Oh, drop towels all over the floor after all, you don't have to pick them up.

At a rate of $169 a night, they danged-well better pick up my towels, my cereal crumbs and watermelon rinds.

Good news Berkeley Dave, the Lifeguard you spotted was a temp, the regular Lifeguard, Jean Claude, is back from Holiday in France. Bon chance!



Oh, if only.....

(And thanks for the cute picture.)

Hotels are amazing, magical places, aren't they?

There is a saying (and I forget by whom, so don't anyone rag on me for paraphrasing) that goes, "When you are in a hotel, you are in an alternate reality". Having worked in one a long time ago I can tell you that it's true, from a guest perspective as well as an employee perspective. In so many ways, anything goes.


A friend of mine once told me that when he was working at the front desk, a guest once asked for 2 keys to the room, then slid one of the keys back to my friend, saying that this key was "for him."

So, Ock-man, did you ever get an *offer* from a guest?

Holy cow, just the question itself brought back a TON of memories. big grin

Anyway. The first time a guest propositioned me, I was a banquet porter helping out the serving staff during a small dinner (being a go-fer, basically... just running to get whatever they needed). A slightly older (as far as I could tell) guy attending it passed by the service area a couple of times then poked his head in and asked if I'd be interested in doing something later. Which is not a big deal in itself, but his vocal inflections and body language made his meaning clear. Being a straight guy, I was just a teenie bit rattled... but I rambled off a polite "no, thanks" and headed down to the staff cafeteria for a coffee or two. It was really nothing, but at the time my 18-year-old brain made it a little bigger deal in my head than it actually was. My level of social unsophistication back then gives me a good chuckle now.

It was always clearly indoctrinated into we employees that diddling around with guests could get you fired, so all my future debauchery was with staff- LOL!

Man, the early 80's were AWESOME!

Now, THIS is my ideal of a polite young man: he's courteous even to a MASHER! smile

Another year, another hotel, another city. This time it's Orlando. (Cheez, I thought LA sprawled. This place has it beat.)

Hotel room looks about the same as last year.

Two beds this time, though. What am I supposed to do with two beds? smile

And hey! The bathroom sink is in a different room than the toilet. What if I want to floss in the mirror while I'm on the potty? This is a full-service hotel; shouldn't I be able to? big grin

Whatta way tuh run a railroad! smile
