A Bum Trip

August 04, 1985

While on vacation we arrived at Howard Johnson's in Key West with confirmed June 27 reservations. They had fouled up and had already charged my credit card for a June 24 no-show. Can you imagine? They demanded my credit card to charge us again for June 27 with the assurance that they would credit me for the June 24 mistake. When I refused to let them double-bill me, they demanded money, cash, to guarantee "phone charges" for that night. Great hospitality.
