My coworker Matt showed up last night. I went up to the counter to pick up some laundry as he was checking in. As he passed the holiday inn worker his credit card, she reached into the pile of ‘checking in’ folders and handed him his. In with it was a little envelope.

Holiday Inn girl:
“Every week we have a weekly raffle drawing, and this week you won! Here’s your prize”
Mike D: “Wait. WHAT?! WHAT?! This is his FIRST TIME TO OHIO! I’ve been here for FOUR MONTHS and I have never won the weekly prize.”
Holiday Inn girl: “I’m sorry sir.”
Mike D: “BAH! this is ridiculous. what is the prize?”
Holiday Inn girl: “it’s a restaurant gift certificate.”

Ridiculous. Completely ridiculous.

    Meh, I won a free pizza from a Holiday Inn raffle during one of my trips to blOhio and I never even used it. When you’re on the road, work pays for your meals so a restaurant gift certificate (particularly if it’s local as you’ll never be in blOhio for anything other than work) is a moot point.

    Are you sure that the holiday inn girl just wasn’t into Matt and not you?

    I’m telling you, this girl clearly doesn’t understand about your near-platinum Holiday Inn status.

    How many Holiday Inn points do you need before they announce your arrival with trumpets and a red carpet?
