I’ve just returned from spending a few days in Florida. I stayed at the The Gaylord Palms ….I know…I know! I laughed at the name too!
While checking in I was told to make sure to keep the key card away from my cell phone, because it might de-activate the card.
So I carefully placed my key card into a pocket inside my purse.
The next day I decided to spend some time by the pool.
When I went back to my room, I discovered my key card didn’t work…Humm…
So I went back to the lobby and told them what had happened,
they were very polite and made me a new card. They told me if it ever happened again to pick up one of the house phones and someone would help me,
I didn’t need to go all the way to the lobby.
Back to my room I go to try once again.
Guess what? My new key still didn’t work!!
So now I had to find a house phone and call in my problem.
Once again they were very polite and told me to wait in front of my room and someone would come to help me.
I waited about 10 to 15 minutes for someone to come, and then I heard the sound of something big walking down the hallway.
This guy was huge…he was like a walking wall…6..foot high…5 feet wide..
and of course a shaved head.
(what kind of security dude would he be without a shaved head?)
( PS..he was much bigger than the above picture)
First thing he asks for is my key and some I.D.
He tries the key, and of course it doesn’t work.
(I may be blond…but I know how to use a key card!)
Next he calls the front desk to see if I’m registered.
Yes…I’am…but this guy wants more proof.
He asks me to tell him about 3 items that are in the room. WHAT???
So I mention…
#1…I have 2 pieces of grey luggage.
#2…I have a large beige purse.
#3…The bedspread has pictures of monkeys playing instruments.
Is it just me,
or does the idea of monkeys dressed in clothes freak anyone else out?
It just seems so wrong to me on so many levels!
(what is that monkey to the left doing, and why is his hand on the other monkey?)
What happens at the Gaylord Palms, stays at the Gaylord Palms?
The whole time that I’m being questioned by the security dude, he is blocking the door so I can’t look in.
After I name my 3 items he goes into the room to check out my answers.
He comes back and asks me if I have a tooth brush ???
Yes, as a matter of fact I have 2 pink toothbrushes.
He goes back into the room to make sure I wasn’t telling him a lie.
He comes back and lets me in my room.
All he said was…
“Someone will bring you 2 new keys and will slide them under the door.”
I must look like someone that can’t be trusted.
I guess I should consider myself lucky, I wasn’t fed to the alligators.
See ya later…Wally Gator!
