Any perfume used to cover up the smell of something unpleasant might work in the short term. But after decades of application, a windowless room ain’t exactly going to smell like a rose garden.
Whatever it was, this deodoriser used in room 21 was nigh on toxic. There should be an exposure standard set for this substance. How long will it take before the chemicals surpass overpowering odours and turn against the human occupants? Will someone have to die of asphyxiation before something gets done?
Motel room 21 assaulted the Grinder’s sinuses for three consecutive nights. It was like being chained to the fragrance counter in Myers without the commission keen chicks vying for attention.
With no windows and only a glass ‘sliding’ door (more on the door next), I believe some of the air in that room was older than me and staler than the contents of Grindling #2’s forgotten lunch box recently recovered from the cubby house.
As for the glass door, even a reincarnated JC himself would have struggled to cast aside the friction brake equipped glass partition and emerge gasping for air having risen miraculously from the depths of room 21.
And if those Iraqi POWs think the US goalkeepers treated them unfairly, then maybe they’d like to spend a night locked up with bar fridge from room 21.Sleep deprivation is assured with the 25 minutes cycling time of the compressor. Starting up with a thud, humming nicely for about 5 minutes and before stopping with another thud and metallic rattle.
I would be interested to hear what this particular innkeeper’s definition of ‘sanitized’ is. A paper band placed neatly across the toilet seat lid doesn’t do much for me, and even less when there are still hairs in the toilet.
Oh and here’s a tip Mr motel man. If you’re going to provide tea and coffee making facilities, maybe consider providing a kettle that can fit under the tap of the hand basin.
And how’s his for a concept. Ask people if they have a preferred wakeup or checkout time. Then use this information to separate people who rise at 5:30 AM from those who were out working until 2:00 AM.
And finally, door keys. Let’s get this one clear okay. At least half the population do not carry hand bags. So just where am I supposed to put a key ring the size of a small plate when I’m not in my room?
