I think ABC/ESPN/ Disney channel/ Movies etc...is the money makers for them or if you will the essence of their business. Hotels, theme parks, restaurants, etc..are more functions of their business that helps promote the essence.

As far as the pins/coins I got a ton of stuff and that was just in a years time. Maybe I got more becasue I was more directly related to Disney. I still have most of it, I like to picture myself after my wife has left me and my kids have disowned me that I will be able to peddle them on the street for whiskey vs. sexual favors.

That remind me when I worked for Marriott at 5 years I picked the swiss army knife with the M on it and I told folks if I am here at ten years I will use it to cut my wrist. I quit Marriott the week of my tenth anniversary, I still got my gold watch though.

Gears officially grinding.
Oh God.. once to twice a week... we get email notifications of the call that we already know is scheduled... I have to call my other market stores to remind them.. we wait 5-15 mins for he guy running it to get on... then he proceeds to rehash info from the daily emails and recent reports.. which if he had competent people running the locations... would already be known

Women that wear way too much perfume.

We have this one woman in the office that I swear bathes in the stuff. And of course she has to sit near me. The crap gives me a raging headache some days.

Or dudes with cologne. We have one guy who is just like the woman you describe. When he first started, people thought it was the cleaning crew using some new chemical. It was real bad. I don't know if someone talked to him or what, but he's backed off of it a bit. Maybe our sense of smell has just been burned out.

Last night I said to the lady how is it that I can get water, electricity, and gas delivered to my house everyday with nearly zero problems but you guys can't get me on a consistent basis a good TV signal.

I wish they just turn on the damn FIOS that they installed in May 2011! All the wires are run and everything yet they won't offer to folks.
