Its KEY

Is that your luggage

Don’t we all have some? We even drag it around with us on vacation — don’t we? Not to mention our suitcases, which are also usually in tow.

Do you know the difference between the two? One should be left at home and the other should be neatly packed with changes of clothes. Right?

Recently I read a very comical and insightful novel entitled: The Bellman Chronicles, by Robert Hookey. If you’re a well-read wordpress blogger or a former (or frequent) hotel guest, you may know him as ‘The Hook’.

You haven’t met him? Then by all means, let me introduce you. The following write is a reblog of his.

It’s one chronicle account of ‘a day in the life of a bellman’. The Hook is a bellman. He’s the one carrying your suitcase and often times than not, he’s carrying your luggage too.

Enjoy the reblog and Have a Fantastic Hump Day. I’m already in route.

Apologies, Corporate Bigwigs and Business as Usual

CORPORATE BIGWIG: Excuse me, I need to speak to you about my car –

THE HOOK: Certainly, sir. You need to speak to the gentleman over there (I pointed across the hall) you’ll save yourself time. I wouldn’t want you to have to repeat yourself.

CB: (In a loud, “Get me some coffee, maggot!” voice) I HAVE NO INTENTION OF REPEATING MYSELF! YOU’RE GOING TO HELP ME NOW! I HAVE BUSINESS TO RUN AND MEETINGS TO ATTEND! I KNOW WHAT I’M DOING, DO YOU?

THE HOOK: I know which desk I’m manning. Do you?
And with that, I pointed at the sign perched upon my desk that reads “BELL DESK“. Once again, I wish I could capture these moments…

CB: (After much pondering) Well, this must be a very satisfying moment for you…

THE HOOK: I have to admit, sir, my morning was pretty dull until a moment ago.
Corporate Bigwig took $10 from the pocket of his expensive raincoat and slapped it on the desk.

He then gathered up his files and suitcase, tucked his corporate tail between his legs and headed off to the actual Valet Desk.

Some people think money can negate stupidity and a lack of consideration for one’s fellow man.

Those people are right.

  1. Keeping us on our toes. Hospitality should always begat hospitality, but sometimes… and some people… 🙂

  2. It is truly a pleasure to READ and introduce others to your delightful and literal mind as well as your chronicling bind. It’s good to LAUGH at ourselves and our behaviors at the hotel. lol!

  3. Great reblog! i don’t think I can ever thank you enough for your warmth and generosity of spirit – but I’ll never stop trying…
