Snakes in a Hotel Room
Carol's recent blog about the low numbers of visitors to the United States suggested some reasons why foreigners are staying away, but she neglected to mention one possibility: deadly snakes in our hotels.
As an animal lover, I'm saddened by the wanton disregard for these creatures, but I also cringe when I think about the poor housekeeping staff. What might a chambermaid have thought when she heard a rattling sound coming from one of those vinyl bags against the wall? And what if one of the snakes had escaped?
I watch enough TV to know that strange things happen in hotel rooms, but the only thing close to strange and scandalous behavior I've ever encountered in a hotel was hearing an amorous couple in the room next door.
We've heard horror stories about hotel room disasters (screaming kids, rude staff, theft), but I want to know: Have you ever witnessed bizarre activities at a hotel?
Or has anyone actually stayed at the Hy-Way Motel?
