      (On the phone…)

      Customer: “Hi, I want to book a room with 2 beds for tomorrow.”

      Me: “Sure thing sir, lucky for you we’re not busy this weekend and have several rooms available. ”

      Customer: “Great, and how many pillows do the beds have?”Pillows

      Me: “Umm, I think there’s 2 on each bed.”

      Customer: “Can you check?”

      Me: “Okay….I’ll just be a moment.”

      (I go and check the nearest room’s bed and the next room along to be safe.)

      Me: “Yes, 2 per bed.”

      Customer: “So my room will have 2 pillows on each bed?”

      Me: “That’s correct, sir.”

      Customer: “”

      Me: “Umm…you could always just take the other pillow off your bed when you go to sleep.”

      Customer: “What? No, I want one of the rooms with one less pillow on one bed.”

      Me: “Sir, we don’t have rooms with specific numbers of pillows–”

      Customer: “–but you have rooms with specific number of beds!”

      Me: “Yes…that’s pretty much the norm, sir…”

      Customer: “Don’t get smart honey, I want a room with 2 beds, 2 pillows on one of them but only 1 on the other. That’s what I want.”

      Me: *sigh* “Okay sir, I’ll personally remove one of the bed’s pillows before you arrive tomorrow, how’s that?”

      Customer: “Good, that works for me. Hang on, are the pillows thick fluffy ones or skinny flat ones? Because if they’re skinny, I’ll just keep both of them.”
