Too late. We have observed it and taken notes. ;)

I know several people who work for hotels, and also know a few people who also own them.

And yet the most basic business concepts still escape you.

Most of the "tricks" you describe sound a lot like car salesman tactics, which are absolutely not new, and very easy to navigate.

Rather than complain about how it's unfair, why not arm yourself with the tools that might help improve your position in the game?

Because there is some notion that that would be immoral.

RCMAC is 102.8% correct.

Sorry for quoting myself, but I have no clue why you guys voted this up. It wasn't even that funny and I regretted posting it.

Because you're so darned specific?

And thanks, Tyler. I would have been perfectly happy to know I was merely 100% correct.

Now this is in my opinion the best post I've seen in a long, long time. It actually elicited an audible chuckle from me.

^^ Me too, or at least the laugh part.
Tyler I thought it was funny because it was another example of your specificity.

And that word is as difficult to spell as it is to say. *laugh*

Agreed ... but only because 102.8% is an unfair percentage. My sister knows a friend of a friend who's a mathematician, and he told me you quoted the additional 2.8% just so Cedar Fair can sponge more money out of us!

Enh. I don't really have a good place to put this, so I figure this is as good a place as any:

I don't think Fastpass is in any way, shape, or form part of this argument but I do think "Megacorp" does have some obligation to the community it is a part of. For both financial (which Megacorp should monitor) and societal (which the govt. should monitor) reasons, I think it's counter productive to have Megacorp squeezing every penny out of its customers and especially its labor force. Corporations have increasing influence on society and if they're "an individual" enough to make campaign contributions, they should also have some kind of moral compass beyond "it's profitable."

Again, Fastpass is not even close to the realm of what I'm talking about. I've just missed all the interesting political sidebars in these topics so I'm starting a new one.

MANY people, including a few here, seem to believe that MegaCorp has but one obligation - to maximize shareholder wealth. I do believe that it should be *a* consideration...but am highly concerned that it has become MegaCorp's overriding, and perhaps only, consideration. This means both employees and customers don't take a back seat...they get dragged behind the bus. (Look out when you hear the back-up beeper).

The better Megacorps do not squeeze every penny out of their customers or their labor force. In terms of a government moral compass, who gets to determine what that is/should be and on what basis? And how is it enforced? Objective things like a minimum wage are easy to enforce. Other "societal goods" are not.

I am known as a very specific perfectionist outside of coasterbuzz, though.

Tyler, just out of curiosity, how old are you? That question is not in response to or intended to disparage any of your posts. I'd just be interested in knowing. Maybe you noted it when you started posting, but I may have missed it.

In my mind, Tyler, you will always be a wise, old, sage who sits at his computer and plays with us all like puppets.

It's okay. Outside of CoasterBuzz, I'm a grammar nazi. I understand the perfectionism thing in at least that regard.

Outside of CoasterBuzz, I mostly drool and drag my knuckles when I walk.
