The shit is totally hitting the fan here. There's a Partner Offsite Retreat in DC in March, which is a pain in the butt because the Partners are supposed to fly coach and they don't want to and not everybody is going to get upgraded, so we have admins saying, which flights can they get upgraded on and we don't know. Even if the airline has upgrade seats one minute, they can be gone by the time we ticket and call in for upgrade.
Also, the airlines don't want to upgrade people. They want to sell business and first for thousands of dollars at the same time they're trying to get people into the cattle car by selling transcon tickets for under $300.00.
All day I've been dealing with this. Even Steven who is generally pretty mellow is frothing at the mouth over the effrontery and entitlement of these people.
I went to the gym this morning and did 1/2 an hour on the treadmill, which is good, but contributing to the exhaustion because I've been up since 6:00AM
On the plus side, the Hay Adams came in yesterday and brought us inauguration chocolate and a presidential "Fandex" which was pretty cool.
On the minus-IPOD PROBLEMS. It won't synch. I took it to the store yesterday along with my laptop and they said I had to make an appointment with a "genius" but none was available until 8:30PM. So I'm supposed to see someone tomorrow at 6:45PM
No, the food is not under control right now.
No, I'm not happy about it.
No, apparently I'm not ready to deal with it yet, either.
SO. FUCKING. TIRED.
