Its good to know make friends with the hotel security. I'm in a band and one evening we're having a little jam
session in our room (unamplified and low volume) and this punk teenager who's parents had ditched him for a night on the town, decided to try to get us kicked out. Unknown to him we'd already given the security a pack of cigs because he was out and made friends with the night manager. So we could do no wrong.
