Coffee and Chocolates at Midnight

We had out little coffeemaker and tried to make coffee. No luck. I set it for 240 with the plug – nothing. I set it for 120 with the transformer – nothing again. Finally, at 11:30pm, I called the front desk. They sent up an electrician, who was tracing the connectors with a voltage meter. He finally determined that there is a master light switch by the front door that controls ALL power in the room! He turned that on and suddenly the unit started heating.

In the meantime, Momma was already in bed, and he was looking very nervous and started to stutter. I guess he decided that two women were too much and practically ran from the room. So, we had coffee and chocolates at midnight.
