Regarding my post. This is a follow up regarding the answer that I have been waiting for a month and takes forever to get a reply from management ever since I started my email months ago.. It is funny how the reply from the management is making me look like I'm a forgetful person. About how I cannot remember if I hit the slope or wall. My good sir (manager) read my response and emails carefully, before you write your response to me. If I am a forgetful person, would I even draw you a picture of the layout where it happened? At the exact place? And also, if you read carefully, I didn't say it happened at the back alley, the minor accident happened on the slope going down to the basement parking, that I have been continually explaining to you in the previous emails, which I believe, if I'm not mistaken, that that slope going down to the basement , is owned by the hotel... I am quoting you guys, when you guys said that there are no cctv cameras in the area where I pinpointed, that's why we are having a conundrum as to know if I am telling the truth or not, and that's why, you or your guys cannot do a proper investigation. Nevertheless. I received your response. And have heard you loud and clear, and this is just to let other people know, that they should be extra vigilant when they stay at the property...
