Who Else is Staying Here? June 9, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in life.
Fire alarms in a Hotel suck. We had one this morning — at least it was at 7:30 am. Say what you will for the inconvenience, it is an interesting sociological experiment. The business woman I saw dressed to the nines in a high power suit the evening before had on a sleeping outfit that was a tee-shirt with holes and plaid sweats that had seen better days. She had even had her slippers with her. From one hotel room four adults issued forth: these rooms are big enough to fit two; that is pretty much it. Several different people (from different rooms, presumably unrelated) were using Clorox tee-shirts for sleeping. A lot of people walked out to their cars, got in, and went to sleep in the driver’s seat waiting for the fire department, and for a second set it was an opportunity to grab a smoke.
