Unexpected Niceness

Awhile ago, I stayed at the Jefferson Clinton hotel in Syracuse, NY. The trip was good and the hotel was lovely, and I enjoyed my stay. Some of what made the trip more than a standard business trip were the little touches at the hotel.

The icing on the cake, for me, was the "Do Not Disturb" sign. The "keys"in this hotel were electronic cards, so the DND sign was a little unit that went inside the key slot, and said "LEAVE ME ALONE (please).

I loved this, because it matched my mood precisely, Don't bother me, but I am not going to be a jerk about it. I liked this so much that snapped a photo of it during the trip. Tonight, I got a Flickr message from Jefferson Clinton. Apparently they were surfing the web and came across the photo. The message reads:

Hi Snack Shack [SIC]:
Just a quick note from the Jefferson Clinton Hotel. Came across your post and wanted to mail you one of our Leave Me Alone Signs since you liked it so much. You can send us a message through FlickrMail or email me at sb@bhphotels.com
Thanks again for being our guest and we hope to see you again!
Best regards, 
Steve Busch, Managing Partner
How great is that? Soon, I'll have my very own "Leave Me Alone" sign. I may very well punch a hole in this and wear it on my belt with my office access badge after all.
