The first time Mr. Walters stayed here, the hotel staff was scared to death. He seems more like a military officer
than a business executive.
Mr. Walters: Send the barber up to my room. I need to have my hair cut. I need a shave, too.
Have someone pick up the suit I left on the sofa.
I must have it cleaned and pressed for this evening.
Desk Clerk: Right away, Mr. Walters.
Mr. Walters never smiles.
You might think that he is an unkind person, but you would be wrong.
Last April, Frederick, one of our cooks, became ill.
When he was in hospital, he received a note and a generous gift from Mr. Walters.
Everyone here likes Mr. Walters very much, but we never show it. It would embarrass him.
Look over there. Those are the Sweeneys.
They're newlyweds on their honeymoon.
They're staying in our honeymoon suite.
Here comes Mr. Sweeney.
Mr. Sweeney: Hello. Could you do me a favor, please?
Desk Clerk: Of course, sir. What would you like?
Mr. Sweeney: My wife and I are going to the theater this afternoon.
While we're out, please have the florist send up a dozen roses to our suite.
I want it to be a surprise.
Desk Clerk: I will be happy to do it, sir. What time will you be returning?
