We Have a Winner

The winner of the Stupid Tourist Contest is Jen.  Jen has won 2 Niagara Falls Tour tickets courtesy of eTours.to.  She won by submitting this story:

“Working at the lobby counter in one of the hotels on the falls we once had an irate woman come down to report someone on the custodial staff had obviously tampered with her cell phone. Apparently, when she turned her phone on that day she was dismayed to find some prankster had written then name “Roger” into her display. Well she was just livid and we were lucky she had the presence of mind to inform us rather than go straight to the police as she is sure a dignified hotel chain like ours would hate the bad publicity we would be sure to recieve if this ever got out. What’s worse, she couldn’t seem to get rid of this “Roger business” and feared anyone capable of such hijinks may not have stopped at just that and if we thought she was going to be responsible for any long distance charges well didn’t we have another thing coming!

I think we all deserved medals for maintaining our “professional faces” while we explained to her Roger’s is a Canadian cellular company and her phone will switch back as soon as she returns to the USofA. Not gonna lie though, I did experience that twinge of Schadenfreude as she muttered an apology and slinked back to the elevators. ;oP”
