The Stupidest Thing I Have Ever Encountered In A Hotel.

This was at the ‘Machias River Inn’, in Machias, Maine, last week. On the whole quite a nice & salubrious motel — with large, clean, spacious rooms. Yes, I got one of the better ones, on the 2nd floor, with a river view.

I was going to be staying for 3-nights so I opted to unpack & hang up my clothes — rather than just living out of my bag (which I what I do on shorter stays).

Then I encountered this clothes hanger setup. You could immediately tell that it was fairly new & not cheap.

Do you see the flaw?

No, I did not take off any hangers. That was the full set.

I talked to reception about it. No one had, ever, mentioned it before. They knew it was fairly new & that the owner had picked it.

I happened to mention it to the Maintenance guy with whom I became quite friendly. He had installed — ‘within the year’. He had noticed IT, but it not feel that it was his place to say anything in that the owner had picked it.

How stupid & short-sighted can you be.

It is also not a sexist thing. Women, especially up here in New England, wear pants.

The Looming WINE SHORTAGE: Most Devastating Shortage Of Them ALL.

by Anura Guruge

Quick Google confirmed my worst FEARS.

Ye Gods!

This is BEYOND my worst nightmare.

Toilet paper shortage. Bothered me none. I always knew I could lay my hands on some kind of paper or get a bidet.

Metamucil shortage. There were alternatives.

WINE SHORTAGE! That is serious. This is no joke. Yes, NOT entirely COVID related. Californian wildfires. Yes, prices have already gone up.

Should I stock up. I should. BUT, herein lies the problem. I will just drink MORE. So, it will be gone. Then WHAT?

Then WHAT?

Maybe I could — maybe I should — now that I am officially old start drinking brandy. That is an idea. I think I could survive on brandy. What do YOU think.


Ye Gods.
