Characters: the front desk clerk and myself
Time: 1 a.m. in the morning
We open on an exhausted traveler, who had already been kept awake by the noise of the other hotel guests coming through the paper-thin walls. She is standing in a run-down lobby, which smells faintly of pee.
Me: There is a mouse in my room. It ran into my bag and than ran out along the top of the desk and down the side of the bed.
Clerk: Yes, there are a lot of mice in Amsterdam.
Me: I am not staying in a room with a mouse.
Clerk: It is quite common here. We are near the park and they come in.
Me: No, I am not staying in a room with a mouse.
Clerk: Fine, I will move you to a room in the basement.
Me: Expedia charged me over $350 dollars for this room. This is unacceptable.
Clerk: Shrugs. Take it up with them.
