new post.. you want a new post?

well i'd like to not be the fucking travel agent at work.

if there is one thing i hate doing.... it's booking travel. i hate booking flights for people. know why? because it always changes and i think i'm just way too organized and detail oriented to have such chaos. not to mention that fact that with every change, i'm essentially doing the same job over again- so in the end, i feel like i just did the same thing about 50 times. and that's frustrating. and have i mentioned how time consuming it all is? because for some reason, travel (and all that goes with it) just takes up the whole freaking day (and who has time for that? oh yeah, travel agents). one change is never simply one change. one change usually means a hotel change... which leads to a car change.. and don't forget about a meeting change... and potentially a meal reservation change.. and the color of the sky change.. and i want a puppy change..

booking travel is seriously the one thing i can't stand. and it's the one thing that i can't seem to get away from in any job.

travel- why doth you plagueth me so- eth?

You mean to tell me you did not inherit this talent from your mother??

Don't rip your hair out. It won't look good with your wedding dress.

grrr. I typed my comment and the internet ate it.

I hopped over here from thegoodblogs...

My husband finally bought plane tickets for him and his business partner all by his little bitty self. BUT he failed to notice which Portland airport he clicked. The NIGHT BEFORE he would leave, I noticed his ticket and asked him why he was going to Maine when the factory was in OREGON!

Guess who saved the day?
