Grumble grumble...  
The knee. I don't know what I did... actually I think I do, I just don't understand why it made it hurt. I was cleaning the shower... kneeling and scrubbing and now... pain. It hurts like it did when I tore the tendons in highschool. I hope that isn't what I did. I don't see how it could be.

Las Vegas Trip...

Resort I won it from: "To further promote our lovely establishment and the Time Share you could buy into we are going to make your promotional trip as crappy as possible. Not only will we be flying you out at 9:50pm on Tuesday night, but Thursday morning you'll have to be at the airport at 6:00am (well couple hours before that) for your flight home. This means you won't have quite 24 hours in Las Vegas.... BUT wait... let's go lower... you will not be in a hotel... but a motel that while it isn't a shithole... it also isn't a place you would ever pick to stay in."

"To survive your trip please give us $258."

Okay so they didn't say that but that is what they mean... they just didn't come out at say it. Bastards!

Thanks. I hope the knee is just a nothing thing that I have to get over.

The trip thing sucks but like I told the lady on the phone. Can't afford $258 so I'll stick with the crap you are giving out. So much for winning.

Sounds like things aren't going so well today. *hugs*

Those promotional trip things are often not quite as good as they seem. That's too bad - I was hoping you'd have a lovely time.

I hope your knee is nothing serious and that it feels better soon!

No. Not really.

You know what sucks about that is they present it to you like you won something. I was excited but now it is all promotional. I am seriously going to complain and I'm going to make a huge stink because I'm sick of being pushed around by people.

Me too. I once had a brace that kept it straight and I don't want to go there ever again but if it doesn't feel better soon... docs.

False advertising is an awful thing. Good for you for calling them on it. I hope you get something good out of it.

Aww, sweetie, hope your knee feels better real soon!

Sorry you're having a bad time of it. Promotional crap masquerading as a prize is so wrong! I got suckered when I was in college (You won a trip, just send us $100 dollars) because I'd gotten a credit card and they randomly picked my card number in a drawing I never entered. I, of course, was a stupid 22 year old and verified my full card number over the phone (they only had the last four digits somehow).

Good for you for not getting suckered. FYI, I live in Vegas... you're really not missing much LOL.

Feel better. *HUGS*

You live in Vegas! Cool. Well, there are things there I want to see even still. I wanted to go to Star Trek the Experience but I'm not sure now that we only have a day there.

Oh yeah never give our a credit card unless it is something you actually called to purchase.

Thanks. I'm waiting on the new insurance for work to get the knee checked out.

Yes, it does but we will make the most out of it.
