I'm not naming names online, but if you really need to know who the vendor is....just PM me.
I called a potential venue up and spoke to the Group Sales Coordinator. When I told her that my event is to take place in August 2012....she became immediately short tempered and chastised me for calling "so early", and that "we don't even start thinking about 2012 until November, and if you want early August, we're already booked." WTH? She contradicted herself.
I stated that the event was to be in mid August, so that wouldn't be an issue.
"Well, if you bring in your own caterer, we charge a fee, but if you use our caterer in house, we give you a discount on the rental".
Okay, that sounds fine. We don't have an issue paying an upcharge.
The kicker was:
"Where are you guys from? How big is your event?"
"XXXXX, Nevada....guest list is 300".
"(snickers) Well, you guys are too big for us. Have you called your local park in XXXXX? I wouldn't want locals taking up a booking when they could go elsewhere."
She did NOT say that! That was rude!
End of Rant.

I'm supposed to be falling for myself...and not falling for just any guy out there in the world.....
