South Dakota Fun

Tourists, uh, upset me at times. Obnoxious, rude, etc. It bothers me more than it should I know. But, sometimes it's fun to know that I am still ahead of them.

There were several of us waiting to check into the hotel this evening. As I stood in line some were upset that it was taking so long. When checking in there are several things that need to be done; name, address, phone #, credit card, etc. Sometimes the computer cannot take all the information in a second.

The couple in front of me had no reservation, so they ended up paying the full amount, $109.00. The people behind me were amazed when it took me about 22 seconds to check in and my rate is $71.00. It's good to be a frequent guest.

Oh, and I am in a suite with a kitchenette.

Life is good!

As a retired Air Force Tech Sergeant, I try to stay at the TLF (Temporary Lodging Facility) of the nearest military base.
Of course, it doesn't always work out, if the base is hosting training for reservists/national guard, since as a retiree, I can only check in on a "space available" basis.

Is this when I could have seen you but couldn't? I'm sorry. I miss you, Crab. I do.
