It's a little too early in the year for these calls. 'Right there' was 30 minutes ago. Lights out, going to bed. I'm sure they found something else.

That's what I do also. No way I'm waiting up for a maybe. Funny, but when you say you're going to charge their card they always get there!

I really did not think they were coming. They didn't even ask the price. And, given they were on the highway when they called, I figured they just kept going.

Had one this last week... he said 'we're at the S H E LL station, we will be there shortly''  I said which one?  (there is one 1 mile from me but who knows)   He told me right at the hwy and named a city 60 miles from me.   I told him that was an hour's drive and he started arguing with me....  NOPE, don't think they are B&B people!

I've had people argue with me on that point too, most noticeable a couple called from Edinburgh and said they'd be here in 1.5 - 2 hours. When I said it would be at least 3 hours they started arguing with me. I said "fine, I'll see you in two hours". 3.5 hours later they arrive and said " you were right". Of course I'm b****y right, I live here, I've done the trip to Edinburgh numerous times.

"We'll be there in 10 minutes" ALWAYS means at least 30.

And what IS it with parents? They had a 4 yo with them and wanted one bed. 'He's too young to sleep alone.' Spare me.

I had that with a mother and her 9 yo son last year, she booked the twin room and then said she needed a double room because her son couldn't sleep on is own. That's heading for icky territory.
