[nagdu] hotels

I just had to write a quick vent before I head out for that training I'm going to.

I work for the county, but this training is being paid for through a grant from a regional prevention agency.  They are paying or reimbursing all expenses, which is how I am able to go.  Throughout the year I attend other events sponsored by this agency.  They all know me and of course Monty.

Here's the rough spot.  They set up the hotel as a direct bill to their agency, which means that I didn't make my own reservation.  You know where this is going.  They told the hotel that I'm blind, have a guide dog, but that I'm very independent and they don't need to worry about me.  AARGH!  just AARGH!

So I've been told that the hotel has no problem with the dog.  Yeah, I was real worried about that.  I have also been put on the first floor, which I don't care one way or another about.  But I am oh so relieved to know that the hotel is okay with me coming! *sarcastic smile*

There's nothing to be done about it really.  I did try to explain to the lady who made the reservation for me that all of that extra info was unnecessary and that I'm pretty well  accustomed to speaking up for myself and my rights.

I hope the next few days are not one long saga like this.
