Tolerance Zones

The Executive having rejected a ban
in public places, please note
in this hotel the snoring rooms
are situated at the rear
of the building, beside
the towel and linen store.
The management apologises
for any inconvenience to non-snorers
from stale snorts and grunts
soaring through the air conditioning
or lingering in corridors
and asks guests not to snore
in lifts between floors
nor in the restaurant between
the hours of four pm
and midnight. Ear plugs
are available at reception.
Thank you for
not snoring.
