    My Trip Report

    I went to the carnival court on the 3rd but I had my family with me ( sister brother in law, son, his underage girlfriend,) long story short they suck in VEGAS........ I had a ok time but I hate trying to keep 5 other people happy at the same time it sucked....

    3rd of July I think it was, we leave the Elvis slots at Imperial palace to go make our dinner reservations and you know A girl hits the progressive on the machine my ex-husband had just been on 199,000,00 not sure of the exact numbers . oohhh my god it sucked so bad.... Those were the slots we had played all weekend... anyway next morning I go down and say I am going to play on that machine maybe it will hit again.,.... then I decide NO i am going to play on the machine right behind it (still Elvis) that I had been playing all weekend ... and BOY was I glad I did because I hit 10,000 quarters wooowwoo 2500.00 what a way to leave vegas... Not so quick.. I soon discover that I have LOST the rental CAR KEYS...... its 2 pm I go to the desk where lost and found is and no they have no keys so I look and Look and LOok ask agian and again and again at the lost desk and no no car keys . Only a trunk key left in a room. Let me remind you that now its about 5:30 and no help from Thrifty they finally send a tow truck who will open it to see if I locked them in the trunk which I know I didnt but at this point I will try anything... Thrifty put me through hell on the phone all my papers where in the car..... and I couldnt hear because my cell was dead and I was having to us the house phone at IP which you can hear anything because of the casino noise.... I wait 2 hours for the tow truck he breaks in and NO the keys are not in the trunk but we atleast have our suitcases out.About 6:15 I go ask again because we need to leave at 8:30 for the airport so I go back to the lost desk and say Let me see the keys that were left in a room maybe someone found the keys and took them back to the room well I hate Imperial Palace now because of what happens next I argue with the guy for about 30 minutes about letting me see the keys because Thrifty has told me they will have the car towed and I will pay 100 to 500 dollars for new keys ..... and all I want to do is look at the damn key someone found or left or whatever and they just will not let me I am getting pissed so as loud as you can get on the casino floor I say LOOK I AM NOT GOING ANYWHERE UNTIL I GET TO SEE FOR MY SELF THAT THE KEY YOU HAVE IS NOT FOR MY RENTAL CAR...... so he looks down at his paper which 4 other people have done through out the day already to see if any keys were found and the BUTTHOLE says well a set of cars keys were found and 12:45 around room 219 I ask well is that on the way to the pool where I was at 12:30 ?????????? yes it is.. well where the HELL have those keys been this whole friggggggen time I have been asking for them ?? which has now been for more than 4 hours... well we must have overlooked them .. let us get them here and you can look at them its 6:40 now it took me until 8:40 to get the keys and yes they were mine.... I am getting off the elevator to the parking garage and they are backing up to the car to tow it... I scream across the parking garage STOP I have the keys ,,,well the guy thought he was funny he said no once I start I have to tow it I just start crying at this point ... he said no I am just kidding..... end of story I came home with 2000 of my money because I didnt have any time to gamble after I noticed I lost the keys . NO craps or anything ...

    We make it to the airport get through all the gates and get a sandwich and our plane board about 6 minutes later... close call

    So since it sucked about the stupid car and my family of sticks in the mud the ex-hubby and I are going back Aug 25 through 28 I just have to remember that I dont always win 2500 ... but I cant wait to try...

    Sorry I missed the meeting I hoped you all had a great time...

    OMG Paula, I think I have to cover some gray hairs just from reading that story! I'm sorry you missed the July 3rd meet up at Carnaval Court too. It was a lot of fun! Although fitting all of us into one taxi would have been... interesting! We already put five into in and that was cozy :wink2: Hmmm, then again with 11 people a limo would have made perfect sense!! Woohoo!

    I felt like I was going to have an a freakin stroke over the keys then when I found out they had them the whole time it took everything I had to not just kick someones a$$. I have emailed them lets see if they do anything about it .

    I would call, too. That is BS. I would be pissed as well. Not that you would want a free room or anything, but maybe they would give you something if you put up enough fuss...Congrats on the win, though!

    Paula, sorry you missed us at Carnaval Court....When you are here in August I'll meet you for a drink or two....or three, that will make up for the family being a stick in the mud!

    Yes CK we would have just called a limo to come and get us instead of a taxi that night. Oh well there is always next time!
