There’s a dichotomy to life in a thousand-room hotel, folks.
On one hand, our guests are here to relax and forget all about the Rat Race. (In theory, at least.) Their goal is to adopt a nice leisurely pace instead of racing around like headless egg producers.
To be clear, I’m referring to chickens, not decapitated farmers…
On the other hand, as a bellman, I cannot afford to adopt a leisurely pace. Doing so would result in absolute chaos. Slow bellman don’t last very long in the hotel biz.
So I’ve adopted a motto: “When you think fast, think of The Hook!”
So where does the Wednesday wisdom come into play, you ask? Well, let’s just say it’s never wise to use a catchphrase like mine before getting “romantic” with the wife.
It does not go over well. So what you don’t say is as important as what you do.
See you in the lobby, kids…
