Peter's Wednesday Interview Blog - Bob learns a valuable lesson while vacationing with his family& More!
Hello, my fellow WOE Friends!
Happy `midway point' for all you Monday - Friday workers. Do you have any summer plans? Family road trips? Or any family visiting you?
Summer is already upon those in Florida. Jennifer, Sally and I went to Orlando today and let me tell you, the heat is on! So is the humidity.
If you're coming to Florida for a family vacation, especially Orlando to visit the theme parks, be prepared for the heat. It will zap the energy out of you. Make sure to soak up air conditioning whenever you can and stay hydrated. Also, wear a hat and sunscreen.
I'll be adding a few pictures, a short review, and hopefully some video (if it comes out alright), later this weekend in Peter's Pics.
I have attached the latest HR Picture: The Worst part about Racism below.

This week's WOE Interview/story is about Bob. Bob learns a valuable lesson while visiting with his family on vacation at the WOE.
I hope you enjoy it!
OK. This interview is not really an interview, but a story about a family who recently visited for a week. I wanted to write about Bob and what happened to him, and he was happy to share with all of you.
When Bob, his wife, Bertha, and two young boys arrived on this particular Tuesday morning, they stood out. Within moments of them coming from the airport, guests and employees heard Bob loudly correct his wife for not moving quick enough, for the way her hair looked, and the way she was dressed.
The loud corrections continued through the Hotel Guests Hub check-in process, to the Family Hotel, and even at the water park and dinner. The young boys seemed used to the fact that their dad would loudly correct their mom in front of others, for any reason what's so ever. Unfortunately, Bertha was used to it too.
On the third day of their visit, things continued as they have been. At times, Bertha would even be corrected before a show or going on an attraction. It seemed that she just couldn't do anything right. Bob would often yell at her behind closed doors because she just wouldn't change.
But later on Friday, Bob had to go back to his suite to get something Bertha forgot. When he got to his suite, he picked up the item and then heard a man yelling at someone in the next suite. Being that the walls are pretty thick, he was surprised to be able to hear anything at all.
The yelling became louder, and as he put his ear up to the wall. He could hear the man say to someone else that they were worthless, irresponsible, couldn't dress themselves or act appropriately in public. Just as Bob would say to Bertha.
He started to hear a woman cry hysterically while telling him how sorry she was for disappointing him.
Bob felt terrible for her. As he left his suite, he thought about knocking on the door to ask if everything was alright. He stood outside his door, but before he made up his mind, a family of five came walking down the hall, greeted Bob as they passed him, stopped in front of the suite next door, and went inside.
Bob was sure there were people in there already, but who were these people who just went in?
On Saturday, Bob heard yelling in the suite on the other side while using the restroom. It was a different male voice and another woman crying.
On Sunday, as Bob was walking down to the water park to join his family, he could hear more men yelling at their wives as he passed by their suites, but he could see no one.
As Bob met his family, he started crying in front of Bertha. "I'm sorry. I'm so sorry for everything I ever said or did to hurt you. I love you so much!
Bertha embraced Bob and said, "I know you care about me and love me. I am a grown woman and not be all you expect all the time, but I love you too and know how much you really do care."
"I heard what it felt like for Bertha. I saw in the mirror who it was. It wasn't who she married and loved. It was my own anger, and it was ugly. Now, I feel nothing but love for someone who tolerated so much for so long That, is love. Now, I am thankful I was helped."
Bob and Bertha renewed their marriage vows on Monday in the WOE Chapel and went home as a new couple and a happier family.
