I'm in Washington DC this week helping a client with some content development for a site we're about to launch. I'm staying at a Red Roof Inn in Chinatown. While I was checking in, these three things happened:
- A girl came down to say "Okay, thanks...our shower finally started working. But our toilet still hasn't flushed since we got here. Lucky we have friends down the hall."
- A man was waiting for the elevator the entire time I was checking in. "I've been here for twenty minutes," he said. Bless his heart, it was broken. I took the stairs.
- A cop came in to resolve a "disturbance" on the third floor. "Please don't make a scene," the front desk lady requested of him as she handed me my room key.
