OR: They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway.

In the old days, they said an upset customer would on average tell seven others to avoid an establishment. With the advent of the internets, I can do better than seven.

STAY AWAY FROM THE CONTINENTAL HOSTEL ON 95th STREET, MANHATTAN.

I returned tonight to find a note calling me to the front desk. It seems the manager, who had gone home, had left instructions that I was to pay for 5 extra nights or be kicked out. He claims I slept in the wrong bed last night. I didn't pay & will see him in the morning.

On a lighter note, I saw a Broadway play tonight called Prelude To A Kiss, with the pilot from Firefly the father from Frasier in it. On a slightly related note, if one more American calls me Mr. Frasier I may just scream. If it's that hostel manager it's a certainty.

Should ever I make it to the big apple avoid THE CONTINENTAL HOSTEL ON 95th STREET, MANHATTAN. Got it.

Regarding your lighter note, do they actually get around to kissing? No, don’t tell me I’ll wait to it comes out on video and see for myself.

Just had to correct your statistcal fact.... the ratio is: an upset customer will tell TWENTY others and a happy customer will tell ONE other.
