The online advice covers situations when hyperactive young people in your resort hotel make ear-splitting noise at 3 am. It says don’t get mad, just politely ask them to quiet down.

Then, the report predicts, they’ll comply and be all quiet, sober, friendly and respectful to mature you. This may have been possible a couple of generations ago, but don’t expect it today. The kids now are there to have fun, and are sure to ignore old codgers griping at them.

Prices have gone up just a teeny bit since then. So recently, when a Texas guy hit his golden years, he priced nursing home vs Holiday Inn living he had experienced in many years of travel.

Recently, the airline and Coca Cola gave out in-flight snarky napkins along with food and drink servings to passengers. The printed messages suggested they write their phone numbers on the napkins to entice other “plane crush” passengers to call them for dates after the flight.

After many complaints that the promotion resembled graffiti scrawled on public toilet walls, the companies profusely apologized to any passengers who were offended by the napkins. Suddenly, the get-lucky messages disappeared. What’s next for flight passengers…invitations to join the Mile High club?
