Hockey Getting Hickey

, , , , , , | Right | March 7, 2020

(I’m at work at the front desk of a hotel a couple of days after Valentine’s Day. We have four teams who are competing in a youth hockey tournament staying in the hotel over the weekend. I am chatting with one of our housekeepers about how absolutely crazy the weekend has been when we have this little conversation.)

Housekeeper #1: “Yeah, this weekend was nuts! [Housekeeper #2] said next year she is booking the 15th off. She said she’s never cleaned so much [male bodily fluid] before.”

Me: “Really?”

Housekeeper #1: “Yeah. I told her that the hockey tournament could be on a different weekend next year, so booking the 15th off wouldn’t necessarily make any difference.”

Me: “Yeah, I don’t see why she would book the 15th off specifically, either.”

Housekeeper #1: “I didn’t at first, either, when I asked her she said, ‘The 15th always follows the 14th. Did you seriously forget what holiday yesterday was?’”

(Yep, two of us were so clueless that we just assumed a housekeeper would have that issue from a Novice — young enough they don’t keep score — GIRLS’ hockey tournament!)
