We’ve stayed at our share of hotels over the years and eventually you’ll encounter something strange during one of your stays. For example, while we were standing at a Candlewood Suites front desk, the agent received a panicked call. While a hotel guest was in the shower, the entire bathroom mirror fell off the wall and shattered onto the bathroom floor.
Imagine being in the shower and this thing crashes onto the floor. If you didn’t have a heart attack, your next thought would be, “how am I going to get out of the shower, naked, without recreating the scene with Bruce Willis walking through glass shards from Die Hard?”
I was reminded of this while listening to the Comedy Central station on Sirius XM in my car. (by the way, here’s how to get a discount on your Sirius XM renewal.) A bit from Mike Birbiglia came on about him talking about his sleep disorder and how it caused him to jump through a second-story window of a La Quinta Inn.
While this must have been terrifying for him, I can only imagine if I were one of the other guests at the hotel and hearing breaking glass at 3am, only to look out to the parking lot and see a man running around, bleeding, in his underwear.
For safety, Mike now will only sleep on the first floor at hotels. To be honest, that’s probably one of the more reasonable requests hotels have to deal with. These, on the other hand, maybe not so much.
