Las Vegas, Baby!

I'm having fun. I am not winning my retirement, which was plan A. Oh, well. I just looked at a calendar and I fly back to Mom's tomorrow. Time flys, I guess. I could have sworn I had at least 3 more days here.

I am slowly getting my US legs back under me. Phone plans changed to Consumer Cellular, and data working on my non-US generic smart phone. Their customer service is totally AWESOME. US based, and they speak real English in real terms. I am not being paid to say this, either!

I'm paying to use the Business Center here for internet. This is one strike against Harrahs here. I guess I expected Las Vegas to be the top of the heap of the properties. I've visited Harahs in North Carolina, Kentucky, St. Louis and Kansas City, and they all are more, I don't know, vibrant? Customer oriented. However, I have a nice room, and it is free, so I shouldn't complain. I do find the front desk folks short verbally and with little patience, and a server actually got beligerant with me last night, and I don't even drink? I asked for a water. I wasn't in her 'station' and she didn't want to give it to me. A water. She didn't get a tip when she did bring me coffee later when I was in her sacred station. But, I'm not bitter...

More when I'm not watching the money meter dwindle while I type.


  1. And here I thought that you were going to win a million or so. I am so disappointed, aren't you?

  2. Shame that with their reputation Harrah's does not have customer oriented employees.

    Two thumbs down on having to pay for internet service.

    All in all it seems you have enjoyed yourself and you deserve it!

    Vegas is always exciting for a while but the glitter wears off quickly for me.
