Have you heard or seen or even stayed in one of those new mini-rooms that are supposed to save a traveler money? Ever suspect that it’s not being created for savings, but to load tons of more guests into less and less space, and collect more and more money… here’s one example.
Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic each week to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s humor (funny, it was humor the week before, and the week before that, and the week before…)
No Extra Charge for Claustrophobia
The big-city hotel room had Sam ballistic.
“For $900.00 a night, I get a mirrored closet?”
Skyler, his contact, explained, “It’s the latest in mini-rooms. Place your laptop on that little shelf, sit on that white porcelain stool which doubles as your commode, and slide the shelf upward when you have to go.”
Sam flipped. “Does a noose drop down, and I get to sleep hanging from it?”
“So morbid, but we can arrange it. This mirror moves up, and you sleep normally, inside an alcove in the wall.”
“Great. So I can pretend I’m having an MRI.”
“Maybe you’d prefer our coffin model mini-suite?”
