A flight attendant checked into her layover hotel on Houston and discovered that a previous guest had tried to thwart the high-tech anti-smoking device that was installed when the place was built in 1977.
From a flight attendant on a layover in El Paso, where she found a framed picture covered in some kind of crud: “Not sure why these pretty pictures of flowers that were hung at least 6 feet off floor above the desk had some stain of some sort rained down on them. Have suspicions but didn’t want to say out loud….”
Flight attendants get training in more than keeping their passengers safe, but also on how to be safe when traveling and laying over. So it was pretty easy to spot this anomaly at an Uncomfortable Inn where she’d been assigned the inevitable handicapped room: the lower peephole at wheelchair-level was pointed IN. She reported it and changed the rooms.
From a flight attendant on layover in Odessa, where the seat was just sitting on the toilet bowl. Came right off. This is a new one.
It’s never a good sign when the previous brand’s shuttle van is sitting, abandoned, broken into and rusting in a corner of the parking lot. “Holiday Inn” can barely be seen through the paint. At a Marriott in San Antonio.
