Remember the fabulous vacation I booked last year at The Buccaneer in St Croix? The Buccaneer is a fabulous old school resort reminiscent of Lucy and Desi heydays.

The Buccaneers cheapest room now is a parking lot view at $380 plus 18% room and electricity tax.

Last year they put Gigi and I in the honeymoon suite which goes for over $1,000 a night.

The cost of the vacation to me was $700 for everything for 7 nights. We flew down on air miles free so I got a luxury vacation on the cheap.

This year I saw the offer again and I won again for a grand total of $752. I paid when I won and decided to book yesterday. This is the email I got back:

Dear wReggie,

Are you shitting me? Do I want to be homeless for 4 days? No.

I won 7 days at The Buccaneer and paid for 7 days. You took my money (I get real shitty when people steal from me) and yet you don’t deliver.

I wrote back and called. I had to leave a voice mail and haven’t heard back from the email. I told them no I want 7 days or a full refund.

Come Monday I expect a satisfactory answer or I’ll reverse the charge from the credit card company.

Stay tuned.
