Poor Kid

We had two check-ins left tonight when I got here, and both had the same last name.  It's about 15 minutes into the shift when a fella comes in to check in the first.  He gives his last name, so I ask him if he was Jim or Zachary, and he says:

"Jim.  Zachary was a mistake.  Well...  um...  Zachary wasn't a MISTAKE...  but he isn't coming tonight..."

Glad to know Zachary was well-planned-for...  :p

I Think They Liked That Movie, Too.

If you haven't seen The Secretary, this post might not make much sense.  If you decide to go watch the to not watch it around your grandma.  Um...unless your grandma is one of these ladies.

So two very sweet, older women come over to the hotel from another one that was full, and I start checking them in.  One of them starts flipping through the newspaper, and says:

"Oh!  I love that Maggie Gyllenhaal.  She was in that movie, have you seen it?  Um...The Secretary."

My jaw literally fell open and I'm just kind of staring at her, half laughing, half gaping.

She goes, "SHE'S SEEN IT!  Look, she's blushing!  I think she liked that movie.  It was a very funny movie!  The guy who hires Maggie Gyllenhaal in it is like this, sadist?  And she's a masochist?  It's very funny."

I stuttered the rest of the way through checking them in as they giggled over movie plots, and I gave them their keys.  I think I probably said something in agreement about the movie being very cute and quirky...but it's kind of a blur.

Just...didn't see that one comin'!

And yes, I HAVE seen that film, and it's one of my favorites.  :)
