The Hotel Awful - Not A Perfect World


a) Mrs Bobbins, a hotel guest
b) Kim Slob, a very rude reception clerk


Mrs Bobbins  Excuse me. I have a complaint

Kim Slob  Yeah? What do you want?

Mrs Bobbins  The cistern in my bathroom is leaking

Kim Slob  So? What do you want ME to do about it?

Mrs Bobbins  I want it fixed of course

Kim Slob  Uh-huh. The plumber is on holidays

Mrs Bobbins  That's not very satisfactory

Kim Slob  Don't blame ME. I only work here.

Mrs Bobbins  There's another problem too

Kim Slob  Yeah? Like what?

Mrs Bobbins  I've been here a week and nobody has changed the linen.

Kim Slob  Look lady, it's not a perfect world

Mrs Bobbins  It is certainly not a perfect hotel. The bill please. I'm leaving

Kim Slob  Easy come, easy go. You can't please everyone. [shrug]
