Oh this was a sad day that broke my faith in the Super 8 motel chain.
The room seemed fine at first glance. I had some dinner, took a shower. Then as I was settling into bed, I see a massive dark blob creeping along the wall out of the corner of my eye. Oh dear lord, it was a massive cockroach. And I was so ready to fall asleep after a long day in the Everglades.
It was about 12:30 am and I was absolutely exhausted, I couldn't contemplate the prospect of moving to another room or hotel. I went to the front desk, and the woman gives this chagrin smile, shrugs her shoulders, and says, "It's Florida. There's cockroaches here."
I just love how low-end motels use the "there's cockroaches in Florida" line to excuse the presence of cockroaches in their establishment.
She hands me a big spray can of insecticide and tells me that at least there aren't little bugs in my room. Why? I ask. She tells me that little bugs are a sign that the house is dirty.
Well, I hate to break it to you, but cockroaches are a pretty good sign that the house is dirty too.
