I went to get my complimentary continental breakfast this morning. In the front of the hotel? Motel? Anyway...(I guess I should have known better)
I noticed this skinny blond sitting in the front room with one of those big old 17” laptops. She wasn’t what I would call spectacularly beautiful, not even very pretty. But nice if you like very skinny blond types...Not really my type, if I were working specifically from a body type. Which I don’t. She was in the corner. Alone.
Any way from my room the WiFi connection is spectacularly S-l-o-w. Almost like dial up. So after I finished eating and had cleaned up my mess, I stuck my head in the door and said in my most polite and good morningly voice, “excuse me, Are you having trouble with the WiFi connection in your room? It is so slow in mine that it might as well be dial-up!”
She looked up, frowned (Warning T’s!) and said, “I haven’t really tried. It must be the location.” *As if I didn’t know that*
“Well I’m right up front here and-”
She said something in a low voice that I didn’t quite catch, “excuse me?” I inquired.
Her expression and tone said it all. I still didn’t quite catch all she said, but the tail end was, “...and I would appreciate it if you would leave me alone...”
My blood ran cold...And my tone and expression said it all, too...”Well excuse me. I’m sorry to have bothered you, ma’am. I hope you have a better day, than your morning seems to be going.” With that I turned and walked away, and out the front door to have a smoke and cool off. Saw her eyebrows shoot up out of the corner of my eye as I rounded he corner.
Why do people have to be that way? I wasn’t trying to pick her up or anything like that. As I said, she wasn’t my type. Did she have to try and make me as pissed off as she seemed to be? Whatever...Just needed to get that off my chest.
I am pretty sure a Wombat has better social skills...
