I'm finally back at home for some much needed family time after a couple of months of travel. After a couple of dozen hotel rooms and a hundred restaurants and who knows how many pleasant faces of the service industry army, one or two stand out. I was in Minneapolis before the North Pole came to visit them, there for but a few hours at a Residence Inn in Edina. Their shuttle service was busy in the morning when I needed it to return to the airport, and I asked for a taxi. The night person who checked me in, Keith I think his name is, said he would take care of everything. The next morning, I discovered he had arranged an alternate shuttle driver to take me. I used to work at a hotel front desk and know taxi companies often tip hotel clerks. Not only did Keith forfeit that tip, when I tried to tip him myself he said it was part of his job and I should tip the driver, instead. The hotel was fine, nice rooms and a cold shower, not all that unlike the couple of dozen others I visited. I'd like to think the entire staff at the hotel in Edina is like Keith. As Christmas approaches, I'd like to think we all are.
