... hotel reservations for the Feb exam. Maybe a change of venue will improve my luck. After all, the DoubleTree has a "Pass or Don't Pay" policy, don't they? I thought everyone did. I could be wrong though.
I asked for the "Lucky" room. They told me that "that type of behavior" was illegal. I wonder what they meant?
I also asked if I could register in the name of someone who passed in July. They looked at me suspiciously and told me that I could only register in my own name. "Of course, of course", I replied. "Of course I passed in July, but I stayed at the Sheraton across the street", "I'm only making this reservation because I want to relive the exhilarating experience in a truly high-class hotel!" After that comment they said I would have to take a breathalyzer test before they would confirm my reservation. Then after I blew a 0.0 they told me that the consumption of "recreational pharmaceuticals" was another activity that was frowned upon. They sure do have a nice German Shepard though. I was assured that he was only sniffing me for explosive residue. "Yeah, sure", I thought. "Like someone would have anything against a bunch of prospective lawyers." After the dog had his way with me I came to the conclusion that they must have broken out the Christmas Egg Nog a little early, so I suggested that they take the breathalyzer test. They told me to leave now or they really would cancel my reservation. Maybe I should be staying at the Motel 6. I'm sure that Tom Bodett would not have been so rude.
But I've got my room and that's the important thing.
