We have traveled to Tulsa to visit Gunny and his family and arrived at our favorite Tulsa hotel around noon. Gunny came over to greet us and help us move our stuff in. And I asked him “while you are at it” to set up the wireless connection for me so that I could get on the internet — thank you God for children who can help us with technology that “we” (that would be me) can’t figure out for ourselves.
Then while Hubby and Gunny went to run some errands, I unpacked. One thing I like to do at a hotel like this where you actually have some glass glasses in the kitchenette, is to take one of the glasses into the bathroom and put it next to the sink to stand our toothbrushes in during our stay.
When I looked in the cabinet where the glasses were stored there were four, and I made a mental note to buy some plastic ones when I go to the grocery because Gunny, Dilly, Niki and Jay will be in and out all weekend, and even with some drinks being drank out of cans, we would surely need at least four glasses.
After I finished unpacking, I sat down at the desk area to use my now connected computer.
Soon after I had started working on the computer, I heard a key in the lock. I assumed it was Hubby returning. But when the door opened it was a maid. She looked surprised to see me sitting there, but she recovered quickly, smiling and saying something in Spanish. She then held up the glass she was carrying and proceeded to walk to the cabinet where I had just removed a glass and put the one she was carrying in its place.
I rattled off something about how handy the extra glass would be because we would be having company, but she didn’t seem to understand and left, still smiling, after saying a few more words that I think included the word “sorry”.
This is a fairly new, kind of high-tech looking hotel. So, do you suppose they have weight sensors in the cabinets so that they can tell that the weight of a glass is missing and they immediately send a maid to replace it? Naa, I don’t think so either. It’s more likely that she got the wrong room and some other room where there were still only three glasses, had to call again for a replacement.
But it was certainly an interesting coincidence.
