The English Teacher Has Died

1:06 am · category: Hotel Hell

Tonight at the hotel I got a call at the front desk. The gentleman who was calling told me that he had returned to his room and his companion was unconscious and unresponsive. I called 911. We found out the woman had ODed. She had done this while she was alone in her room with her 18-month-old son. It was very sad.

After I hung up the 911 call, I realized that twice I had told the operator that the gentleman and I were unable to arouse the woman. That’s right: I said “arouse” instead of “rouse,” as if we were… you know… to wake her up.

I used to say the English teacher in me is dying a slow death. I believe she’s officially dead.
