New Year, New Resolution

So one of my resolutions this new year is to not get so upset while driving. Well, I am doing better. But, I was reading my favorite book again, and found one of my favorite lines. Norman Maclean and his brother are fighting with a whore that had gotten drunk with Norman's brother-in-law. Maclean said, "Suddenly I developed a passion to kick a woman in the ass. It was a passion I never knew existed before."

So in the spirit of this great line, I am going to start a weekly tradition. I am going to start my weekly Person I Would Like To Kick In The Ass award.

This week's winner:

Traveler from Seattle.

I was on last night trying to find a nice hotel for the honeymoon. Well, while looking at the guest review of the Knickerbocker. Well, Traveler from Hotel gave the hotel a crap rating and a 8 sentence paragraph about how the hotel sucked because he couldn't figure out how to work the coffee machine and no one knew what the word "carafe" was. Dude, don't be that guy. The guy that a coffee snob. Seriously. Live a little. Drink an Old Style and be quiet.

Here is his right up.

The coffeemakers have no carafe. You simply put the cup underneath and it brews one cup at a time. That's OK, except the two people I talked to on my first day did not know how to operate them and did not seem to understand the word "carafe". They were gracious enough to send me a cup of coffee from room service, and I appreciated that. The 2nd day the desk clerk was able to explain how to get that precious one cup made. There was only enough coffee for one small cup. The 3rd day my coffee supply had not been replenished and the coffee making area still had my torn splenda packet from the day before. I'm from Seattle and I need my coffee. One small cup for a lot of hassle doesn't do it for me.

At least he could figure out the rating systems. Some people couldn't figure out if 1 was the highest rating or 5 was the highest rating.

I mean, in his defense, they do take their coffee pretty seriously there. You know they invented Starbucks, right?

i have to agree with you, I was really difficult to find a good hotel because everyone was a snob on the ratings sites. People were literally complaining about things that the hotel had no control over. Pretentious bastards...

Oregon is the real problem here I think.

Seattle is in Washington, Stu.

But the hotel in question was in Oregon correct?
