    My Average Night Part Two 1:15 am-

    I left of around midnight or one, depending on if it is a weekday or a weekend. Really balancing everything takes just about ten minutes. This is under optimum conditions. That is if the Front Desk crew did everything the way they are supposed to do things. A lot of times they screw the pooch on credit cards and balancing direct bills. Now this may take some time it depends on how bad the Front Desk screwed up. But even this will take no more than a hour. So for a time frame point of view I always start the audit at either 12:35 (last bus) or as soon as the bar closes (one or two).

    The actual Audit process is done by the computer. The most interaction I deal with is switching the back up tapes. Really hard. The Audit takes just about two hours start to finish. And those two hours I am of course surfing the net. Generally during this time of night I have no customer interaction. Once the Audit is done I print two sets of reports. One set is all of the essential reports I need to fill out my simple little audit report. The other set of reports are for lazy managers (who despite having computer access to the actual function of printing these report) that are just to lazy or incompetent to print the reports themselves.

    The reports take about an hour or less. The time now is about three in the morning. The Audit usually finishes around two and another hour for the reports. Now from three until eight when I leave all I have to do is fill out the daily. A simple worksheet that takes five minutes tops. Once again I’m surfing the web. How do you think I got my redesign done? At work. Most of all of my posts are done at work. I can’t remember the last time I did an update from home. Doing this at work is just more convenient for me.

    And that’s just about it. I do put all of the paperwork and reports into a big envelope and put over by the accountants door. In the morning I do have to deal with guests. But again its not a big deal. I punch out at eight or later if I’m milking the clock and then I get the hell out of the hotel. And that’s my average night.

    Kids These Days? 5:05 am-

    Have you looked at the USA Today yet this morning? All I can say is what the fuck is wrong with kids these days? Sorry for swearing, but this is getting crazy. Charles “Andy” Williams is now to be almost as infamous as Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The only difference between Williams and the Columbine duo is that Williams didn’t kill himself. I think it’s a shame Williams didn’t snuff out his own life. Is that harsh? I don’t think so.

    So what is it? Is this teen killing spree phenomenon the result of these kids being bullied? Is it games such as Doom and Quake? About being bullied, isn’t that a fact of life? Isn’t that part of our culture? I just can’t buy into the “being bullied” excuse. Nor do I buy into the blame that’s put on video games and movies. I’m 28 and I never remember any of this kind of thing happening when I was in high school. And what about our parents generation? Never happened when they went to school. And our parents generation had killings all over TV. From the various assassinations to the classic cartoons of the day. And our parents got to see a guy killed live on TV.

    Well none of us before this recent generation of youngsters have gone whacko. And I played Doom, so I should have went on a killing spree if games like Doom are really to blame. So is it just these kids that are all fucked up? I mean that has to be it right? It’s got to be the kids these days. But what exactly is the culprit behind them? Is it that guns are easier to get a hold of? That most be it. Or are kids these days just mentally unbalanced?

    It’s got to the point that I don’t want to go down to my old high school to visit Mr. Peterson (Social commentary? I’m trying Jeff) because I’m afraid of those kids man. Kids today just scare the shit out of me. The only way you will see me down at the high school is if I know the kids are out of school. Or someone get me a flak jacket.

    Now in defense of “kids these days” I do know a couple of nice kids. One of them is Adrian (a frequent reader) who to the eye seems like a nice kid. I’m kidding. Adrian is a good kid. Then there’s Brad (another reader). Both of them are smart. And I would be really disappointed if these guys ever did this kind of thing. Because they now better. I have had the chance to talk to both of them a number of times and I don’t see this behavior in them. So why are these kids that do this kind of thing different from Adrian and Brad? Answer? I don’t know.

    Can it be the upbringing? I think if anyone is to blame it’s the parents of these whack job kids. We are what we are because of are upbringing and our surroundings. So if these kids home life are shit maybe that’s the reason? I mean the Columbine kids filmed videos showing their explosives and weaponry. How is it my parents knew I had Playboys under my bed yet these parents of these kids can’t seem to find these weapons? So that’s it right? Blame the parents. Well I’m not even so sure of that. Maybe someone smarter than me can explain this to me.

    And what about the teachers? Can they be blamed? I learned a lot from my teachers. Or I should say “I learned a lot from the teachers I paid attention to.” I of course don’t buy this either. Don’t you think these teachers should be scared? And what about when the teachers start bitching about their pay? Don’t you think they deserve a raise because of recent events. I would at least expect hazard pay for them.

    So in the end I don’t have answers. I just have more questions. So how about Adrian or Brad sounding off on kids your age? And could I get any Teachers to give me their say? Or anyone give me a reasonable explanation to this whole thing. Send your response to @hotelblues.com.
