From my desk in the office

Hello <<First Name>>

Thanks to everyone who booked with me this year and long may you continue to do so. To those who haven't please consider doing so next year. Most tours and airfares you see online I can offer the same price. And I make a few dollars. 

And remember I use my own operators in various countries of the world which means better prices and better support on the ground.

Hope the fat man in red looks after you and I'll raise a wee dram to you on Hogmanay.

The man says, "Yes, I'm in room 858.   You need to send someone to my room immediately.

I'm having  an argument with my wife and she says she's going to jump out of the  window."

The desk clerk says, "I'm sorry sir, but that's a personal matter."

The man replies, "Listen, you  idiot.   The window won't open.. and that's clearly a maintenance issue.
