Mesquite

For my birthday Rich gave me a trip to Mesquite and so on Wednesday we took off for our little get-a-way. We left the kids home with Joseph and McKell. We stopped in St George for lunch at IN-N-OUT Burger, I LOVE it!!
This is the only picture I took and it was on the way home. We had some good times and some bad...

First of all Rich has been driving for almost 20 years and he has NEVER had a ticket...he had the cruise set on 90 and totally got busted. We thought the officer might have mercy on him since his record is totally clean, well he only wrote the ticket for 10 over instead of 15 so I guess that's something.

We checked into the Oasis and our neighbors were pretty loud so Rich called the front desk to see if we could switch rooms, they said they only had a room across the street and I didn't want it so we decided to just live with it. We took off to get some dinner. We got back and our keys didn't work, we went to the front desk and they fixed it. We noticed that the curtains had been shut and there was a magazine and some newspapers on the table...also I had a plastic sack with a book, ipod speakers and some snacks on the table that was gone. We called security and they came and figured out that when Rich had called the front desk about the room change they put our room back in the system as available (even though we never went to the front desk to change rooms) so the people they gave it to realized that the room was not vacant and went and got a new room. Well the security guard told us he got us a new room so he escorted us across the street to our new room.
When I was getting ready the next morning I went to put on my jewelry and realized that I had left it in the old room on the bathroom counter (we had put on our swimsuits to go to the hot tub in the middle of the whole mess and I didn't even think about checking the bathroom)...I called the front desk and asked to see if they had rented the room after wee left, and they had. They put me through to housekeeping to see if my stuff was in lost and found and of course it wasn't!!! I was sick, my wedding ring, my watch, a few other rings (that have special meaning to me)and my earrings ALL GONE!! Security came up to our room for the second time and we had them call the Police. The officer assured me that if someone from housekeeping had seen my jewelry they would have turned it in. The people who were in the room had already checked out but were still in the hotel so the officer was going to talk to them. HELLO of course it was the maid. We were in the room long enough that they would have called housekeeping to clean the room before they gave it to someone else...I just wanted to talk to whoever was assigned to clean the room but of course that is NOT an option. We never heard anything all day from security or the police so Rich called security and they said they were still investigating. They have that policy on the door that the hotel is NOT RESPONSIBLE for anything lost or stolen and that pretty much leaves you with NO options!
I feel so stupid to have made such a dumb, dumb, dumb mistake but I honestly can't believe that someone can feel OK about stealing a woman's wedding ring...it is SO SAD. To top it off our insurance will only pay $1500 and we have a $500 deductible so that would leave me with $1000 to replace it. I just want my original ring back!!.
Even though we had some crappy things happen we still had some fun. We each got an hour massage and hung out by the pool all day. We had some quality time together too which is always good for business (if you know what I mean)!!

Are you serious!?!?!?! Ang, that is ridiculous. That hotel already screwed up and then you get your stuff stolen? I can't believe that! I am so angry at that stupid hotel right now and stupid liar buttfaces! I rally hope a miracle will happen and you will somehow get your ring back.

Amy said...

and your "quality time" being "good for business"...not really sure what kind of business you are talking about.

Janean said...

That sucks!!!! I would be soooo mad and would have a really hard time leaving without finding out who had my ring. I am so sorry & I hope some sort a miracle will happen for you and you find it. I'm glad you were able to have a fun time still with your quality "alone" time. :) Honestly, your incident would have probably ruined my whole trip.

Shannon said...

I can't believe that! You know it was the maid, duh! It makes me sick reading about it. I'm glad you still had fun. I agree with Janean, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy myself after all of that. And yes, quality alone time is ALWAYS good for business.

I cant stand dishonest people especially ones that steal! I'm sorry about your ring, I can only imagine how sad you feel.I would be sick to my stomache. Maybe it will turn up!! Glad you guys got to get away, turned out to be a pretty expensive weekend getaway.

Angela said...

I am so sorry about your ring!! That is so sad. I can't believe that that happened. I always hear stories about stuff like that, but never knew anyone it happened too. I hope it turns up somehow.

I love your blog by the way. Your kids are all so cute.

Melissa said...

That totally sucks! I'm so mad right now for you. Obviously the maid stole it and stealing is a crime! If someone stole from a store, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't just let it go like that. Sorry sis. And, I don't really need to know about your "quality time!"

Daisie said...

Ang! I am so sorry! That would break my heart too! I hate that this world is full of Rude Jerky Horrible People! I am glad you guys got to get away together!!

Hey Angela, this is Jen Parcell, I just was blog surfing and fell onto yours. I know we don't know each other very well, but I just feel sick about this. I am about ready to call the Oasis and rip them a new one. Seriously, I can't believe that they won't take any owner ship in what occured. We should call Get Gephart! THis is rediculous! And you are a better person than me! I would have cried and probably made a big scene. WOW!

Lyndsie said...

Oh Ang, I am so sorry that really sucks!!! That would just make me sick. I really hope that you somehow get it back!!!
