As I’m writing this, it’s 4:30 in the morning and I’m in Atlanta for a business meeting.
For some reason, I assumed the hotel would have internet service to each room, but apparently that’s not the case. My consolation is that there’s a jacuzzi tub in my room (that seems excessive to use, given Atlanta’s current drought conditions), a separate living room, and two TVs. There’s even a network cable coming out of the wall here on the desk where I have my laptop set up. That’s right - a desk, a network cable, two televisions, a jacuzzi tub, and no internet access. Apparently they were all booked up yesterday afternoon, so they couldn’t switch me to a room with internet access. Sheesh! Honestly, I think I could have functioned better without TV than without internet access. What does that say about us nowadays? Suddenly the idea of internet access in your car doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.
At least I did get to make the four hour drive from Nashville to Atlanta in a nice Lexus GS300 company car. It’s a pretty nice ride, and I suppose I can look forward to sitting in rush hour Atlanta traffic in it when I head home this afternoon.
Sorry for the rant, folks. I do feel better now, after typing my frustration away. Hopefully I can get this posted up sometime later today.
