you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

i work at a hotel bar. i get 20-year-olds flirting, 30-year-olds flirting, 40-year-olds calling me ashton kutcher and flirting, 50-year-olds saying their kids are in college and they're lonely, 60-year-olds flirting...
it really doesn't stop no matter what the age is, and it tends to be magnified in hotel bar situations where wedding rings slide off easily and what happens in greensboro stays in greensboro.

That is sad.
Not you, the people.

you see it all, hotel bars are the epicenter of people looking to get away with something sketchy. the one i work in is attached to the third-largest business convention center on the east coast, so we get thousands of people cycling through for various business conferences and conventions, so there's a significant level of invisibility (or the illusion thereof) if you're unhappy in your marriage and out of state for a conference and surrounded by attractive people looking for a lay.
i've seen an incredible amount of married people walking off to the elevators with random people from the bar, wedding rings sliding discreetly off, etc.

My wife and I both worked there back in the late 80s early 90s, me as the F&B Purchasing Agent and her as Front Desk Manager. The stories she can tell you about those kinds of things and then the follow ups where desperate spouses showed up demanding access to the rooms.
Glad to hear with everything that's changed at that property some things are still the same.
