I recently made a reservation at an Inn in New England.
Just for a Get Away night. I need those every now and
Today in the mail I received a receipt from the Inn,
saying my room was paid for. Seeing as how I actually
remember paying, I just think this was a waste of paper.
But not a total waste, as the receipt presented a very
interesting bit of information.
Under “Room Type” is the room number and these words:
“Non Smoking Queen High Speed.” Seriously. If I could
scan the paper, I’d show you. The non smoking part I
understand. The Queen part? Hmmm. Am I going to be
“Queen For A Day?” Remember that TV show? The winner
usually ended up with a spa treatment or dish detergent
for a year, or some such thing. No thanks.
Okay, what’s with that “High Speed?” I only have two
speeds- slow and asleep. If I went into high speed, I’d
go into overload. Does it involve room service? As soon
as you hang up the phone after ordering, is there a knock
on the door? Do the curtains open really fast? Does the
house keeper clean up quickly? Are there only car races
available on the TV? I’ve never heard of a High Speed
This particular aspect of my room intrigues me.
What are your thoughts on this?
