    Am I Saying Something Wrong Here?

    Hi BabyRN I saw your post and thought how rude the hotel sounds and I know which one your talking about as I've stayed in one of them In London. From my experience staff should be polite to all who visit or call via phones. If they are sarcastic you could always ask your hubby to make a formal complaint to the manager about their telephone manner as it seems that they dont care about giving a good impression. Im british myself and hate rudesness expecially when your paying alot for the room. You seem to be saying it correctly that is how we ask to be connected to rooms. If it continues do ask your hubby to make a complaint as it may need highlighting that some members of staff need to be more professional on the phone. I worked as a Telephone Admin ffor a local council which makes me a stickler for good communications on the phone. When you ring you could always ask for their name if it keeps happening as it can be pointed our who is speaking in such a poor manner. I used to do the ol Good morning/afternoon/Eve workplace name Your speaking to Louise How may I help. I always said Sir or Madam over the phone too. Im a student nurse and still use that way even if I meet someone just wanting directions it is always Sir or Madam. Hope this helps Louise aka Lou xx

    Have you a secret?

    Laughs ive a few but i'll share those i'm willing to, most people presume me as a miss goody two shoes but those who know me well and thats a very few have seen i can be a bit of a nutter. My brothers girlfreind still gets suprised by my blunt manner of crude speaking doesnt happen very often but when i annoyed i can be rather shall we say *****. Lou

    If you had one more day to spend with someone who is gone...Who would it be?

    Im crying so much ive lost many but it's a toss uo between 4 people My father he died in april 2000 Pulmonary Embolism (sp?) through cancer treatment it had been a 6 month battle and he died the next day after returning from his last holiday with us. I nmiss him incredably as he was wonderful. I long to hug him and say thank you for believing in me and that i love him very much. We'd go fishing at walton as it was what we did as a family and i'd get him to eat his favourite meal which was mincemeat mashed tatoes and peas. I miss his wisdom and his voice as even though he wasnt hugely affectionate he always had a twinkle in his eye when we kids gave him a peck on the cheek or a hug. 2nd choice would be my grandfather i cant remember much about the time he died as i was in a state of shock for about 6 months all i remember is it was 1st of october and i was in year 4 at primary school. He was ill with 2 forms of leukemia. Id get him to smoke his favourite pipe and eat after eight mints in his favourite chair while talking of anything we can or go to the park for a walk with our dogs as he had a cavelier again. 3rd choice would be my aunt gina (fathers sister) she battled a year long against non hodkins lymphoma, Id chat about funny things and ytell her what we have been upto since she passed she had a wonderful humour and loved us kids as if we were her own and go to the disney store as she always brought us mickey and minnie mouse stuff because we were huge fans of them. My 4th this is a little known fact about me but I had a twin sister called julia she passed a few minutes after birth. I would chat to her and show her pictures of the family she never met. My mother says my middle brother was a spitting image of her. I always knew id had a twin even as a tot as i missed her iim not sure if that is easily explained part of me felt missing for a very very long time. I would share clothes and get my mum and brothers to hug her as I know my mom felt very guilty for a long time. Lou x

    SURVIVOR! What are you proud of SURVIVING?

    Ive been through so many things to name and survived but i'll put those that mean alot to me now. *loosing my hearing at 4 years old now i have machanical hearings aids LOVE them so much id be lost without them, *loosing the ability to walk from 5 years old to finally getting out of a wheelchair and walking BIG achievement as i'm now walking normally after years of physio * being told i'd never complete high school or get to University. (Dr told my parents this after i lost my hearing and got a disability called ataxia) I completed high school with great GCSE grades and im now going to University in 10 days wohoo. *My gcses as my dad died a week before my first exam. * 3 years of trying to get onto my nursing diploma course. I felt like giving up but i kept at it. Those are the most important things to me right now hehe Lou x:monkeydance:
