Is there ANY timeshare company that isn't a "leader" in the industry?

Every time I read a release from a timeshare company........any timeshare company, it starts out with .........a leader in the timeshare blah, blah, blah industry."

Do they really think that if they say those words in every stinking press release, that will make them a "leader in the industry?"

Sorry for the rant, for whatever reason, after listening the the news media types jump all over industry and the mess our economy seems to be in, always reading "a leader in the industry" just seems to tick me off. Everyone can't be a leader and some of these outfits are just not that great if you ask me.

Leaders & Followers.

As part of his son's college admission application process, a father was asked to submit an assessment of his son's leadership characteristics.

After trying & failing to come up with something positive to say about the boy as a leader, the man wrote, "To this point in his development, my son has not shown any leadership characteristics. However, he is an excellent follower of good examples."

After a few weeks, the man received a letter from the Dean Of Admissions. "Congratulations," it said. "Your son has been selected for admission to the Class Of 2012. You may be interested in knowing that the incoming Freshman class will be made up of 449 Leaders & 1 Follower."

This reminds me of Garrison Keillor's mythical hometown of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota where all the kids are above average.

Doug your stating what everyone thinks when hearing this kind of bull but don't say it!

This is like the ad's for a new TV show that it is the biggest hit of the season and it still hasn't started to show yet. This season three of these shows were canceled within two months of showing.:doh:

Also like all the casino's in Reno that brag of looses slots in town and take your money.:hysterical:

My wife always tells me when we are losing on these slots that maybe I read it wrong and they said sluts (working girls) and not slots and this would be true fact! :shrug:

Festiva wouldn't dare try to say it, would they?

I doubt that Festiva would say they were first in anything except maybe fees (which would be wrong as Diamond seems to hold THAT record right now).

I've been to quite a few of the world's largest salad bars. ;)
