Wriggle to Create Heat

Just when you think you've seen or heard it all......I was working the "C" position this morning from Portland to Orange County.  "C" position is the back galley.  On a Boeing 737-700 aircraft.  A had seen a large group in the boarding area...maybe 20 or so teenagers with obligatory adults along to tame the errant young tendencies.  So the first guy on board is wearing a green Portland Timbers t-shirt and heads to the back galley.  Seemed like a nice enough guy, friendly, chatty.  And he says to me....."Hey, my wife is going to kill me....she said for me not to come back here and ask you this but I told her I was going to do it anyway......is there any chance you'd go up and warm up my seat for me before I sit down?"  I told him to just let his wife watch this.....I marched my tender, yet silly, little early morning self up to his row, asked him which seat was his and sat down in it.  I wriggled around a little....."to create friction and heat," I told him.  His wife was looking at me like I was about as far out of my ever lovin' mind as one mildly delusional flight attendant could possibly get.  He sort of liked it.  "Yeah, like that.....okay, that's good," he says.  And I got up and left.  His wife staring.  He and I giggling.  In my 16 years....that's a first.

Nothing like the joys of working with the public.

Nothing surprises me with what the public expects. But this is a first. As you may or may not know, I work at a hotel front desk. This was a job I took after I retired from my 37 year banking job. I thought working the front desk of a hotel would be interesting. I wasn't wrong! I've worked at The Hampton Inn (120 rooms), the Marriott Residence Inn (96 rooms) and now I work at a beach resort high end 'boutique hotel" or 22 rooms and 2 VIP suites. For ten years now I've worked at hotels. Just when I think I've seen everything, something new happens. Unfortunately I can't write about most of it in my blog because the owner and manager of where I work now read my blog plus many of my hotel guests (my big mouth, I tell some of my favorites I have a blog). But someday, SOMEDAY I will TELL ALL. And as I often tell my friends "You just can't make this stuff up!" Would I have any other job in my retirement years? No way! I never know what is coming through that door or what they're going to ask or request. Never.

You forgot the "And then we had sex in the rear lavatory" part!

I think I might classify that as going above and beyond... I'm such a wise ass, I'd probably have tried to pass wind. Maybe its best that I don't serve the public.
