Helllooo all! It’s been awhile since I have been on. My apologies. I had a horrible last couple of months and spent my time venting a bit on facebook about poor drivers and playing a combination of mafia wars and cafe world. Everyone needs a break from time to time and that was mine. Hope I am still welcome as a member and moderator. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season ( I did not and would prefer to leave it at that).
So, I had the pleasure of going to CSR resorts last week for work. We arrived on Wednesday 1/6 and left Friday 1/8. Not a lot of time ,but free trip, so who cares?
I don’t have any pictures, so I will give you a daily summary and some thoughts on the resort at the end.
Frist want to apologize o both llama and ddoll who I was suppose to try and meet up with. My only free night was at Epcot where I got stuck playing tour guide to my boss and my team. Never got a single second to myself to escape. I was on heavy watch…lol They may have even had a tracking device on me…:laugh: Every time I snuck out of a meeting to use the bathroom or just walk a second, a boss of some sort followed…it was kinda creepy actually.:laugh:
The company I work for, Advance Auto parts, has a General Manager’s conference every year and this year chose to go to WDW much to my delight. We took over (seriously took over) the entire CSR resort starting on Sunday 1/3. We have three areas (areas 3 - 5) that attended this and they had to break us up into three seperate conferences as there are over 2 thousand of us in each area. I am in area five and went to the final conference (yeah me).
Day one 1/6 travel day:
My flight was leaving out of philly airport at 11:20am. My roomie and I decided to go to the airport early to avoid the rush hour traffic going into philly which would have caused me major road rage as I am always the driver when it comes to going into the city. I arrived at my DBF’s house at 6:30am and he drove us to he airport and dropped us curb-side so I didn’t have to pay to park. We ended up checking out luggage so we didn’t have to carry it around the airport and $25 later, I was bag free. RIDICULOUS price for one single bag…stupid US air. Yes, I flew US Airways and most of you know I loathe them. I hd no choice as to which airline I flew as the company paid for this.
Once we checked in and went through the security (very efficient this time), we found a place to eat and met up with a few other GMs who were also super early for our 11:20 flight. We waited what felt like forever and took off exactly on time which is amazing for US airways. I can’t remember a time where I took off when I was suppose to with them. The flight was uneventful and I sat next to a brand new District manager I have only met once. He is a VERY big (not fat, big) man…so not much room…lolol The landing was VERY bumpy and a woman let out a scream that only a woman could do…high-pitched and quite annoying. Being Dana, I turned to this brand new manly DM and said “why did you scream like that?”…puzzled he said “that wasn’t me”…laughing I said “I am going to make sure I tell every single person on this plane it was”…shocked he said “you wouldn’t”…grinning I stuck out my hand and said “you haven’t met me have you…my name is Dana from Jersey”…I then proceeded to tell each and every person on the plane that Keith screams like a girl. LOLOL!!!
