Warning - Sarcasm alert!
Look, it's an expression we've all used when we hear or see something totally absurd. Catch the image on the inside of the elevator doors of the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta. At the bottom, which I missed in the photograph, are instructions on how to take a selfie with this Atlanta image in the background.
By itself it would be fine, but check out the title they've added at the top!
Now, think about the image you're about to take and tell me who you'd send it to! Next, tell me who the bonehead is who came up with the tagline of "It's good not to be home!"
Yeah, we're all going to take a shot with this backdrop and send it to our spouses and families! "Hi Honey, miss you. Sure does feel good to not be home." NOT!
Hey, I warned you it was "Sarcastic Saturday"! I can just see what would happen in my own house and how long it would be before Sheila talked to me.
So, here's my point. I hate not being home. Yes, I love great conventions, networking and catching up to friends, but if I could do it all while staying home and not traveling I'd probably never leave the house.
So, to the moron at Hyatt who thought this was a great idea: I love your hotel, but get your ego in check and pull your head out of your butt. You've got a long way to go before you replace most traveler's homes.
Hit it Dorothy - There's still no place like home!
