You know this guest...s/he walks in the door and starts firing off questions and comments faster than you can respond:
  • Why is check-in at 5 PM? (ask this 5 times in succession while innkeeper is explaining to your husband how to get back in the house.)
  • You did a lot of renovation here? (ask this while innkeeper is trying to explain that check-in is not simply AT 5 PM, but that is the time you CHOSE to arrive.)
  • Where are you from? (ask this while innkeeper is trying to explain breakfast.)
  • This place is lovely. (say that while innkeeper is telling you where she is from.)
  • Why are you doing this? (ask this while the innkeeper is thanking you for the compliment.)
  • Where do we eat breakfast? (ask this while standing in an OBVIOUS dining room.)
  • Where should we eat dinner? (ask this 2 minutes after you come in the door and all the previous questions are piling up.)
  • What time do the stores close? We should eat first or shop first? Is this place still there? Is it any good? Would you go there? Do they have a restaurant at the big hotel? Is it any good? It's very expensive, isn't it?

I actually saw a card that was like this the other day, and I almost bought it for you. But it was a graduation card or something, but it was MR 20 Questions on the front...it was really cute.

That would be too funny considering where he got his nickname :) Surprisingly, he was not so much Mr. 50 Questions on vacation. Actually, it wasn't a surprise since he was more de-stressed. When he's stressed out, the questions start flying like a super rapid fire machine gun
