By: Carolyn Lott-Dooley Copyright . August 13, 2008
A southern woman living in Michigan went to a Sleep Study held at a prestige hotel in her home town Upon arriving home, the next morning, while unpacking her belongings, she discovered, she had mistakenly brought home the hotel’s soap dish. Immediately, she called the Sleep Study Center explaining what happened. She asked the receptionist what to do, or, who should she return it to. The receptionist suggested, to bring it to them; which, was several miles from her home. After explaining to her husband what happened, he suggested, they return it to the Hotel since it was only a few miles away. The woman and husband drove up to the valet parking area, the woman asked her husband to return it to the hotel; because, she felt she was not dressed proper, she had on an pair of jeans, and a tee shirt, plus, her hair was wet from showering . He told her, he could not leave the car running and sitting in front of the hotel that she had to return it. At the desk; three well dressed ladies did not acknowledge her. So, she put her purse upon the desk and said,
“Hey Y’all, I was down here the other night for a sleep study and when I got home, I discovered, I brought home your soap dish..”
All three ladies stopped what they were doing and starred at the lady, then, the lady turned around and walked away, A few nights later, the same lady returned; after being diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. So, the second time she dressed up. The following morning, after the sleep study was over, the lady was standing in front of the hotel, waiting for her husband to pick her up. After several minutes of waiting, she decided to call her husband to ask where he was at. Before he arrived , there was a silver car parked by her and for a split-second she thought about sitting her bag upon the car to look through her bag to find her cell phone. She was standing next to an ashtray and she did not want to sit her bag near it. However, she thought about how she would feel if someone sat their bag on her car; so, she decided to hold her bag. Before she dialed the number, her husband drove up. She got into their 1987 station wagon. Her husband noticed the silver car parked where he picked her up and commented,
“Look at that car, ” The lady looked at him and said: “That silver car, so, what is so good about that
car?” He said ,
“Oh!, only, because it is a Bentley, a very expensive car. “
Then, she told him about thinking about sitting her bag upon it; yet, decided not to,. He told her it is a good thing you did not sit your bag on that car and let someone see you.. Suddenly, she thought about the way they treated her a few days earlier to return their plastic soap dish dressed in every day clothes. She looked at her husband and said,
“Had I known that was a ‘Bentley’ an expensive car, I would have walked back into that hotel and told those women at the desk,
“Hey Y’all, call AAA,, my Bentley won’t start, by the way, I’m Gary the cable man's wife.”
