    Cadillac Chief Johan de Nysschen Evades Arrest after Misunderstanding

With my accent, she misunderstood, concluding I had said she had a hot ass, which of course was an entirely different thing. Following intervention by the security people, at least we clarified the misunderstanding, even though I still had no room. Which by now, having been threatened with arrest and a jail cell, seemed like a really good deal.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    Johan is JUST the leader Cadillac needs, someone who doesn't take himself too seriously.... but still 'gets' it.

    What, is it April already?

    Have we reached such a level of PC Insanity that someone wants to call s'curity or the coppers when someone either calls you a hard ass or says you have a hot ass?

    It depends on the person IMHO.

    If Johan were as smooth with women as I am, nothing bad would have happened. In fact, he may have been able to get something out of said "hot ass"...

    Why was he being arrested even if he had said the hotel counter girl had a hot ass?

    Interesting situation. A Hotel messes- up and gives away a room intended for what can only be called a "high-value" guest, the clerk shrugs it off , then threatens to have the now Non-Guest arrested.

    People should read the link. It was all just a funny story being retold and embellished as entertainment... Like my father used to say; never let the truth get in the way of a good story....

    I think we're all forgetting one very important question. Did the hotel clerk indeed have a "Hot Ass"?

    I wonder how often Cadillac employees and guests will be encouraged to stay at this establishment?
