Hotel Guest: “Is there a way to take the phone off the hook so that it doesn’t ring?”

Me: “Well, you could always… take the phone off the hook, so that it doesn’t ring. But, yes, I can put the phone on a do not disturb so that you won’t get any calls.”

Hotel Guest: “I want to take a half-hour nap, so I don’t want the phone to ring. But I want to be able to get calls later.”

Me: “I understand, sir, I’ll be sure not to transfer any calls to your room for the next half hour.”

Hotel Guest: “But what if one of the people in my group wants to reach me?”

Me: “Would you like me to only allow calls from inside the hotel?”

Hotel Guest: “No, I want to take a nap.”

Me: “So, you want me to make sure that you don’t get any calls for the next half hour, but if anyone calls, you want them to be able to reach you?”

Hotel Guest: *confused* “Yes.”

Me: “I understand, sir. I’ll take care of it.”
