Eheh! What a call

Just dozing off last night when the phone rang….

Pronto Bellaugello

An Italian voice – female;  “Hi I’m calling from an hotel in Città di Castello.  Senti, is it right that I am calling Bellaugello Gay Guest House?” Yes”  “Can you help me?  I have a friend – a client – a guest, he is gay and is lonely can you find someone to keep him company tonight?”

“Mi Scusi, but can you repeat that?!

“I have a friend a man who is gay and is looking for sex/company tonight and he has asked me to help him find someone, so I thought of you, you have a business for gay men and so therefore you can provide me with somebody.”

“I beg your pardon, did you day what I thought you said? Are you asking me to pimp somebody?” – incredulous is hardly the word….

And with that and a few excuses on the caller’s part we ended the call.  This morning at Breakfast  I related the story to the guys.  A wonderful comment from one or two of them, ‘you should have said yes, made him come over here, woken us all……!’

Reflecting later I just wondered what the owner of a prestigious five star hotel would say if I telephoned him to ask if he could procure somebody’s wife for one of my clients…..
