Update On The Hotel Thing

So, my stepmom sent me an email saying that she thought the hotel I booked her and my dad into looked like a "college dorm room."

I sent this response:

Dad and Mom

It's a four star hotel.

Do you have any idea how much it makes me feel like shit when I am so broke I'm wondering if I can afford meat this weekend and you guys are telling me that a 150 euro (i.e $240) a night hotel is too "inexpensive" for you.

This is the link to the hotel

http://www.mercure.com/mercure/fichehotel/gb/mer/3043/fiche_hotel.shtml

It's the third best hotel in the city.

The first best hotel is the sofitel but that place is almost 300 euros (i..e. $500) a night, which is crazy.

It's a two minute walk from the Mecure (where I've booked you into) to the Comedie and a four minute walk to my apartment.

I'm not sure why you think it looks like a college dorm. Perhaps you clicked on a bad link.

But, seriously, I''m broke. If you are wealthy enough to afford really expensive hotel rooms can I please borrow $500 bucks from you, because I could fucking use it.

I'll pay you back when you are here.

Bart.
