It was a very long weekend in Bakersfield, but it was a lot of fun.
Originally I had a room for $80 a night down in Bakersfield, but when I got a ride there as hubs couldn't make it, I switched to a $180 room at a different hotel. Needless to say our budget was GONE. But I didn't want to have my driver drive me 3 miles to another hotel both nights so it was a sacrifice. There were absolutely no available food service around the hotel so we ate room service. On Sunday we ate nothing until 8 pm after we got home. I was just out of money until next week.
But we had fun!
The kids, as usual, worked very hard. There were so many injuries at this Cali Finale. At one point Nikki's coach came running across the stage when it was our team's turn to perform and the owner came out to hold up our spot. One of the flyers had snapped her ankle. It was scary not knowing what was going on.
After they got her squared away the girls came out. And took 1st place :o)
After another 5 hour ride home and a busy Monday catching up on homework and Spark, I find this email in my box from the owner, John.
"I just received an email from Tammy showing me what you said asking about Medals and Ribbons... YOU PAID $0.00 for any registration fees for this competition... Your daughter got to enter for FREE....
The chain of command is to talk to your coach
Then talk to me
AT NO POINT do you ever address an event producer... This is embarrassing beyond belief right now....
If you plan on coming back,I expect you to email Tammy personally and apologize...
Now I already know what you are asking: "What did YOU say??" and you know what? I'm not going to tell you that, yet. Because here's where I'M coming from. 1) Why is he automatically assuming it's me? It's my FB page, yes, but as everyone in the Social Media World knows if you leave your page on your phone, your computer, or anywhere...it's accessible to anyone! 2) Why wouldn't HE follow the chain of command and ASK me what happened and 3) why is he BULLYING (yes, I'm using that word) my daughter as punishment? Didn't we outlaw people punishing the innocent for their own benefit with Hitler?
Absolutely stumped at the moment. There was nothing I said or allegedly said that should have warranted that email. When I explained to Nikki what happened she looked at me sand said "you tell him fine, I won't come back and we will take our money to California Fame" I kissed her on the forehead. No one bullies anyone I love. Especially when I pay THEM.
Now...knowing what you know. I'll tell you what was posted: "No medals? Only ribbons? I'm in the wrong busine$$!"
Your thoughts? Perhaps this person should have added an LOL to that mischievousness comment
