Most shower heads hit me right about chest high - that's where they come out of the wall. One hotel shower this week was actually about seven feet high. It was wonderful, but I'm guessing not many people could take advantage of the adjustable flows as the control for it was another six inches higher.

If you are driving a shuttle, and looking for tips, I have one for you. You didn't help the 65 year old woman load her large suitcase onto the shuttle, so I did. Don't stand there with your hand out when I get off. I should've taken money out of your jar and slapped you when you looked annoyed (with your hand outstretched and palm up) as I walked past you.
Ever wonder why some companies are not as profitable as they could be? Here's a perfect example. My co-worker and I had a few drinks and an appetizer at the restaurant in the hotel. I had them charge the bill to my room on two different nights. When I went to checkout, only the second night appeared on the bill. Also, the soda and water I had charged directly to the room from the lobby didn't make it onto the bill. I informed the front desk they were missing those two charges and they said "looks like you got free drinks". I feel good that I tried to pay for the services I used, but I wonder how often this happens and how many times a $50 bill just gets written off.
Hotel beds are almost always too short.

Even when I try to schedule a time to talk with Julia, something comes up on one end so we end up talking in the wee hours of the morning. We're then both exhausted the next day with no chance to nap.
Coming home takes twice as long as it does to get there.
The time away lasts twice as long as the time at home does.
It's impossible to eat healthy on the road and the "gyms" hotels advertise rarely live up to their billing. I wouldn't necessarily consider an 8X8 room with a treadmill, one five pound dumbbell and a set of 10 pound ones a "workout facility". Oh, and it is tough to swim laps in a 10X10 pool.
