I'm on the road again, this time heading for Port Canaveral. These images are of the first day driving from Cincinnati to Atlanta.
last trip to Atlanta when My Honey was driving and I could take pictures in all directions. ;)
I got to the hotel, logged on, checked out my blog, read through blogger-friend's sites, and got ready for bed. Then it happened....
Before I go any further, I just want everyone to know I love kids. I really LOVE kids. I had three of my own who are now grown and now have six grand kids. I love them, but I also expect them to behave. I don't know about any other times, but when they are with me, they behave.
...and now, back to my story:
The American Little League had 20 rooms in the hotel. According to their t-shirts, they were all from Georgia. Great kids, but WILD. The sad part about the whole thing was they were so out of control and their parents didn't seem to care.
I rarely complain, but I did this time. I called the desk and asked that the people in the room above mine be asked to stop screaming, running, and jumping over my head. I didn't even mention the ones running up and down the hall outside my room. I figured they would go into a room above or below someone else who would call.
The man at the desk was very nice and immediately said he would be happy to call them. He offered to move me to another room. No, thank you. It was 8 PM, I had had my shower and was ready to settle down and go to sleep so I could get up early. Anyway, I'm not the one causing the problem. Why should I move?
He called upstairs. Then he called me back and told me he had called them and asked them to be quiet. I thanked him. It got a little more quiet for at least five minutes.
I planned to be up about 6AM and out at 7AM, but that wasn't going to happen. The kids were still wild at 11PM, then they calmed down just long enough for me to start to fall asleep before someone would scream and jump again.
I have a suggestion for Hampton Inns: put the kids in their own wing of the hotel, not on their own floor where they will bother people above and below them. I have a suggestion for the American Little League: rent a camp site.
Tune in tomorrow to find out how very lucky I got the next night! *chuckles*
You won't believe it....
