We would like to reserve a room with you for the weekend of Columbus Day. Hopefully the foliage will be great this year as we plan to take a drive up the Kankamangus highway. Please make sure we have the same room as before if available and we are hoping for your waffle breakfast. We can't wait to see you!
Call for our new credit card number at xxx xxx xxxx
Bev and Bill''
bev and bill who? i can picture them, but have to retrieve the old bookkeeping file to find them based on the occupancy records from oct '08. (by the way, the phone number in the email was transposed)
so i call and i explain that i no longer work at the b&b and they should call there tomorrow to speak with the new innkeeper ... Bill calls out to Bev, 'Maggie says she's not at the b&b any more.' 'what?' 'Maggie's not at that b&b any more.' 'well, ask if we can stay where she is now.' 'uh, Maggie? We'd like to stay wherever it is you are now.' ' Bill, i'm sorry, i'm not working at a b&b right now.' 'well, can we still stay with you?'
long long explanation ensues. maybe he thought i meant i now work at a hotel. they don't want to try a new place and are just going straight to the white mountains ... but not before Bev instructs Bill to let me know 'it's a crime and a damn shame.' i remember Bev really, really well now!! she scolded me the whole time they were here ... like a mom ... 'you should be cooking this way,' 'you should be putting your feet up between guests', 'you should cut your hair'
haha. gotta love 'em.
hmmmmm .... let's see ... i could put them up in the spare bedroom ...
