Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret of Trout Point Lodge Nova Scotia
Folks my mind is open to the possibility that this will be more fun than skewering Oxpatch insurance whores Scot Spragins and his sidekick Lucky Tucker thus the new pic to illustrate the gay free speech nazis Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret of Trout Point Lodge. You see last night I wrote a post about the very real bankruptcy chances at Trout Point Lodge citing bad reviews from Trip Advisor as proof. I included the fact I spoke with a gentleman from New York that had a very recent bad experience with the girls at Trout Point and sure enough, true to my word today allow me to present Kirk Cheyfitz, CEO of Story Worldwide and newest member of the Slabbed Nation: His blog post on the hostile innkeeper for Story’s Post Advertising blog is simply priceless:
A strange encounter with a somewhat hostile innkeeper in the wilds of Nova Scotia has focused me on the escalating war that more and more businesses are waging against their customers’ free speech rights online.
It all began as my wife Ellen and I tried to check in at Trout Point Lodge in the remote Nova Scotia woods. We had reserved lodging for four nights, but at the front desk we were told we would not be allowed to check in unless we signed a legalistic “Registration Card” that gave up our right to publish (or, perhaps, even talk about) our own opinions or accounts of the place.
Obviously the girls at Trout Point Lodge do not have a stellar business record folks from their failed Washington Parish Exotic Cheese Farm to the defunct Nova Scotia Dairy farm to the ill fated Cerro Coyote Hotel project, all of which were at least partially paid for with other people’s money. After Aaron Broussard’s fall from grace and the end of pay to play Nova Scotia style things just got plain worser for the girls at Trout Point who tried everything, from marketing the lodge as gay friendly to rolling out all the PR stops. Without the ferry service from Portland Maine it simply isn’t worth the very long trip overland to the lodge, which is stuck out in the middle of no where. And of course once you get there the hidden charges are a real bitch as this disappointed guest points out at Trip Advisor, one of the travel sites where the girls advertise heavily:
We rented River Bend which is a huge cottage. There were 3 couples traveling and this was perfect in size. Trout Point is about 35 to 40 minutes from any town, so you will want to bring food. When we open the front door there was mouse droppings, lots of it! Now we are out in the woods so we weren’t too upset but the Innkeepers could have swept it up before we arrived. The Innkeeper gave my husband the extension to call the front desk to make breakfast reservation. She gave us the wrong number! I had to drive back to the lobby to make the reservation. Breakfast was fine, nothing special, potato cakes, waffles and fresh fruit and 1 muffin that was very good. We were expecting more because of the culinary reviews. After breakfast we asked the cost for dinner. We were infomed that breakfast was $22.50 and dinner was $143.00 for two. We opted not to have dinner. Dinner in town for a full lobster and mussels runs about $30.00. The next day at check out we were hit with a 18% gratuity on the whole bill!!! and breakfast was $22.50 per person!! When I say whole bill, I mean including the lodging. No one ever came and cleaned our rooms when we were out. We stayed two days. So why the 18% gratuity on the lodging?? All the information we read about Point Trout never mentioned the 18% additional charge and I am in the process of contacting my credit card company to reverse that charge. If you have any questions about the area or about the Inn then you will have to look for the Innkeeper because they are never at the front desk.
We will not stay here again. It was a beautiful place but this place is very deceptive in their charges.
River Bend has some ownership questions but there is no doubt the girls were the interface with the guests in Nova Scotia. But it gets better because the pressure of being scrutinized by Slabbed is evidently showing. Late last week I spoke with a nice gentleman from New York who heads a large media company that for now will remain nameless. What he described to me indicated Team Trout Point has some sort of mental disorder that goes wayyyyyyy beyond my limited capabilities to diagnose them from here at the registered office in Mississippi. That said he was very nice and just yesterday shared his experiences with Chuckie and the gang over at Trip Advisor under the lede “Hire a lawyer”: Continue reading “About the chances that Trout Point Lodge will be bankrupt within a year…..”
Oh the memorie$$$$$$$$ but I’m rule 301 so I ain’t sayin’.
That said we get word today from Hammerman that Judge Fallon has placed what is left of Mark St Pierre’s nuts in the ol’ forfeiture vice to the tune of a cool $3.2MM. This news means Stacy’s chances of going cougar while hubby is away doing 20 plus have taken a real hit. IMHO Marky Mark is finding out first hand that covering for Ray Ray the Chocolate Guy is hazardous to ones freedom and financial well-being.
I wouldn’t want to spoil any futures surprises for Team St Pierre but Uncle Sam has a staff of repo men at the ready. They are also known as US Marshals and them guys are pretty adept at their trade. I’d be nice to them if it were me.
The Plaquemines Citizen has issued an amber alert for Nunny and we have found a lead on his whereabouts courtesy of our friends up Alexandria way at We Saw That. Simply put in between campaign stops Nunny is engaging a letter writing fetish for his “psychic” friend Rachel Adams. I’m sure there is one helluva a back story here on Nunny and Mrs Adams folks. Of course we know Nunny best for attempting to stiff Gidget on a 5 figure prostitution tab back in the day but we had no clue he was into the occult. Here is a snippet from The Town Talk article on Mrs Adam’s quest to begin fortune-telling in Alexandria:
Billy Nungesser, president of Plaquemines Parish, sent an email to Alexandria Mayor Jacques M. Roy on July 14 asking that city officials work with Adams to allow her to open her business so that she could move with her family to Alexandria.
I’ve tried to make a point of taking this day to myself the past 6 years though I must admit that on this 6 anniversary of Katrina, 8/29 has almost become just another day. I am not sure if that is good or not.
Well, well Wade Rathke is back in his home town New Orleans again folks and has purchased a $500,000 coffee shop. But unfortunately his main intention is not to rebuild New Orleans or its economy. Nope, he’s back in town to again be a community organizer, promote his most recent socialist power to the people book and to start another Acorn-like organization. And his planned propaganda epicenter? Well naturally its his coffee shop , The Coffee Grinds, with its 300 daily coffee customers just waiting to be brainwashed and organized by Wade’s 40 years of community socialistic agenda.
Wade or course is the infamous founding father of Acorn locally and nationwide and still involved internationally in his revolutionary one man trek for a one world socialist economy. Now since we have a President , who is the world’s best community organizer and redistributor of wealth, does New Orleans need a home boy as a second rate organizer? I think not. New Orleans , especially the Ninth Ward, has been rebuilt not by Acorn or other power to the people groups, but predominantly by out-of -state white Christian church groups. And despite the efforts of our Chocolate Mayor Nagin to polarize the races, our city has become color blind and also united by the Saints championship and joined at the hip against crime and political corruption. Here especially at the SlabbedNation we have all suffered individual personal losses from the great flood, hence the term Slabbed, but in the end have all become mentally and physically stronger .
Yeah the buttcall is a classic but this post here is the macdaddy one involving Lewis. In this bar fight application Lewis is probably at his highest and best use as a criminal defense lawyer but I think Jefferson and his sidekick should be thrown off the team for complete stupidity. Maybe now we know why it has taken Jefferson so long to mature as a college quarterback despite the physical talent cause the boy is a complete dumbass.
