They don't want you there. You are the cheap ass relative that lives in the
basement. Your door will be silent.
I say again cheap ass bastard.
Some snippage of BS...
No, a Sheraton would never have bathtubs for your slimy ass. Slip a day
worker $50 and he MAY hose you off.
I have told you before get a handicap/roll in shower. It will have a hand
held shower head to was your pate with.
Dealing with assholes like yours. They will probe but find you're all
You need a Platinum card to pay for the probe.
So I called the Hilton again. Last night the woman had too much of an
accent to be sure of what she said.
Today a different girl again offerred me (perhaps for extra money) an
accessible room with an accessible bathtub. Not worth having even for
no more money.
Then like last night, even without my asking, she started in on the
features the room had; the size of the bed, the 40" tv. I already know
approximately and that wasn't why I called. I know they're told to do
this, but it's a waste of my time, so I interrupted.
I asked about the fancy rooms.. Did I hear last night that they had two
bathrooms? Yes, they have such rooms, but she couldn't tell whether
there was a bathtub in either.
Last night I thought since they have no bathtub to offer me, maybe
they'll give me a complimentary breakfast, so I asked if breakfast was
included. It was already included, she said, even though nowhere does
it say that. Not on the email confirmation, or the web listing. or the
webpage that says what comes with a room. There is on a webpage
something about a package of wifi, breakfast, and parking for one car,
woth $63, but it didn't say how to get it or how much it cost. But
she said I already get breakfast. We'll see.
She was very nice, and when I asked said she was in the Phillipines. I
told her about a good friend's Philipina wife, whom I liked. I think
the girl last night also had a Philipine accent but much stronger, and
she talked too fast.
Then she wanted to transfer me to what I thought would be a recording,
but it was a guy trying to sell me a package. I asked if the places
would have bathtubs and told him how tomorrow's hotel didn't, and he
told me he would refund me $100 on that. Wow, $20 seemed about right,
or maybe 20 x 2 nights. but 100! Later it was apparent I only got
that if I paid 255 for some Select membership, things I'll barely use if
at all. I told him it was in his interest to end the phone call, so he
could talk to someone who might actually buy it, but he was unconvinced.
I'm glad I'm not a telephone marketer. He had a great voice.
Sorry that the story is so anti-climactic. The End.
After all this.... they said for early checkin have to call the hotel
Asked them about bathtubs. They said all the rooms except those on one
floor have bathtubs. What a waste of time this has been. Next time,
call the hotel itself. .....We'll see if she's right.
For early checkin, I have to ask when I get there.
Took the words right out of my mouth, really!
Let's hope not. Less chance of us running into him whining and crying
at the front desk when he finds out that a full breakfast, lunch, dinner
and car detailing are not included in the valet parking package listed
I live in Dallas and could help out, but I'm enjoying this
There is a shit load of hotels where he wants to be, but
apparently has not figured out how to contact the hotel
directly and get his questions answered. This whole thread
is hilarious and just what I needed.
Until I was 10, the bathtub was surrounded with walls covered in
something linoleum, and it was coming up at the seam in the middle and
plaster would be knocked loose by the shower or a physical blow. For
some reason, my father didn't have it fixed. Maybe he liked baths.
So I got used to baths.
In college and Chicago, almost entirely I took showers for 6 years.
But in Brooklyn, the landlord didn't understand the cold water pumping
system in our 6-story building, didn't run it right, and when someone
flushed a toilet, (with a Flushometer), the cold water pressure plunged,
and the shower was too hot to bear. If you made it cooler, when the
cold pressure came back up, the water was too cold to bear. And the
bathtub was so big I could almost float in it. So that's 11 more years
with baths and no showers.
And now I'm hooked.
