There is literally an endless list of challenges that Fate throws up in front of The Hook on a daily basis. Here is a quick rundown of a few choice ones.
TOURIST MATH : A guest approaches the Bell Desk, stained gym bags, laundry baskets and coolers in tow. The following exchange usually takes place.
Tourist: Can you hold our bags?
The Hook: Certainly, how many bags do you have?
Tourist: (Sighing that math is involved) Let’s see..
At this point is important to note that tourists don’t like to count unless it involves alcohol, casino winnings or food.
Tourist: 1..2..3 (Long pause, during which The Hook foolishly assumes the guest is done and retrieves 3 luggage tags)..8!
The Hook: (Struggling to contain his growing frustration) Okay,,sir, I’ll just go get a Bell Cart for your luggage.
Tourist: You mean a rolly thing?
The Hook: (Shuddering inside) Yes sir, a rolly thing.
See you in the lobby, kids…
