Actual Conversation Happened Today

"Hello?"
"Yes, this is [some name] from Housekeeping?"
"Yes?"
"Our housekeeper was just up at your room but said you didn't want service."
"Yes."
"Why?"
(pause) "Umm, excuse me? Who did you say you think you are?"
"You're there during the day? Why didn't you want service?"
"I'm sorry, but are you actually demanding I explain myself to you?"
"Well, we don't want to have people call later and complain they didn't get housekeeping."
"I need to tell you something. This phone call is unacceptable."
(silence)
"See, I'll accept housekeeping or not accept housekeeping. Whatever mood I'm in. Now this is the part where I hang up."


I think the fact that I am within a mile or two of the actual real-life Chinatown referenced here may explain this call. WTF was that?

Reading the "needs to be shown how to turn on the shower" has me laughing so hard right now I am CRYING. Omg. I forgot about that. That's that little slip of paper that every four or five years one of us gives to the other as a present. How can something so terse summarize so much of an experience?
