Is what the female executive-looking type said to her male counterpart this morning while rounding the bend of the Chicago River.
Ironically, “my” Keith is in the midst of a communication breakdown snafu at the large corporation where he is employed. Being I have worked at the same environmental law boutique for over 18 years - I don’t have a clue as to how Corporate America operates.
Keith’s company has a gaggle of people in from out of town this week. Keith worked with a local hotel setting up rooms for the incoming masses and, in staying with Company policy, booked either two women to a room or two guys to a room. The whole sharing of a hotel room thing wasn’t stated in black and white to them - but should have been known - Corporate Company Policy and all. So, upon arriving at the hotel, a few of them weren’t too happy. Most, if not all, were guys that were very, very grumpy. I guess they complained LOUDLY to the hotel staff and then the hotel management complained LOUDLY to Keith the next day.
Personally, I find it strange to make employees share their hotel rooms when traveling. Especially, because of the nature of the beasts at times, guys sharing with guys – guys that, more than likely, they don’t even know - which could lead to all sorts of situations ( i.e. John Candy – Steve Martin – PT&A).
Those of you in the know about Corporate America – is this common, acceptable or wrong?
