I’m in Atlanta for meetings today. During the wee hours I got up to use the hotel room bathroom, and after I was finished I decided to check the time on the clock radio next to the bed.
It read: 6:20.
Wait, 6:20? Crap, I’ve overslept!
So I got up and turned on the lights and began doing the work I needed to do before my meetings started, dealing with that jagged surge of adrenalin that you feel when you realize you’ve overslept. I started reading and answering emails on my iPhone, and then I noticed the time indicated on my phone — which was 4:20. Huh? I then went to my tablet as the tiebreaker, and it read 4:20, too.
So somebody had messed with the hotel room clock, moving it two hours ahead. Why would somebody do that? The only thing I can think of is that they thought it would be a funny, mean prank to give an unpleasant jolt to an unsuspecting traveler who was checking the time in the morning — because that’s the only time you look at a clock in a hotel room.
What kind of stupid, inconsiderate jerk would do such a thing? I’m guessing it was a Trump voter.
