Latest technology in wake-up calls

Sometimes things happen down here that just make me chuckle. For example, last week I stayed in a hotel with one of our mission trip teams. I went up to the front desk and asked for a 4:45 wake-up call the next morning. The guy disappears behind the counter for a minute, reappears with a pink alarm clock, pops a battery into it, and hands it to me.

“Here you go,” he said.

A few minutes later, one of our other staff members walked in and asked for a wake-up call.

“Sorry,” the guy says, “we’re all out.”
