OK... Ya all know me well enough to know I don't really get mad... sad sometimes.. irratated once in awhile but not ANGRY enough to KILL!!! Well, I'm pissed! About THREE months ago our Mexican condo home owners ***. set the date for this years meeting. FEB 19TH 2008! Paul and I bought our airplane tickets..so did everyone else. We fly in on the 13th and leave the 22nd. I just got email saying that they've decided to change the meeting date to the 25th of FEB!!!! They gave a flimsly excuse in the letter but we happen to know people on the board so I know the REAL story ( one of the delevopers, has plans to go to the wedding on the 23rd and wanted the date changed!!!!) Paul has his time off approved already... tickets are bought and are NOT-refundable... we may be able to change them but it's going to cost us$$$! I'm so angry!!!

I don't blame you for being angry. Can you get in contact with others and see if you can all petition or something to keep the date? Or, just write the board and say that there is no way you can make the meeting if it is changed and sign a proxy or something? I would be livid. It isn't like it is a strata meeting that is around the corner from you or something! No wonder you have a headache!!!!!

We are contacting the board and will file complaints. I'm sure others will too. Only a handful of folks live there the rest are flying in from all over the USA and Canada. There are going to be some really angry people. We can have other people vote for us but because of recent happenings...it's really important that we are there in person.

So why not have the meeting without him/her after all they are the ones thay can't make it. Why change many peoples plans because of one person, not only that but weddings are planned months ahead they should have known to plan on it. Also what about members that could not it make due to unexpected problems. Maybe the developer can attend by phone or internet webcam.

I don't blame you at all for being angry. I'm feeling angry for you. I would be livid! Sorry you're having to go through this. I would definitely register a complaint of some sort.

I'd be angry, too, if I had to change tickets that I'm going to have to cough up more money to change probably close to $200........and try and get new seats.........air travel is getting tighter and tighter these days and just to suit their last minute arrangements when you already had reservations and now you might have to spend more money on new tickets.........
