Hotel holla

Just now the Marriott called me to tell me that Mike had left two ties in his room. Excellent customer service! Kudos, Marriott.

But that exchange reminded me of a story.....

Years ago, when I travelled for work alot, I left one of my favorite over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders (if you know what I mean, and I think you do) at a hotel room in Orlando. Now this place had to have been a W or something, because it was super posh and nice. I called and left a message with the hotel housekeeping only because it was one of my favorites. Later that day they called back and the guy on the other end said, in a very snooty/nasal almost-british-accent butler-like voice: "Ms. Stratton? You called housekeeping about something you left?"

Me: Yes?

Snobby Hotel Guy (SHG): "We found your..... your...... your....."

I'm dying, like, IS HE GOING TO SAY IT?

SHG: "....article of clothing...."

I laughed so hard when I got off the phone. The guy couldn't even say the word! bwah!

That is hilarious! I just had a bad experience with a W so I'm shocked they found it and called you. I would have begged him to say it on the phone :)
