so I'm here visiting our Chicago office for the rest of the week. -weather is a pinch colder than NY, I like it -streets are reminiscent of some parts of NY except more empty/less traffic -security is hilarious, I walk into the office building past security - zero questions asked. back home you can't get passed security in office buildings & always have to get clearance. overall it's awesome, a lot of business upscale chicks around, none of that hoodrat shit found everywhere in NY. BUT, I'm told that's because I'm in the nice part of Chicago. I'm staying at he Aloft Chicago City Center & the experience is a joke though (funny, not enough to get me mad at all). I check in & the kid asks me "you checked in yesterday". I tell him that's impossible, & not a moment later a suit comes up & casually says with a frustrated face " there's a woman all situated in my room & I walked in on her". the kids asks in return "you sure it wasn't a cleaning woman?" hahaha fucking hilarious. then the kid & two other of the staff argue about using their inhouse booking/checkin program incorrectly. I finally got my room, but now just moments ago I returned & my card didn't work. I go down & the night staff, although knowledgeable, is made up of plump round women. thought I'd share.
