I won a trip!
I know right? High five, triple sow cow, round house, cart wheel, slap your face dismount!
A freakin’ trip.
Oh… well, I thought I did.
And then the sloot of a Customer Service Rep from the Discount Travel Company that will remain nameless because they are Discount and people use them for Travel told me that I had to pay money to win this trip.
Winning = free.
Telling someone that they won; that they will be going to on a trip to Disney and the Bahamas and then YANKING that away from them is rude!
I am angry at this CSR liar.
But I am mostly angry with myself.
When he called I was just home from work, rushing to start dinner, and the long distance number intrigued me.
I know better.
His promise of a trip took my breath away and I let the thought of actually winning, actually going to the Happiest Place on Earth, sway my judgement for a second.
I should have known better than to believe I was going to Disney, staying in the best hotel, being driven to VIP seating at all the best rides. I feel stupid for getting excited about jetting from Disney to a Bahamas cruise, live shows, and living the life. OH but if that’s not enough I let him tell me about how many more trips I could go on if I register now.
If I register for what?
He told me that I won the opportunity to purchase this trip for $399 per person.
He assured me that I was getting the best deal they had but I had to give him my credit card number today to seal it.
That’s when I threatened Mr. Liar Pants with the first throat punch.
I might have also told him that he was a con artist and the whole room was full of them.
I then might have spoke to his manager and told him the same thing.
Then I might have dropped another dirty throat punch.
