I Actually Control the Power Grid

Dear Hotel Guests,

Do I know if the power is going to go out? Seriously? How pray tell, do you expect me to know this? The name tag says guest services, not resident psychic.

While we are on the subject, no, I don't know when the net or cable will be back. Looks like you're going to have entertain yourselves the old fashioned way.

Back office, public computer room. Same thing!

Dear Hotel Guests,

The back office looks nothing like the business center. I think the fact that it is behind the front desk, with a coded lock on the heavy wooden door should be enough of a give away.

If you either wait for me to get off the phone with another guest to assist you, or open your eyes to see the directional sign dead ahead before marching straight in, you'll save yourself a lot of embarrassment.
