The secret evil of hotels

We all sort of know that hotels like to add annoying little extras to our bills that we're generally too polite to dispute. 

Joe McInerney, president of the American Hotel and Lodging Association would like to make it clear, though, that fees for incidental services represent a 'miniscule amount of revenue'

So, in that case, they must be doing it just to annoy us..

You're not kidding, when a guest at the hotel where I do the audit came down screaming at me in Hebrew because of her 1200.00 phone bill, I wanted to laugh at her stupidity.
I didn't because I hate to see a woman cry.

I also don't speak Hebrew and had to ask her to speak a language I do speak

Hey Mikey,

My name is Raheel Ramzanali and I am the producer for the Ken Hoffman show on 1560 The Game in Houston, TX. I came across your blog Sod Abroad (and I do appreciate your humor and work) and I wanted to ask if you are available for an interview to promote the book and your blog. The show is on-air every weekday from 12-2pm CST. Please let me know if we can work something out. Thank you for your time! Please e-mail me at rramzanali at gmail dot com.
