Partied Out Before The Party Started

, , , , | Right | December 22, 2020

It is December and holiday parties are in full swing. I’m working at the front desk at my hotel. A couple in their mid-twenties comes to the desk.

Male Guest: “Can you tell us how to get to our holiday party?”

Me: “Sure, which party are you going to?”

Male Guest: “Um…” *Looks at his wife.*

Female Guest: “Don’t look at me. Ask her; she should know!”

The male guest just looks at me.

Me: “I know of five parties within the immediate area; which are you going to?”

Both of them look at me like I’m stupid.

Male Guest: “The one that had something to do with a boat.”

Me: “There are three parties tonight with a boat in their name. Which one are you looking for?”

Male Guest: “Um…”

He starts looking at his phone. His wife is still looking at me like I’m an idiot.

Me: “There is the party boat in the river right behind us.”

I point behind me towards the river.

Me: “There is the paddle boat pub next door.”

I point to my right.

Me: “And the seafood restaurant—” *with “boat” in its name* “—is down this hall.”

Both just walked away. 

Dude, I work in a hotel in the downtown core at Christmas. There are literally parties everywhere.
