After several days without wifi, 3G or cell coverage, I'm hard at work in my hotel room. I'm plowing through emails and getting things done.
An hour or so later I noticed that my laptop battery was running low. I know that I plugged my laptop into the desktop plug, so I was confused. I started at the outlet and checked all of my connections. Everything looked fine but still no power. I checked everything again. And again.
I got up from my desk, hoping to find another outlet that might work. I looked down and wanted to slap my forehead.
Note to self: next time check that the desktop outlet is actually plugged in.
Bonus points if you can guess what hotel chain I'm in. I think you can't guess.
