During the conference I stayed at a fancy hotel. For some reason I thought that we did not get breakfast with the room and as the breakfast cost 1,00000,000, Euros I did not partake but grabbed a croissant on the way to the meetings. Checking out, I notice that there was room and breakfast on my bill. The clerk assured me that breakfast was included. I had thus missed six days of free breakfast. Such pain.
This is not the first time. Traveling by boat from Marseille to Oran a long time ago, I spent my last pennies on a cabin class ticket and had nothing left for food. I did not eat for 2.5 days but watched the people in the dining hall shovel down everything delicious and slurp fine wines.
As we entered port I asked one of the attendants how much the meals cost. He looked confused and said they were included with cabin class tickets. Such pain.
