A Very British Soap Opera

Note: I am generally suspicious of those “chain jokes” that endlessly make the rounds of the Internet, but one that recently landed in my in box caught my eye. I cannot vouch for the veracity of what follows, but it purports to be an actual correspondence carried out between the guest of a London hotel and its staff.

True or not, it has the saving grace of being amusing.

Thank you,

S. Berman
