So why am I writing this at 2:00 in the morning when I need to be up in 4 hours?
Because I forgot. I completely forgot.
I forgot that every time I stay in a hotel for business I end up having some lame ass problem that totally screws up my sleep for the night.
So what is it this time?
1:00 a.m. - As I sleep in a blissful coma my phone suddenly starts ringing. But by the time I am conscious enough to figure out what the hell is going on to answer it, it stops. So I close my eyes and go back to sleep.
1:05 a.m. - My phone rings again. This time I answer it right away but no one says anything on the other end. So I begin to worry that someone is trying to reach me for something important and I call the front desk to ask Ben if he has patched an outside call through to my room. As I'm talking to him, my phone rings again - on line 2. But because my phone has 37 buttons on it, I have no idea how to answer it.
Ok, first of all - why the hell does my hotel phone need to have 2 lines, a hold, mute and speaker phone button. This is a stupid hotel room, not a friggen call center. Here's what I need in a hotel phone - kay?
1:10 - I almost fall back asleep when it rings again. And now I'm fed up.
"Oh, I'm sorry. I must have the wrong number." *click*
And that, my friends - is why I'm writing this at 2:00 in the morning.
Oh look... it's 2:30 now.
