dear marriott of overland park, kansas:
i really, really wanted to like you. i had this VERY VERY awesome plan, see. and here it was. I WANT TO EMPHASIS THE PAST TENSE OF THIS PLAN. i was to arrive tonight (as i did). i had a plan of room service and a glass of vino. then! i would wake up whenever the hell i felt like it, go for a run, then lounge by the pool in 93-degree heat until 11am CST which would translate to 9am PST. that would have been awesome, right? then i would have showered, done some work and then gone around the corner to facilitate focus groups. i guess that's why i'm here, anyway.
when i checked in, your front desk person had some bad news! no water in the WHOLE ENTIRE HOTEL after 9a tomorrow because a water main or somesuch thing burst. and it won't be back on for ohhhh 4-5 HOURS. and he said, "will it be a problem for you to complete your showering, etc. by that time?" YES IT WILL BE A PROBLEM BECAUSE NOW I HAVE TO BE DONE SHOWERING BY 9AM. this means NO POOL TIME, MUTHA EFFERS! @$*&^!$!&($^(.
i checked into my room and it smells funny. like sweat socks. oh and also? everything is under construction. like the whole facade of the hotel (so i drove by it like, oh three times trying to find it) and the whole parking lot.
eff you, marriott of overland park, kansas. eff you!
so, anyway. the night isn't a total loss. your "pitchers" sports bar downstairs makes some REALLY delicious chicken wings. and you have a decent wine selection. also, i just finished watching the season premiere of BIG BROTHER 10 on cbs.com. and that makes me happy. so again, all is not lost.
so i hate you, still. but maybe we can find a way to be friends.
the girl who likes chicken wings and sauvingnon blanc and really, really wanted some pool time in the 93-degree heat tomorrow. but whatever. i guess i will just WORK all day long.
