    Default Not my fault...this time.

    Many of you are aware of my escapades....particularly locking myself out of the house more recently. Well, the joke is when my wife goes out of town on business, she has my daughter call and check up on me. Huh ? What...am I 12 years old ? I mean...I don't care how old or young you are...sh$t happens, we even have bumper stickers proclaiming such.

    So my wife goes to Jersey for a few days....daughter calls me like clock work. I tell her to stop...or I won't answer the damn phone. Later the next day, the wife calls.

    Apparently, late at night she orders some room service....eat a little something before going to bed after a long day. She goes to put the tray outside the door and her nighty gets caught on the door handle. She yanks it and the door closes behind her. Mind you, this nighty is fairly see threw, all white and she's naked as a new born baby under. A Chinese women comes down the hall, but doesn't speak a lick of English. She goes to get a book to try and translate and they spend 20 minutes in the hall before my wife finally conveys to her to get help from the hotel staff. The Chinese lady hits the elevator....but never comes back. My wife waited for 20 minutes before thinking she had to do this herself. She grabs a napkin from her tray to hold over her boobs and hits the elevator praying nobody wants to get on before she hit the lobby. Once she hits the lobby, she notices a group of 3 women outside the elevator, Australians.....who realize her dilemma and form a wall around her. One casually walks to the front desk to get help and finally she's back in the room.

    Now....I need a call....I need to be checked on ? Nay..Nay...I should be calling her every night to make sure she didn't lock herself out. That she carry a cell phone at least walking out of the room. Perfect pair we are huh.

    You will need to be checked on by a fellow Polkie for a very long time if she ever learns you posted her dilemma here for all the world to see.

    I've licked the hotel key card and stuck it to my forehead when doing something similar just to avoid this from happening.



    You think she's embarrassed, imagine how dumb I'D feel standing in the hallway in my skimpy nighty! D:

    John...John...John....your silence, your permanent silence....question is what's that worth to you ? Tomatoes are going in soon, can never have too much organic material in the garden.

    Just so happens the wife is on a 2 day ordeal in Kentucky. We shall see if any mishaps take place this round. Before the hotel ordeal I just described, last time in Houston she brought her rental car back....to the wrong airport. Then discovered she left her credit card in the restaurant after a business meeting. Poor woman has a lot on her plate....then there's me.

    BTW...daughter called me tonight, obviously to check up on me......I didn't answer the damn phone.

    Very funny Tony. Be careful, things like this can happen in groups of 3. So you got one more coming your way.
