@Pantheist In addition to checking in guests and taking care of them, we run all the financials for the hotel for the 24 hour period. It’s just a lot of spreadsheets and sending the right documents to the right people. We reconcile all the money the hotel takes in and process all kinds of things to do with reservations you’d never even think needs to be done.
We are charged with being solely in charge of the hotel for ten hours. It’s a little daunting, but I love it.
@therealjrn KittySprinkles is probably asleep by now. Here’s a bit of a story for you:
The night Max wore his wolf suit, and made mischief of one kind, and another, his mother called him “Wild Thing!” and Max said “I’ll eat you up!” So he was sent to bed without eating anything at all.
That very night, in Max’s room, a forest grew, and grew, and grew, until the walls became a forest, and the ceiling became the world all around. An ocean tumbled by, with a private boat for Max…
The above is from memory, and I hesitate to reproduce the whole thing, due to respect for copyright, and my love for Sendak. If you still yearn for a story, I recommend “In the Night Kitchen” (also by Sendak), which seems fitting and appropriate for the night shift.
