    Different Booking Experience... at Least for Me

    Admittedly, I have had an extremely slow start to my business and mostly because I just haven't spent the time to work it. About 2 months ago, I changed my mind-set and have been working my business every night when I come home from my desk job and every day of the weekend. I haven't had any...

    After 9 hr of instillation and lots of Crud, we now have DirectTv. IT SUCKS!! Sometimes saving a few bucks is not worth it AT ALL! Does anyone know if there is a "cooling off period" or a loop hole so we don't have to pay the cancellation fee? We honestly didn't think it would so stressful...

    Secure Delivery: Host's Experience with FedEx Delivery Woes

    A recent host received her delivery today. When her husband got home, all the boxes (except one, which will be delivered tomorrow) were on their porch. Nothing was missing, but the host was dismayed that FedEx would just leave them there, unprotected. Anybody in the neighborhood could have...

    My team will NEVER stay at the Hilton again. We suffered though a litany of errors. The worst being billing. When I checked in, one night of my room was supposedly paid for. We were told we had to pay for the second night. It should NOT have been paid for. I knew that my director had the...

    My Loyal Yahoo Classic User Experience: Can't Leave, Won't Leave

    I have been a loyal user of Yahoo Classic for years. The only problem is that when forwarding a TT newsletter, it gives me that pesky blue line.

    I was doing a show today and this is a booking from a show I did in October. She wanted to get the glazed baker this month. When I went to enter it, only the code for the host special came up. Shouldn't there be a past host code too?
