The Rich Are Different

We are visiting our financial planner tomorrow, and he has made arrangements for us to stay overnight in a hotel in Palo Alto.

The hotel would be the Four Seasons Silicon Valley.

ZOMG!

The bedroom is bigger than our family room. The BATHROOM is bigger than My Daughter's bedroom. And this is one of the Moderate rooms, not a Premier or a Suite.

In case you feel like ordering up a TV Snack, they offer popcorn, milk shakes, and a "Duck Confit and Aged Monterey Jack Quesadilla with Anise Scented Plum Sauce". $18. Now that's what I need to munch on while I'm watching football.

There are people who live like this. There are people who would consider this slumming. I may never get My Wife back into a Best Western.

We can't stop laughing. We have been in this room for an hour, and we just keep alternating between astonishment and laughter.

I am terrified to use the commode.

*sneezes, puts foot through opposite wall in room*

Careful, the commode charges per flush.

I know what you mean.
I took Kathy to The Greenbriar on our Wedding Night.

That's the place that Senators go for vacation, and in case of Nuclear War.

Just walking around the place makes my wallet want to bury it's head in the sand.

Luxury like that is... intimidating...

Re: I know what you mean.
Back when I worked for a company that would let you travel to conventions and classes, I was thrilled to be booked to an Embassy Suites, where you got a good breakfast for free and a nice room. I wonder what kind of job you have to have for your company to book you here?

Ah, well. I suppose I should shut up and enjoy. it's not like it's going to happen again soon.

Wait, financial planner? Does this have something to do with IBM?

As a matter of fact...
Something to do with it, like enabling me to retire from it one of these days.
