The day my divorce was finalized, I stayed in a hotel in Memphis. It was a really nice hotel, but the maid beat on the door starting at 6:30 AM until I got up and answered. I don't mean a "polite knock". I mean, "open the ****ing door, it's the police" kind of pounding. Now, keep in mind, I had spent 10-11 hours the day before in court reliving every bad thing that ever happened during a nearly 8 year marriage. I was more emotionally and physically drained than even my worst days in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. She wanted to know when I would be checking out so that she could "clean it without disturbing" me. Friggin really? I told the manager, and he gave me a full refund and a gift certificate for breakfast.

I used to be out of town more than in for a while. The ONLY time I ever put the unholstered gun and speedloader on the nightstand was in western Colorado.

I was at a HUGE hotel in the friggin' middle of no-friggin-where and I didn't arrive till well after dark. The ONLY guests were a drunken highschool graduation rave going on in the front and they put me in the back. My one car in the middle of the dark grey parking lot of what seemed, I dunno, a quarter-mile long building facing the interstate in the distance. It was like a scene from a bad movie. I wouldn't even park directly in front of my room and couldn't wait to leave...

I think that might be what makes me nervous, the guy at the front desk, he knows I'm here alone and he can get in well kinda he can try...

The door has a latch and a deadbolt, doesn't it? That'll at least slow down anyone long enough for you to wake up and grab your gun. Choot'em in the nuts.

Me and a buddy will more than likely go to jail if we go back to massanuten va after what we did to that hotel room , thinking back on it we are ashamed but its still funny and not PG enough to post here , ill just say ALOT of beer some green stuff , coffee beans and over 1k rounds of pink and green paintballs . And later some phone calls from their police dpt and our local PD . It was bad , how we made the 5 hr trip home beats me , i know I woke up and someones front yard with the truck still running , hell I thought it was a path and cornfield . We were never the same after that trip . To make it all worse , it was one of those free timeshare sales pitch things .
We could make a movie out of that weekend and make millions , the hotel room in the hangover 1 was nothing .

Back in my younger meaner days we would leave the hotel with a toilet full and turn the heat on wide open .

We honeymooned in Vegas at the MGM Towers and I got a suite with a balcony so I could smoke and do other manly things . VERY VERY NICE room but we had to walk a mile to hit the casino . When your near the top floor and you have a glass railing balcony , make sure no one is below you when you pee off of it .
Yes I sprayed some folks
Me and Hotels , Rented Golfcarts and rental cars are a bad combo , rental cars in vegas ? Oh its over with but thats why I purchase top shelf insurance when i rent them . Guy said '' with this one , you can drop it off or just tell us where it is and its covered '' I cant explain what shape that suzuki grand ventara was in when we dumped it shortly after finding that dead body in the desert. Hey , it still had one tire holding air .
Wrote on the back glass '' how we do it in NC '' rolmao

Most of the time when I travel I am alone. There is a chain lock or some sort of bar lock, a dead bolt and then the regular door lock. I really never feel unsafe, at least not in my room.

I'm a self proclaimed bad ass. When staying in a hotel, my car is parked where I can see it, but never right near my room. If anyone is in the parking lot or on balconies, I wait until they go inside before I exit my vehicle. I regularly check my vehicle from the window when I make it inside, sometimes watching for up to an hour depending on the neighborhood. The place I mentioned in Memphis had a gated lot that you had to use the call box, and give the front desk your name, room number, and phone number before they would let you in. I liked that.

I check the window any time the thought crosses my mind. I check the door and window any time I hear voices in the hall or outside, respectively. I use every lock on the door, plus a chair if one's available. I make sure the curtains are overlapped well. My gun is never more than arm's reach, even if I'm taking a dump.

I've lived in hotels while pipelining. Some in really bad neighborhoods. I learned to take paranoia seriously.

Also at the place I stayed in in Memphis, it had a switch that would kill the power to the electronic card key reader.
