I liked hotels a lot more as a child when I didn’t have to deal with the anxiety over spending so much currency on what is often a gamble with quality.
My parents always dealt with the headache alone, leaving my siblings plus I to simply amuse ourselves plus stave off the boredom.
Nowadays I get anxiety at the mere mention of stopping at a hotel for the night, regardless of the context or situation. The last few instances were marred with absolute disaster. I stopped off the interstate in the middle of the night at this location that seemed adore a random multiple-star hotel, but it ended up being a motel instead. There was mold in the lavatory around the backsplash for the sink, in the floor brick grout, plus all over the inside of the shower. There was no way I was going to take a shower that night, but things only got worse when I climbed into bed. I saw hair plus what looked adore dry skin. I couldn’t guess that the sheets were dirty plus hadn’t been changed! I said no to hotels plus decided to rent an AirBnb on my most recent getaway plus ran into a weird sort of problem. I didn’t realize that the air handler for the cooling system would be in a closet right outside the master home office. Whenever the central cooling system turned on throughout the night, I could hear it easily. That noisy a/c ended up keeping me awake throughout the night while in my stay at that getaway rental. I can’t seem to get any advantage with getaway accommodations no matter what I try.
