You may be in your own world, but you're still in public!

Dear Hotel Guests,

While checking in, please try to go sixty seconds without answering your cell phone. I understand the desire is strong to carry on a menial conversation about leg waxing/oil changes/ baby poop or whatever the topic is of the moment, but I thought you were trying to rent a room.

If you do feel obligated to answer the phone, which you typically do, those behind you in line and those working the desk would appreciate it if you excused yourself for a moment. That way, we can all carry on with our lives without hearing the excruciating details of Uncle Jerry’s snoring problem.

It’s called courtesy. It’s not a myth.

Friendly Neighborhood Desk Clerk
