On a less humorous note, please pay attention to what the clerk is saying when they check you into the hotel. Of the 5 people I've checked in tonight, 2 of them have asked "What time is the breakfast?" literally immediately after I said "The breakfast will be served from 6 until 9." And I mean immediately. As in, I said the words and less than a second later they asked when it was. I'm not saying this s~%% because I want to, but because I'm trying to preemptively answer some of the most common questions. So listen for two freaking seconds, and you may just get the answer before you even need to ask.

Thank you for listening.

only till 9? ours is till 10. We have our breakfast hours on a large sign that plainly says our hours. I've had them stand right next to it and ask me what time breakfast was. to be fair I suppose TN does have a very high illiteracy rate... except most of our guests are from out of state >.>

Oh and the other thing I do my answer phone Hey this is X at y etc.
Them: hey is this y?
Yes I literally just said that.

Yeah, I get the whole "Is this the place you just said it was?" thing quite a bit too.

While this is a legitimate complaint, and what I'm about to say certainly doesn't cover everyone: I'll do that at times, and I generally do so because I'm exhausted, distracted by trying to remember everything at a new place while keeping everything together and making sure I've not forgotten anything, and am trying to listen to the person talking while getting myself at least marginally organized.

Also, I have ADD, but... eh.

That, at least, should help explain it, to some extent. I really try to pay attention - it just isn't happening sometimes.

You try to check in to a hotel, keep track of excited kids, make sure you sign in correctly, grasp what room number you got, tell said kids to behave, keep an eye on your bags, get your kids out the fountain or plants, and listen for when breakfast is.

Psssh I never check in kids. that is more of a second shift thing. Mine are always sleep deprived adults. occasionally tipsy adults.

Related story: one of my first jobs. Cashier at a pizza stand in an amusement park. Every single person that came though would ask me for napkins. now mind you literally 2 inch away from my head is a large wall mounted napkin dispenser with napkin in big bold letters written down it. It always had one napkin kind of hanging down it. It happened so often It seriously started to upset me. I

think it it just general stress from the job and that just happens to be the outlet or focus. Generally speaking talking joking and complaining about the problem lowers stress.

So keep in mind we are not attacking you guys if you ave ever done that me and gran are just exchanging war stories to help trivialize them so they don't stress us out.

I used to work at Vinnie's and we had a big sale, so I usedy half hour to prep for opening by making sale signs on poster board in bright colors surrounding my register, everyone would walk in, look around then ask "are there any sales today?" to which I would reply "no".

Dude, we were this close to getting one of them to watch our kids while we and the wives check in to a hotel (separately of course, in different rooms).

Oh, that's not a joke. Once you hit fortysomething your beard gets salt-and-pepper before the rest of your hair.

I think the funniest part about hotel/rental orientations is that I'm obsessive-compulsive so I absolutely, positively need to know all those things...
...and the staffperson is inevitably astonished when I can repeat all the details back to him or her because I was obsessively paying attention.

So honestly I'm afraid it's unusual for people to catch it all and remember it. I know it's a HUGE amount of information to receive all at once at the end of an inevitably looooooong trip...

Hotel and camping sign in is why it's always good to have both parents there, one of them gets to sign in and listen, and the other gets to hang with the kids and make sure they climb through the potted plants and splash in the fountain before they do.

Depends. Some folks seem to get salt-and-pepper hair while keeping their beard young and black/brown/red/blonde/whatever.

Due to my wife's interpretive calendar reading we are done with school shopping two weeks ahead of schedule.

Both at the same time.

What the f*&#! The toy store in the mall has Next Generation Cornhole!

Apparently there is the technology to allow one to cornhole tailgating, camping, and at the beach.

Aaaaaargh!

So, knowing Impus Major's distractibility, I handed him a numbered list of things he needed to take care of at orientation.

Items #3 and #4 were: "Order a yearbook and fill in the blank check I gave you with the amount for the yearbook."

He completely forgot them.

At least he didn't lose the check!

Aaaaaand... 0 for 2!

Impus Minor went in with HIS list, but the adults could not believe that a 13-year-old would be responsible enough to get all his own stuff. So he, our neighbor (the most foul-mouthed 13-year-old girl you'll ever meet. Seriously. She's pretty scary), and another friend, all of whom are intelligent, independent kids, wandered around confused and aimless because the adults wouldn't let them turn in their own forms.

So they went out and got frozen yogurt instead.

Have I mentioned that they're sensible kids?

As a father, this is where being home schooled was a disadvantage.

I'm learning all of this as my daughter is.

I can't wait for the anxiety dreams having to register for high school is sure to cause me.

You know you don't live in the Bay Area when you find something like this unusual...

It's not that unusual here, I just noticed because I was right behind her on a shut off escalator and she was going slow. So of course I'm going to notice the big bushy tail hanging from her ass.

Hello John, Freehold, Tacticslion and all the rest of FaWL.

Yes my good Captain, we got Starfinder PDF a few weeks early so we could run at Gencon.

I actually Cosplayed as an Imperial Admiral while Demoing Starfinder space combat.

We finished Shattered Star at game tonight. That was a tough final battle. I had fun because I used Greater Invisibility and then Form of the Dragon 3 to turn into a huge-sized invisible copper dragon. Which really confused all the other players because a) none of them knew I had that spell, and b) I never used a polymorph type spell for the whole campaign (this, despite the fact that as an elemental-bloodline sorcerer I had the various Elemental Body spells as bonus spells). Since the fight ended before the invisibility wore off, none of them had any idea what had happened. I got a good laugh out of it.

And then we had to decide what we were going to play next. In the end, I volunteered to run Giant Slayers. Now I'm starting to freak out a little. It's been close to 6 years since I ran a Pathfinder game, and I've never used an adventure path so I don't really know what to expect. I'm sure it will be fine, but on top of that they agreed to let me run a one-shot in a different RPG (which only I have read) that uses a system none of us have ever played in (a variant on the FATE system). I think it should go ok, but who knows? I need to put the finishing touches on the adventure since we start next week.

I took the time to write out a quick version of the rules for them, I managed to get it to about 5 pages. Also a 1.5 page summary of setting-specific things they might need to know. And I made characters for them all. I just wonder how many of them are going to read the damn things even though they all said "I'll be sure to read it at least twice. After all, I have a whole week." I'm about 95% that the one guy won't, and 75% that the one woman won't either. The other 4, I'm guessing between 50% and 80% that they will. I really hope at least one of them will read it so my time wasn't completely wasted.
