What a week!

OH NO!  I spent the last forty or so minutes writing my post.  I used OpenOffice.org 2 to write the text.  I cut and pasted the text into the browser.  I decided to write some more.  I went back to OpenOffice, cleared the screen and started writing again.  

I cut and pasted the text into the browser and hit publish.  The only thing that published was the title.  The only text I can salvage from OpenOffice was the second part that I'd written. 

Here it is:

I decided that instead of trying to hold my breath for up to two days I'd move to a hotel for the duration of the fumigation.  I checked online for hotel offers.  I got a good deal at the Holiday Inn on the Bay.  I had an  interesting experience with this hotel two years ago.  I was attending a company conference along with up to 10,000 other employees and business partners.  Because of the large numbers of people it was a requirement that employees share rooms. 

The hotel decided to put me in a room that already had two people.  They neglected to tell me this.  When I arrived in the room I noticed two suitcases on each bed.  I thought my room mate was a cheeky bugger for putting his stuff on both beds.  Then it hit me.  I picked up the room phone and called reception.  I asked how many people were booked into this room and was informed that there were three people including me. 

There were only two beds in the room.  I mentioned that and was told that I should talk to the other gentlemen about the bedding arrangements!  I took my bags and went down to reception to sort this out.  I was told
'we have no rooms', a few times, then I was put into a room with a pull out bed for the night, on my own.  I left the hotel the next day. 

Shitty customer experience, free WiFi Internet access.  It was time to give them a second chance.

The first part contained fun, jokes, emotions, challenges, growth, enlightenment and resolutions. 

I'm not writing it again!
