At least a year ago I read a thread about the comments people make at owners updates to escape. Basically one liners to end the presentation when it goes on too long. I can't find that thread. Can someone help me out?
I remember one comment in particular, something to the effect that "you invited me." I think it was @DavidnRobin who made the comment I remember, but I can't find the thread.

I'm only considering going to an update to hear the latest version of the Marriott/Vistana merger "new reality". Not buying anything.

TIA, Gina

No that's not it. That thread is way too old. It was only a year or so ago. I remember I commented in the thread, but I can't find it.

Thanks for trying though! :)

Edit: I just figured out how to go through my posts (couldn't find the older ones, now I see how) Now I just have to search through them. Good thing I only have 1100 or so.

I found the one I was looking for. But I thought there was another thread with even more snappy responses.


“Why are you here?”
Because it was advertised as an Owners Update...

I no longer say, "I don't want to go," I say, "NOT going."

A recent exchange:
Her, "We have some new info at our update blah blah blah."
Me, "I'm NOT going to the update."
Her, "Why?"
Me, "Because I'm NOT wasting my time."
Her, "But we have new info about blah blah blah."
Me after rudely interrupting her, "You can talk as long as you like, I'm NOT going."
Her, "Here's your parking pass."

Just got back from Wyndham Sedona, where we (DW and I) decided to attend the Owner Update (we aren't owners, but they didn't seem to care) for the $100 Amex gift car and some discount.

"Why are you here?" "Frankly, for the gifts, because you invited us. We're not buying anything; in fact we're selling off our timeshares."

"But the purpose of these visits is to sell you something." [He really said this!] "Sorry. Not us. Why not cut us loose and focus on the next couple?"

Which he did after 50 minutes. I didn't get to use my favorite line, "My probation officer says I'm not allowed to buy timeshares any more."

Yes! I'm just a jerk. I don't even care.
