Sometimes you come across some cheap-ass bastards. I did yesterday.
We had this 18 person meeting. U-shape for 18 with a LCD projector, screen and flipchart. Just before lunch the group contact speaks to one of my housemen that was refreshing the room...she wanted a second flipchart.
Ok, great. She even told him to wait until they broke for lunch, then bring it into the room. Jose did just as he was asked.
At around 5:30pm when the meeting was finished, I approached the lady in charge and presented her with the banquet check. She said it was all ok but wouldn't sign it because we charged her for 2 flipcharts.
"My houseman said that you had requested a second flipchart just before lunch" I said. "Isn't that right" I added. "Well yes", she answered, "But he didn't say that we would be charged for it". "So I need it taken off the bill before I sign" came next.
Do you believe this shit?
