Woke up this morning to find the bill under my door indicating I'd been checked out of my room. Hilarity ensued, as I'm not actually leaving Omaha til tomorrow, and this is the week of the College World Series, which is apparently the most hotel-intensive sporting event this side of Paris Hilton's road rally performances. In other words, No Room at the Inn. Luckily, as I was already checked in on a corporate reservation, the palatial La Quinta seemed willing to extend my stay by a day. So I will not be sleeping in my rental car tonight.

That is all. You may shop as usual, no need to return to your homes.

What if I usually shop at home? (Actually, it's around next Thursday that I plan to grab a whole lot of loot from Amazon.[com|co.uk], but still, there's the weekly CD mailorder to do etc...)

Also, I am at home, so I see not how I can return unless I leave, and may I point out that it's pouring outside and I'm scared to go into the kitchen as I bet it's leaking and the floor's soaked?

I've seen a few of these lately -- are we just noticing more or is the hotel industry behaving badly?
