A Hotel Conversation

For your Friday entertainment, a true conversation follows. This may only be amusing to road warriors.

TB–(calling front desk) Hi, my wife is in a meeting here today and I wanted to see about getting a late checkout.

Hotel Operator–Good morning sir. I’m sure that won’t be a problem. Hold while I transfer you.

Hotel Clerk–(after at least 12 rings)–Good Morning Sir! May I help you?

TB–Hi, my wife is in a meeting at the hotel this morning and I wanted to see about getting a late checkout.

Hotel Clerk–Good Morning Sir!! Your wife has a fax at the front desk.

TB–Ok, thanks. Is the late checkout ok?

Hotel Clerk–I’m sure that will be no problem sir! Let me transfer you to the Bell Captain.

Bell Captain–Good Morning Sir!!! How may I help you?

TB–My wife has a meeting here this morning and I want to see about getting a late checkout.

Bell Captain–I’m sure that will be no problem sir! Let me transfer you to Guest Services.

TB–(blank stare)

Guest Services–Good Morning Sir!!!! How may I help you?

TB–Hi, my wife is in a meeting here this morning and I wanted to see about getting a late checkout.

Guest Services Bitch–Ohhhhhhh, I’m sorry sir. We have a lot of people checking in today. No late checkouts.

TB–(Angry Glare)

About travellinbaen

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

    Ah, I have a vision of all these employees in one room passing the phone around after having drawn straws to see which one of them would tell you at the last minute that there was no late check out. I hate your angry glare was wasted over the telephone!
