Often it's weird & funny the incidents & experiences from travels. Below is an experience whilst on my first visit/stay at a holiday Inn in the Big Apple....
On a Sunday evening I check into the Holiday Inn - showered, had dinner - was about to hit the sack, when say around 10PM - I have a visitor (no not a woman) instead a huge fat New York City rodent – a rat.
It came from beneath the door and went underneath my bed. I freaked, called the reception, they sent some guy up to get rid of the rat and changed my room to Room 607!
Now get this, I get the keys to room# 607 - open the door – and to my horror & surprise see this big hairy ass guy, in his B'day suit out of the shower and(presumably) his wife sitting on the bed watching Television?
I am yelled at, I yell back - shut the door behind me and catch the elevator to the reception, give a piece of my mind to the poor soul at the font desk (who, simultaneously is getting it from the naked guy in 607 via the telephone). I am put up, in room 707 – however, hardly caught some sleep for fear of another "visitor"!
Did I mention the rate US$399.99 plus taxes/night – received zero comp for the horrors :(
To chin up, I wrote a casual poem (below) on the events. Welcome to big apple – I guess?
Big Apple Stay
rosh - he was on his bed,
rosh - sleeping the sleep of the dead,
HARK! suddenly, there was a sound, something was around,What was it?
could it be a girl, keen on a nocturnal tryst?
would rosh know what to do with her? Or would he just get pissed?
but wait – it was a female, thou not of the human kind,
was rosh paranoid enough that a rat would bump and grind? or would he be afraid and let out a scream?
rosh rushed down to the reception, not just angry but hopping mad,
he swore and he yelled - what the f**k is going on here?
he had a phobia of rats, you could sense his fear....
" we're sorry sir" said the dude at reception,
"'tis never happened before" says he trying deception,
there was a priest there, quietly looking towards heaven,
and the receptionist says " Sir, we're giving you room 607"
so rosh, relief spread across his face,
grabs the keys and to his new room does race
he wants to go back to sleep, get some rest,
but little did he know that fate had one more test,
he uses the key to room 607 - opens the door
there's someone in the room, some guy and his whore
the girl's sitting on the bed, watching TV, probably porn
and the guy's just standing around, naked as the day he was born
a few seconds of silence, 't was a comical situation for sure
rosh recovered from his shock and slammed the door
he ran to the lift, wondering what kind of people this hotel housed
as he could see the naked guy was all aroused!
rosh was disgusted, he was appalled,
so he went down to reception and the manager he called
"That's the limit man" say rosh in a very pissed tone,
" Just a minute sir, it's your naked friend on the phone""
We apologize Sir, of course we'll change your room again""
Ok, but no rats and no naked guys or gals please - they're really a pain""
Very well sir, we regret the trouble caused, it's a pity,
but enjoy your stay and welcome to New York City""
thank you, i think I'll be fine"" say rosh
oh Sir, here's your bill -that'll be $ 399"
