Summer and I just left our fancy lady hotel room, and upon checkout were interrogated about a missing mini bar chocolate bar. We assured the hotel manager that we didn't use anything from the mini bar. He seemed placated and continued our check-out. Five minutes later, he asked again, "Are you absolutely sure, that maybe, even by mistake, you didn't eat a chocolate bar?"
The whole thing was a little embarrassing. Look, we didn't eat the chocolate bar. But the fact that he questioned us twice made me feel incredibly guilty, as if I HAD eaten the chocolate bar. It's kind of like how my sister Kasey keeps her hands visible at all times on top of her grocery cart so that nobody could ever think she was stealing something. If she needs to use her Chapstick while shopping, she makes a big production of keeping her hands visible, reaching into her purse so the cameras will see it was her Chapstick.
He knew we were nice girls and everything based on our negotiating the price of the room, and we definitely explained that we had no money (sali ne in his native tongue), and he did say, "I know you wouldn't spend so much on accommodation and then steal a chocolate bar". In the end, I think he believed us. At least I hope so. We stared him down and tried to look as serious as we possibly could, but come on, do we LOOK like the kind of people who joke around at fancy hotels?
