Reason #462 That I Should Not Be Allowed in Public

So Friday morning I wake up in the hotel (S was at a meeting at this point...he travels for work and I tag along) and I decided to go on a quest for ice.

The last place we stayed required you to call room service to bring you ice (this was only my second favorite thing about that hotel, by the way) so I was curious how it worked at this hotel. I looked in the booklets in the room (you know the books with all of the services and where crap is and who to call and all of that) and found NOTHING so I peeked out the door, saw no people, grabbed my room key and went exploring.

This is the point in the story where I mention what I was wearing...I have this stupid coverup thing that was marketed by Forever 21 as a dress (hint: actually not a dress) and it covers all of the necessary parts, although not very well. I figured I was well enough covered to go on an ice quest...I am sure you can see where this is going...

Well I found no ice and no housekeeping staff to ask and I refused to call down to the desk. So I go to return to the room and...

MY EFFING KEY DOESN'T WORK.

I have no choice but to walk down to the lobby in my ensemble and explain to the lady behind the front desk that my key wasn't working and I was locked out of my room (in the elevator I was able to get a quick glance at myself in the mirror...I forgot to mention that we went out the night before and I was too lazy to remove my makeup before bed and had an interesting mascara smudge situation happening). She proceeds to ask me if I have any identification (valid concern if you saw my face...I would question me). She asks me to sit down WHILE SHE CALLS SECURITY ON ME.

Let me also take a minute to say that we were not staying at a Best Western.

Long story short, security had to escort me to my room where I had to prove my identity to be let back in. Needless to say, I did not take advantage of my complimentary breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Awkward.

Oh and I later found out that I had to call housekeeping for the damn ice.

I have done this before when I was setting the room service tray outside the door and it shut on me - slinky nightown and no shoes!! MORTIFYING.

AHHHHHH! OMG! I love this! It's hysterical! Don't things just always happen like this???
((stupid Forever 21...its all fun to pay less, until you rely on an outfit to stand up to more than two washes or cover you up when needed))

I can't believe that she called security on you. I would have had some choice words for her.

Who knew that housekeeping had ice, that is so out of the norm.

LOL, that's hilarious. I would have been furious with the lady, so I think you handled it pretty well. Adding you to my must reads.
