Just got back from DC/NY...loved DC (except for the idiot in chief) hate can have it

Edited on Tue Apr-29-08 10:12 PM by greenbriar
Hubby got his laptop bag stolen while we were on our tour group (32 8th graders walking all over Times Square)

In that bag... which cost 150 bucks

his work laptop
his work black berry
his personal 4 gig IPOD
his high dollar prescription computer glasses
4 prescriptions
5 jump drive sticks
his key ring with both of our vehicles, house, riding lawn mower, his mom's house key and more...

the Sheridon Manhattan security team SUCKS BALLS

HEre is why it happened. We were on a school trip with World Strides. We were bussed from DC to NY and dropped off at FAO swartz. We were dropped off at 1 pm and did not see our hotel until 6pm

the bus with over 70 pieces of luggage went to the hotel and the tour people over saw our luggage all to be placed in the principals room. This was all taking place as we were walking all over 5th avenue seeing the sites. All luggage except ONE bag were accounted for!!! and hubbys was not the only lap top bag...

but an investigation is under way because they are clearly at fault...the security cameras show the bag being hand carried by our tour group leader and personally placed on the luggage cart along with 70 other pieces of luggage and taken to the elevators...after that...gone
