My wife and her friends went to a wedding in Daejeon at the weekend.  They don't meet up so often so decided to stay in the Lotte Hotel in Daejeon for a night.  On Sunday, she got woken up by the sound of water.  She looked in the bathroom and there was water pissing out from all light fittings and any gaps in the ceiling.  We're not talking dripping, we're talking an almost waterfall.  The hotel's reaction at the weekend was not satisfactory.  So I wrote the complaint email today with a copy of the video my wife took, but trying to find an email address online is almost impossible.   >:(

Damn. That's bad. Like, first off, the Lotte Hotels are branded and marketed as slightly fancy. Also, they are slightly better than what you'd get with your basic economy accommodation.

What was their reaction? If they offered anything less than a full refund, free stay voucher, or gift certificate equal to or greater than the cost of the room, that's totally unacceptable.

Fancy hotels should generally operate under the premise that if they screw anything up beyond like, a simple minor inconvenience, you shouldn't be paying for your room. Having a flooded bathroom definitely qualifies.

Dang. That dude has some serious experience.

I wonder if he's actually competent, or if he's just been coasting for 30 years.

it stuff like this which makes korea's defamation laws look ridiculous

"our hotel stay was very bad. water was spraying out of light fitting and the ceiling. the hotel's reaction was also very unsatisfactory"

"we are suing you for defamation!"

it's really no surprise their reaction was unsatisfactory. if you can't write an honest review about your stay, what incentive do they have to make sure you feel satisfactorily compensated?

It's basically a resume listing very extensive work experience. And I don't think you need to have linkedin to view pages: I don't and I can read it just fine.

Pic of overachiever's profile is in attachment.  :smiley:

The reason I sent it was so that you could ask him for a connection / send a complaint high enough up to the food chain to get action.

actually, it gave me the "If you make a linkedin account, you can view pages for free!"
and there was no way to close it to see the actual link. :o
I'll check again and see if I can though.

EDIT: Yeah, same thing. It's trying to get me to sign up to view it.

Try linking to that site in Incognito, with a VPN, or after clearing your cache. Could be that cookies are messing up your ability to view the page?

Same with cache cleared and incognito mode. Too lazy, and don't care enough, to bother with a VPN though :p

Was only interested in reading the link was posted. I'm not sure what I'd need contact info or to send a message. :p

I got into the habit of going to the gym in the evenings, and I haven't had a proper early morning workout in about a year.

Finally decided to give it a go this morning despite not getting more than four hours sleep last night.

Now all I want to do is take a nap. Probably should have experimented with this on Friday.
