So yeah, the hotel had a fire.

Not a bad one. A few boxes in the storage room, but it was enough. The entire contents of the storage room - several spare sets of sheets and pillows, as well as boxes of various sundries like laundry detergent, pens, and a good stack of Gideon’s best - were smoke and water damaged. Additionally, the entire second floor was be-smoked, and the carpet needs to be replaced (smoke, water, glass from broken windows, etc), so nobody can stay there.

As for what started it, the

Well, this time at least Boo is apparently in the clear.  Where was Smerk at that time, though?  All it would take is one dragon sneeze and then one hasty cover-up.  Hmmm. . .

I had a boss who never took vacation.  She was a workaholic.

We built a new tower on the hotel that took the room count from 244 to 777.  A few months after it was open and everything had settled down she was “forced” to take her vacation by her boss.  Last thing she said me to and the other supervisor as she walked out the door: “Don’t burn the hotel down.”

Yep.  That evening we had a suicidal guy try to burn himself to death in his bed.  Luckily the comforter was extremely fire resistant.  We just ended up with a lot of smoke.

And, luckily, it was at a casino/hotel when I lived in Vegas, so I was just a little peon in the grand scheme of things and didn’t have to deal much with the aftermath.  My boss was back that night for it, but otherwise enjoyed her vacation time off.

That’s something that always annoyed me.  Bad enough that you’ve decided to kill yourself for what you’d probably decide later on were silly reasons, but when you go and do it in such a way as to cause huge inconvenience for total strangers as well. . .

Agreed, plenty of accessable high places you could just jump off of.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Then you might damage somebody’s car, or splatter all over somebody’s clothes.

Update: Well, the second floor is rentable again, though the carpet is an ugly shade of brown. It’s not even a shade of brown that’s trying to *be* something.. no, it’s just ‘brown’. Yay. The storage area is still off-limits, and likely to be so for a while.

I’m guessing you’re pretty glad to have all that finally done.  One time I had some carpet that was pretty badly damaged so…......I painted it with pictures and designs HAHAHAHA! 

Can you still smell the ‘smoke’ though?
