I’m chatting with my next door neighbor Sheri and I ask her, “How was your AirBnB experience in New Orleans?”
“Oh,” she replies, “it was ok. New Orleans was great and that was the main point. But the next time, we’ll look for the word ‘bed’ in the AirBnB listing.”
“What? You didn’t have a bed?”
“We had an air mattress,” she replies. “When we opened the door of our room the first morning, we saw seven other air mattresses on the dining room and living room floors. Somehow, we just hadn’t thought to check for a bed and it looks like the other guests hadn’t either.” Moral of the story: never underestimate the power of a word.
