Oh, that is just the worst!  Feeling insulted and angry and frustrated with
not a single thing you can do agout it because everythig worked it all out
for you so nicely.  /lol/

Ah, well, you'll get them all trained sooner or later.  I hear this new
technique called, oh, what is it?  Operant conditioning training?  Have you
heard anything about that?  Teehee.

Have fun!

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.
