I guess it makes sense to paint hotel room doors during the South by Southwest convention. I mean, every hotel is at capacity, but people aren’t in their rooms during the day, right? And that wallpaper you re-glued, I’m sure no one is going to bump drunkenly into it at night!
And high speed wi-fi probably isn’t that important, either. Everyone’s just there to drink! No one is trying to get work done. Work for which fast Internet is required. Those housekeeping hours were a little weird, though. Our maid tried to come at 3 p.m. one day and 8 a.m. the other? Odd. But cool! Austin’s way laid back!
But if I call you at 9 p.m. the night before my flight and request a cab for 9:15 in the morning, it would be awesome if your valet didn’t come up to me to advise me to walk three blocks away to hail one. (That cabbie, by the way, ignored the meter and made three people pay $20 each on a $27 fare. Not your problem, I know! I just wanted to work that in. Guess he didn’t realize he was driving a New Yorker with a receipt that included his driver number and the company’s phone number!)
I did enjoy my view of the interstate and two gas stations, though! Good planning! And that breakfast you served was inspiring. Don’t take it personally that I made a special trip to IHOP after my first tasting. Totally unrelated.
