In the lobby again and there's only about five or six of us total. Either the hotel is really empty or most of the people decided to stay in their rooms. I occupy my time with my Droid phone and just kind of observe everyone around me. One man comes downstairs yelling at the two behind the counter, saying he had been told everything was all clear and then he was forced out of his room by the firemen. All I can think is, "Dude, getting upset won't help. They're just trying to look out for you." I think he even asked for a refund.
After about ten minutes, four of the firemen converge in the lobby. First thing I notice? None of them are over 35 years old. This struck me as weird but whatever. Turns out a false alarm had happened before; a water pipe had burst in the attic setting off the alarm. On the way out of the hotel one of the fireman stops and says "That tree is so cool," referring to the Christmas tree by the door. Only reason I put that in is because it just didn't seem to fit with the whole scene.
And that's how my weekend started off. How is yours?
