I’m more than a little bit tired today, but that’s not important right not. I failed to take my own advice, and wound up making a poor choice last night.
Here’s a travel conundrum: You arrive at a hotel at 1 a.m. You have to be up at 6 — although it would be better if you were up at 5. When you walk into your room there’s a loud noise coming from the bathroom fan.
You’re exhausted and just want to go to sleep, but you’re afraid it will keep you up or wake you up. Do you:
- Go back downstairs to the desk and get a new room, or
- Try to minimize the noise as best you can and tough it out?
It’s worth deciding the answer to this question in advance, because arriving at a hotel after midnight you’re not always thinking clearly enough to make a good decision on the spot.
You never want to accept a room that’s unacceptable but on the other hand you just want to crash into a bed… Which do you do?
