"I'm supposed to blow everybody out of their chairs to bring up the piano just for him. What can you do? You can't turn it up or it drown everything out. The mix is fine but he standing there expecting you to turn it up. So I turn up the volume of a knob on a channel I'm not using. Then I smile and shrug."

My brother once worked in a Big name hotel as a night porter. One night he had a rather strange lady check in - all sorts of requests. Room Service - kitchen closed - slapped a couple of pieces of bread etc together.

TV not working - well Adelaide TV closed at midnight in those days.

Curtains too short - tugged them 'Now they're longer ma'am'" - she was happy.

Went on till the police turned up asking if anyone had seen the escapee from the funny farm down the road ...
