As I mentioned in my last post, I was not happy with the Empire State Building. The wait was long (wait to pay, wait to get on the elevator, wait to get into the other elevator, wait for people to move so we could actually see something) and the view was nice however dissapointing – for me, I guess I was expecting to be blown away – and we didn’t go to the top (an extra 15$ each) so we went to the 86th(?) floor for 20$ each. I could have easily done without the experience but atleast now I know. At least it was air conditioned. [I don’t mean to affend any NYers by the way!]
One more complaint about the trip – TGI Fridays. I had never been, Rima suggested it for lunch one day and I said sure, I could probably have a salad or something. I start going through the giant menu assuming I will find lots of options for a non meat eater who sometimes eats fish. Turns out that if I wanted to eat a meal, it would cost me over 25$. For lunch. In a restaurant with ‘Kitsch’ glued to the walls. AND if I want a 30$ shrimp meal, that would not be my first, second or 3rd choice. I ended up just sharing a plate of spinach dip and stealing some crazy salty breaded shrimp and fries from Rima. If I didn’t eat fish, there would be NO entree I could eat. Every single salad had chicken on it. I guess I could have asked for no chicken but then I would just have an overpriced salad and we were trying to be smart with our money on this trip. TGIFriday, you do not cater to vegetarians, just offer a damn salad with no chicken. Is that too much to ask for? And to top it all off, our waiter was pretty bad.
The week is almost over, it’s kind of bittersweet. I want it to be over desperately because holding up the Marketing department fort has turned out MUCH harder than I had anticipated and I would be pulling out my hair if it was still long. Of course when I’m alone, there has to be all these problems I know nothing about. I think for me that is the absolute WORST (worse? I have no idea) thing ever. I hate NOT knowing things. On the downside of the week being almost over, I have SO MUCH work to do before the end of the day, I won’t be able to do it all. I feel like all I’ve been doing all week is putting out fires. It’s exhausting.
K my bitching for the week is DONE, it’s been an exhausting few months and I have to get my bitching out.
I hope everyone has a good weekend. I will be back Monday or Sunday night with pictures from the weekend.
