Today Marty didn't work with hot glass. So since it is National Hamburger Week, we went out for hamburgers.(This has been a great week for hamburgers. We fixed them once and went out for them twice.) Then it was what do you want to do? Well, what do you want to do? We drove around waiting for inspiration. And it hit us, the Oakland Museum has just reopened after 2 years of renovation. Great idea.
Marty googled it for hours and admission fees. The site said seniors $5.00. We parked on the street, because their parking garage rapes the public. It is way higher than other garages in the area. Anyway, we paid for 2 hours on the meter. We went in and the sign at the desk said seniors $9.00. WHAT? It has nearly doubled in the last 5 minutes?
Marty told the (trying to think of a nice word here, not happening) bitch at the counter the web site says $5.00. And she said real snippy, "No, it doesn't!" And then she laughed at us. Marty started to hand her a $20 to pay the $18 and I said, "No, she just called us liars. I don't want to go in." We left.
If she had said anything about the web site hadn't been updated or that there are old websites out there. I think I would have been fine. But it was bad enough they nearly doubled the price and then a bitchy clerk insults us and then laughs at us.
We checked the site again when we got home. It says Senior $5.00. Interestingly, we found another museum site with the new prices. Perhaps they should take down their old site.
