"Maybe We can Share a Room?"

When you travel, you can run into strange people and events. This happened to me as I was staying (at a Hampton Inn) in San Diego on business.

I arrived late, and while looking for a parking spot, I noticed a pickup truck following me. After parking, and while getting my suitcase from the trunk, a fellow gets out of the truck and said: "Man, these rooms are expensive." I agreed, saying something to the effect that this was San Diego.

He said, "Are you getting a room here?"
I said: "Yes."
He said" Maybe we can share a room?"

I said, as I drug my suitcase past him, "No, a couple of agents and I are sharing a room-- the FBI is having us cut back on expenses."


He got in his pickup and drove off.
