailed email. We are both just floored and the lack of eptitude and common courtesy.
Today, I saw *almost* my entire vision for our wedding day evaporate like a puff of smoke. I'm emotionally drained not to mention an emotional wreck, but I'm positive that this will all work out and we'll find another venue.
Now, let the research and phone calls commence. Sigh.
