Crazy Motel Story
This Crazy Motel Story day started not so different than any other day in the motel business, rented a few rooms before the evening when I had a guest come in and want a room with two beds for at first two people so I gave him the rate and he said that was great and filled out the card, I happened to notice the car outside and saw a third person popping their head up in the back seat so I asked if their was a third person? He stated that their would be three and not two so I tacked on $5.00 for the extra person.
Later that evening they came down to get some ice and he told me they really liked the room and loved the large flat screen television on the wall, off course I said thanks and off he went with his ice to his room. The next morning about 10 a.m. we saw him walking east on the road outside the motel, my wife asked where he came from and I stated that he was in one of the rooms I rented out back the night before. At 10:30 I gave all guest still in a courtesy call that check-out was in 30 minutes as my wife and I were going to start cleaning the rooms. About an hour late I get a call from the office that a women in the room where the guy was walking east from the motel was leaving the key on the counter, I wished her a nice day and she left.
About an hour later my wife and I were cleaning the back section rooms and had got to the room where the three people were. My wife had stated as I opened the door they probably destroyed the room but when I opened the door it was spotless and they even straightened the beds which I found odd as no one straightens the beds since I am just going to strip them anyways. When pulling down the bedspread I noticed a pillow case was missing from one of the pillow, my wife said well there that is $4.00 bucks they stole. I proceeded to strip both beds not finding the missing pillow case but I noticed a shoe under the bed and told my wife they stole the pillow case but left a shoe and I proceeded to get down on my knees to pull out the shoe, low and behold their was a foot attached to the shoe and a very small women yelled that is my foot. I stated “what the hell” as this women crawled out from under the bed and said she was just waiting for her friends to leave. Which I countered by saying that they had left over an hour ago so why was she under the beds so long, she replied she was concentrating on her breathing. My wife informed her that in all of our years in business we have never found anyone under the beds alive or dead and that was weird.
The young lady in this crazy motel story proceeded to pulled out several bags of close from under the bed and my wife could hardly hold back the laughter as she told the young lady she would have to leave. What we believe she was doing was hoping that if she remained quiet that we would not know that she was there and after we would leave she would crawl out from under the bed and get another day or two of use in the room. Unfortunately for her she came to our motel and my wife and I always look under the beds for items that might have been left such as food, clothes and more.
When she left she went west toward the gas station and called for her friends to come back and pick her up, we know this because she called the motel back and asked my wife to let her friends no where she was. My wife ask who she was and she stated the women under the bed.
