Maid to Order

In the elevator tonight  I saw a housekeeping manager with a clipboard, and I asked her if there was a turn-down service. Looking at me inquiringly, I realized that she was not that proficient in English so I switched to my rudimentary Español (her name tag said she was from "Mexico") "Can I have a chocolate for the evening?"  She asked how many, and I said "Dos" or two.


I left the hotel and returned to find two cups of Hot Chocolate on my dresser.  My Spanish needs work I guess.

      I guess I am wondering how a person with limited to no English skills could be in this position? But then, hey what the heck, it's all good,

    The non English speaking Housekeeper appears to be the rule and not the exception.

      For safety's sake the person should at least know enough to say "no English" or "I will get someone who can help."
