    She has always said they received perks but not as heavily discounted as the CM's in the park. A couple times a year she receives a few passes and saves them up for a trip. When I was going she said they were not going this summer because of the prices of the rooms and dining plan. I'll have to tell DH to update her, she will be thrilled that TDS is matching the discounts of park CM's. Good News!
    Wow!
    Yea, I can't believe she isn't already updated on all of this?!?! All the phone calls and everything they have been given my PRNR and everything and have verified EXACTLY where I work and all is well. Get her up-to-date...STAT!
    I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

    Like I said in the past TDS here are kinda nasty. Would not surprise me that the communication is as bad as the stores are. My son was in Canada and was so impressed with their interactive store.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    We seem to be OK here.
    We are actually the stage set model store (we get to take LOTS of pictures that then have to be downloaded to be distributed to all the others) for all the pink and greens in the nation.

    I have yet to get to an IP store. I hear they are kinda' neat, but a lot of folks that have been to the ones in San Antonio, Dallas and Houston areas say they kinda' prefer the old pink and green stores like ours.
    But, as I stated, I have yet to get to one myself.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    Interesting. Two plastic tickets came here a few weeks ago, like the size of a gift card. Mine that I used were not printed. ID is swiped and then a hard one day paper ticket came out of turnstile. That worked for 6 days. I believe for six months it is 6, six day tickets. Plus the hard cards that were mailed here that were one day. Bonuses were monthly and quarterly.

We actually went into the service office. They spoke to my DD, rightfully, but when they could not make the phone work properly and offered her a refurb only that had the same issue the Momma lost it. The fine art of slightly raising your voice and repeating back what they were saying just loud enough for the connecting sales ATT showroom to hear...she got a different new phone. After a year she signed a new contract with ATT and got an IPhone. This summer she will have to get a new one as the button isn't working right anymore. DS got a brand new IPhone at 23 months and two weeks into his contract because his button didn't work. Made up for his Razor Phone issues of 5 years ago.
    Isn't it funny how we talk about our phone problems these days?
    I remember the only phone choices back in the day bein' a black desktop rotary or a pay phone that ya' had to feed coins...!

    One of the Chicago ones is nice, the other is a tiny little thing. The mall ones are just generic mall stores with rack after rack of stuff. Hope they fix them someday.

    I always had a Princess phone in my room growing up. Looking back I wonder how they came up with that name, there was nothing Princessie about it.

    Ya I have no idea what is on the hub, these six, 6 days were just loaded on the CM ID. Which meant the CM needed to be present at least for 60 seconds until the hard ticket spit out. It was lovely. And I have all six as memories.

    Wonder why we at TDS haven't retro-jumped on this?!

    Yea, I think that is one of the differences...we get free passes every 6 months...one per dependent, and it sounds like Park CM's get unlimited access...like our ASM's and SM's...not to mention the folks here locally at ESPN, The Longhorn Network, and Junction Point...!
