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.
