We'll shuttle you alright.

Dear Hotel Guests,

As a preface, you come here for the same reason as thousands of other tourists. Traffic is to be expected. I cannot predict the traffic.

That being said, asking me three times if you have to call the FREE shuttle in order for it to come back to the hotel isn’t going to change my answer. As soon has the people who arranged a shuttle ride ahead of you have been safely delivered to their destination, the FREE shuttle will return to the hotel, and then it will be your turn.

I gave you a rough estimate of when the FREE shuttle would return, but I can’t account for traffic fluctuations or a long line at the gas station. Now, when you come in for the fourth time, whining that you’ve been waiting for too long, I honestly don’t feel an ounce of sympathy towards your “predicament.”

It’s one thing if you had made an appointment for it, and it ended up late. But you didn’t. You just showed up and expected it to be ready for you that very instant. The beach isn’t going anywhere.

Maybe next time you want to somewhere stat, ride your high horse instead.
