I Hate Summer!

I don't really hate SUMMER.  Let me restate that. . .

I hate working at a hotel during the summer vacation travel rush. 

There's a strange air of desperation for about 100 days a year when my hotel is completely sold out every single day and the phone literally doesn't go for 5 minutes without ringing and someone on the other end practically begging for a vacant room. 

And then when I tell them we're sold out, I get the question I dread: "Do you know of anywhere that has rooms?" Then I get the miserable job being bearer of the news that, as far as I know, every hotel within about 50 miles of me is sold out as well.

It ain't fun.

BUT. . .

That said, I generally really like working in hotels, especially managing on the graveyard shift like I do now (Yeah, that part about the phone ringing every five minutes. . .I'm talking about 2 a.m. no joke).  The night shift gives me plenty of time to relax and read comics, then review them for this fine website (and a few others, now this blog has gotten me a bit of notice as a sort of resume).

Unfortunately, readin' and reviewin' doesn't work out with a hotel full of guests wandering around at all hours because they aren't used to sleeping in a strange place and the phone ringing off the hook.

But the good news is that Fall is fast approaching, school is going back in session, and my hotel gets back to its slower groove that will let me get back to longbox junk as usual.  In other words, if you've missed Longbox Junk over the past month or two, I'll be back to it in a couple more weeks.
