I Kid You Not...

Christopher came in at lunch and told me he was going to apply for a job at a nearby hotel. A friend of his works there, and said they may be hiring. This is good news. Kid needs a job. I need a kid who has a job.

It's a large hotel, part of a huge chain. I've been there for seminars and banquets and stuff. No No-tell Mo-tell for my boy.

Then I pop up the Spec to do some reading a few minutes ago, and find this: a member of this chain in Buffalo, at Niagara Falls, has come under nasty publicity for a massive 4-day convention they've booked.

Swingers. All 263 rooms booked for swingers. With local uptights in ranting and raving mode, the management assures everyone that they don't judge, they often book conventions of all types, and that nobody under the age of 18 will be let in the hotel during this convention.

What about staff?

Actually, I read through the whole piece, searching for titillation. Come on, didn't you? Frankly, the thought of 263 rooms filled with a bunch of swingers playing musical spouses is more than even I can grasp. I mean, there's always someone left out, right? And can you imagine every single door knob with a Do Not Disturb sign on it? All the time? Do they switch just for the event? Or every hour? Does someone blow a whistle?

I don't think I'd like to play. Well, that is until I read further, and got really excited. They have different talks and demonstrations. But, they also have a euchre tournament. Don't trump my bower, and I'm all yours.

I agree with you about staff possibly being under age 18. Can you imagine "room service" at this place. Some poor kid knocks on the door to deliver food and is told "come in". double yuck. I'm sure these people don't really care who sees them doing whatever.

Keep him away from the hotel, Lorraine. Among other things swingers are lousy tippers. No wallets for starters, or shirts, pants... or much of anything else for that matter. And who knows where those knives, forks and plates have been?

instead of a wallet, maybe they wear fanny packs and running shoes. now, there's a bad visual.

Hmmmm a job at a hotel during the swingers convention sounds like something a letter writer to a "men's magazine" would write.

It wouldn't be so bad being a bellhop or maybe a room service waiter, but you'd really want to avoid having to work in the laundry that week...

yeah, bellhop, they wouldn't have much luggage. But as Buzz mentioned, forget about the tip.

And, we get to keep going until WGJ shuts us down. hee hee hee
