I generally stay in 30 to 40 motels a year and always take advantage of continental breakfasts whenever they have them, but what I saw Thursday morning took it to an extreme never seen before.
We were staying at the Super 8 motel in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and trying to get used to all this new-found cold we had encountered yesterday.
This was a better-than-average continental breakfast and even featured home made waffles, biscuits and gravy and sausage links.
I'm finishing up and this lady comes into the breakfast area wearing a moo moo-type dress and carrying a large cloth bag. She then proceeded to pull all sorts of containers out of the bag and then started one of the grandest assaults I've ever seen on a breakfast.
She made around eight pieces of toast, took six muffins, then two to three cereals. Then, she made three waffles and put a huge dent in the biscuits and grave and took I don't know how many sausage links. She put these in the containers as that bag just expanded and expanded.
I'm not sure what army she was feeding, but the desk clerk saw it all and said nothing.
Hopefully, it was not all for her, but even so, it's actions like this that just ruin a good thing for those of us who don't abuse the system.
It Was Amazing. --RoadDog
