It may be Valentine’s Day weekend, but there’s little love in my heart right now.
But only because love can’t pierce the layer of Canadian ice surrounding my ticker at the moment. Not only is it unbelievably-cold, but guests have been insanely-rude today. A young couple even stiffed me AND somehow ripped me off for five bucks today!
How cold is it in Niagara Falls right now? Well…
I had an epiphany while standing on the Valet deck in the frigid cold, with the wind whistling through parts of me best left to the imagination. I’m willing to work hard for the money – like, Donna Summers hard – but there are limits. And after a middle-aged couple kept me waiting for fiteen full minutes in the frozen Canadian wasteland that is the hotel’s Valet deck? Well, I’d reached my limit. And so, when they finally emerged from their vehicle and popped their trunk so I could unload their luggage for check-in, I decided to make the situation clear.
Sparkling crystal clear.
“I’m going to tell you what the wife tells me every night… You have a minute to do what you have to do… then I’m done.”
Needless to say, they were stunned. But they eventually complied.
Yes, it’s really been that cold in Niagara Falls, Canada, today. And I’ve had enough.
See you in the lobby, kids…
