When I was a traveling salesman, I had to spend time all over the country in hotels.
I was hardly ever at home.
I never had time for pets like a dog or a cat. I couldn’t even keep a fish alive because I was gone so frequently. One time the boss sent me to a business seminar out west and I was in the middle of nowhere. The hotel was supposed to be a four-star joint, but it looked more like a two star shack. The hotel looked like it came from the scene of a scary movie. I didn’t even want to go to sleep. In the middle of the night the guy next door was banging on the wall. He didn’t sound like he was having sex with someone, but it was hard to know exactly what he was doing. He smoked marijuana outside of my room in the middle of the night and the smell from the marijuana came into the room through the wall ac unit. The smell of marijuana was awful and it made my whole room smell terrible. The smell of marijuana was in my clothes and on all of my luggage. The cops at the airport gave me a funny look as I was walking by. I thought for sure that they would stop me and go through all of my things because the small of marijuana was so strong after that guy was smoking outside of my room. That was one of the worst trips I had while I was traveling every week. It wasn’t long after that when I decided to stop traveling so much.
