Scariest thing to discover outside your hotel door at ACDA
Date: March 4, 2012
Wake up in the morning and open your hotel door, and hey, isn't that nice, the hotel provided a copy of the local morning paper to each room. Something to read at breakfast, and at least it's not USA Today.
The top headline on the paper reads "Reno casino gains extra time to restructure debt", which sound local, boring, and innocuous, until you realize the "casino" they're talking about is the hotel you're staying at, and the "extra time" is two more weeks getting to March 15, which means the previous deadline was, uh, yesterday? The hotel you're staying in is on the verge of bankruptcy?
I don't know exactly what happens when a hotel goes bankrupt, but it conjured up visions of us all being thrown out into the street with our luggage, while the sherriff padlocked the front doors. However, the two weeks' reprieve granted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (not sure why they're involved) evidently prevented that from happening, so we still had our reading sessions and stuff.
That sure didn't help breakfast go down any easier, though.
