“You blog; I do luggage.”

Meet Mario. He does luggage. And he’s damn good at it.

My flight didn’t leave until 4:47pm on Sunday.  Because of this I had the pleasure of walking around Chi-town with Tara and Heather.  *Lou was taking both Tara and I to the airport, so it was only natural that we hang.   I was thrilled because I didn’t have a chance to do that with either.  It was special and I look forward to getting to know these two friends more.

Back to Mario:

I had my bags with me, as I was checked out, Sunday morning.  Luckily the Sheraton offers a service where they will hold your bags.  I had three…my big suitcase, the swag [that I just got and didn’t get in fights for] duffle bag, and my laptop.  Mario proceeded to attach a tag to my main suitcase.

“Ummm shouldn’t we put one on each bag? I mean, what if they get lost?”

“No; one will do.”

“Are you sure?”

“Look.  You blog; I do luggage. I’m sure!”

And sure enough when I came back my bags were intact.  None were lost.   After all, I had Mario to handle things.

*Lou — He who will have one whole post dedicated to his kindness!

    Hee hee, “You blog; I do luggage.”
    Sorta makes me wonder how many times he laid that line down over the weekend! He’s ADORABLE! :)

    HAHAHA! I remember laughing SO hard and thinking DAY-UM when he said that to you but it was so hilarious.
    I’m SO glad that I got to spend time with you & that I am no longer a Chipotle virgin ;)

    can’t wait to get to know you more!

    OMG – I LOVED Mario.

    He busted his butt getting my bags because I was sure I would miss my shuttle. Then I ran out and it wasn’t there yet so I ran in and tipped him properly.

    But anyway…I am sooooooo bummed we didn’t hang this weekend. I feel like I spent half the conference trying to meet you!

  4. That is fantastic! Love it. Great pic honey.

    I have heard some great things about the staff at Sheraton! Glad he got to be included!

    I was in stitches when he said that. I loved the expression on his face too. He was awesome.

    Hanging with you and Heather was wonderful. You both are such lovely ladies. I had a great time.

    I remember when you came over and told us what he had said. It was funny then – it’s still funny now. And yes – you DO blog.

    I miss you. That is all.

    Still thinking about how sad it was to say goodbye to you. You are one of my most favorite humans.

    Cool snap. Mario looks like a cool guy, too. Next time I’m in Chi-town, I’ll have to look for him at the Sheraton!

  13. He was so friggin nice. I did valet/luggage at the Disney hotel where I worked back in the olden days, but I was never that nice.

    That is a great line, if you do a job do it well. You should already have a sturdy luggage tag on you bags anyway, especially on your laptop. A sturdy leather strapped tag with your name and number is great and will put your mind at ease.
