Thread: Ever had a close call?

  1. #1

    Question Ever had a close call?

    Today, I get in and check the mail to find a letter addressed to me from a hotel I used three weeks ago for some fun. I freaked! I had to provide them with my real address since I used my credit card but I explicitly asked them not to send me any mail. Thank god my significant other did not see the mail.

    It ended up being a questionnaire on how I like the hotel and its service. It had my name and the date that I stayed there. Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever had really close call?

    P.S. Don't tell me I should have used motels, I just cannot get into them.

    I am in a similar situation but I have not had that happen since I go the motel route - may go upscale one day however. I have had another type of closer call that I won't describe here. Anyhow, I do travel frequently to the US for business and stay in hotels. They usually ask for an address and I always give my business address since I don't want to get junk from them. Credit card swipes don't check addresses so you should be able to provide another address without problem.

    Since I do carry on various activities, I am very careful to leave minimal trails behind. Most important I think are getting rid of receipts and papers of any kind that are somewhat out of the oridinary (like an SAQ reciept from a store way out of your normal routine or a phone number for an agency that you wrote on a post-it for example). I've also had agency girls give me their agency's business card - get rid of those immediatly.

    Also can't be too careful with the computer. Even if you're the only to use it with a private login, disable capture of history in your browser and do not have the browser remember login names or passwords of sites such as MERB - that may be hard to explain if someone finds the site in your history. Its will be even worse if they find a login name (General Gonad????) and password. Be careful.

    MakeIt,

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. I prefer hotels than motels but I did get pissed when I saw this letter addressed to me with the exact date that I visited. All I will say about this hotel is that it was Special K approved. I still like it for basic needs - a lot better than motels, but nothing great.

    What do you locals do when visitng hotels but do not want to be bothered with junk mail addressed to your name? Giving a work address is no better since my assistant will scan it. Maybe I got it because I never bothered checking out - I just split after my session.

    Is there any more advice out there? How do you ensure your discretion?

    Same happened to me recently (questionnaire in the mail, etc). It was the Holiday Inn.

    I don't know Canadian law, but in the US this is dangerous for the hotel.

    In fact, hotels are not even supposed to send back lost & found items unless the guest contacts them first. I heard an urban legend about a man from Massachusetts. He left his license behind in his room. The hotel staff mailed it back to him. You know the rest-wife got it in the mail, found out where he'd stayed, that he'd been unfaithful, etc. He then sued the hotel and won. I can't verify this, but the moral is that a hotel should get a guests permission before sending anything to them.

    The luxury and pain of assistants. Just give a fake address. Address isn't needed to validate a CC purchase with a card swiper. If they question it, tell them its a billing address for your company since you're on business and all correspondance needs to go to that address.

    Quick question...

    If you have a GF/Wife, why do you see those girls?

    (just asking, I know I wouldn't be able to see other women...)

    ...that is the money question. Everyone has their own reasons, though it is a matter of man's ability to accept sexual monogamy. Sometimes it is as simple as being on a business trip and being horny.

    Many would ask you the same question, if you are single, why are you here?

    A simple question with no simple answer. PhDs, therapists, marriage counselors, psychologists, et al, have written books trying to answer this question. If you come up with an answer, let me know.


    Have you ever been married?

    Popped,…..but I am innocent!!!

    This is not a case of a paper trail, a hotel survey or the fact, I was hiding anything.

    So,.... in the event one is secretly doing anything,….. and you have taken all the necessary precautions, even recruited some friends to add credibility and regurgitate the story on cue,.... talk your way out of this.

    I was in Chicago, for a convention and staying at a very high-end hotel just off Lake Michigan. It was around this time of year. I mention this as I was lying on the comforter in my underwear watching March Madness on the television. I was not married at the time but did have a sometime live-in girlfriend of just over 2 years. Additionally, I had not indulged in the fruits of Chicago during my visit.

    Shortly after returning home but not before I was happily greeted on my return, I realized I had contracted an industrial case of sea-monkeys, that’s right, crabs, and yes, from the comforter. Of course, I passed them along to her.

    In alleviating the disorder, no big deal, we all know the cure. But, every time thereafter, if had to take a trip or we had a disagreement, I was reminded of how I must have done the dirty-boogie with someone on that trip,... as she found it inconceivable, someone could contract crabs, off of a comforter.

    I travel quite often and have never gotten a clear answer on just how often hotels wash/clean/change the comforters. I will say, since my experience, the first thing I do when I check in the room, is tear off the comforter and put it in the closet, which does not suggest nothing hasn’t jumped to the sheets prior to my arrival. This may also be in part, as to why I have been clean-shaven ever since!

    libido mismatch

    Many of you single guys think that once you're married, there is no need for this type of 'deviant' activity. I am not proud of cheating - far from it - but I accept the fact that you can truly love your wife/ girlfriend but suffer from a libido mismatch. There is some truth to this old joke:

    A man came home from work one day to find his wife sitting on the front porch with her bags packed. He asked her where she was going and she replied, "I'm going to Las Vegas."

    He questioned her as to why she was going and she told him, "I just found out that I can make $400.00 a night doing what I give you for free."

    He pondered that then went into the house and packed his bags and returned to the porch and sat with his wife. She said, "And just where do you think you're going?"

    "I'm going too!!" he replied.

    "Why?" she asked.

    "I want to see how you are going to live on $800.00 a year!"

    Hotels and motels in Quebec ask for driver's license. How the hell can we get around this? There's our picture on it!

    I remember once a motel in Vaudreuil only asked me for my license plate number for a siesta. I pretended I didn't remember the number and it worked! Do you know of other places like this? What about the Day's Inn or the Comfort Inn in Brossard? I think I might give them a call just to know what they might ask. Why don't they ask for an account, like 100$, to make sure we won't get away with the bed sheets for crying out loud?!? I would even give them 500$ as an account if they need it. Shit, what will it take! I only want a siesta, no more...

    Surely they must know that if we go there for a siesta, it won't be with our wives and we want complete discretion! No damn mail, no number, no picture, no anything!

    And of course, you only pay cash. I'll even put on my sunglasses. Can never be too careful.
