    I worked in a nice hotel for a few years. You couldn't pay me enough to work the desk.

    The stories of people renting porn and then denying it at the checkout desk were as numerous as the stars.

    If they deny it loudly enough during a busy time, would you remove the charge as a courtesy?

    "I DID NOT RENT PORNOGRAPHY AND I AM OFFENDED YOU WOULD BILL ME FOR THAT SMUT. WHAT KIND OF SHADY HOTEL BILLS THEIR VISITORS FOR PORN THEY DIDN'T WANT?!"

    The brutal extended curb-stomping that Glory received in the season 5 finale is the most cathartic scene in the entire series.

    It's one of my favorites.

    Dammit, I can't find the clip on youtube!

    But the rest of you non-Buffy watchers, picture this. Buffy has a giant Thor-like hammer, and is repeatedly bashing in Glory's face with it, occasionally making quips such as "and my arm's not even tired yet!"

    It was amazing.

    This kinda sound horrific!

    Varied reasons. I was just room service so I heard it second hand.

    I have never previously uttered (or typed) these words, but I'm obviously getting older:

    I could sure go for a massage right now. I think I'm focusing on my back too much at da gym.

    $4000 for a $96 room only makes sense if every room is reserved, though.

    The stories of people renting porn and then denying it at the checkout desk were as numerous as the stars.

    How about someone that when confronted with the receipt decided to give a thoughtful and concise review of the porno in question? I'd laugh my balls off if I ever witnessed that.

    In real life I'm naturally pretty introverted, like even around my friends I usually prefer to be a listener rather than a talker. But I also used to coach speech and debate and I've worked in the hospitality industry for years, so I can play a pretty charming fucker for a while, it's just kind of tiring.

    Teach me how to schmooze, Kana.

    Don't slouch, stand up straight, keep your weight on your toes, leaning ever so slightly towards your conversational partner. Don't be afraid to use your hands in conversation, and don't tuck them into your pockets or hold them in front of you, it makes you seem standoffish. Smile and enjoy the other person's presence, even if they're actually lame. When you're standing face to face keep your shoulders squared to theirs and maintain eye contact - without trying to Stare Deeply Into Their Eyes. Stand a liiittle closer than your instincts tell you to, because if you need this advice than you're naturally standoffish already (but not creepy close, and if they step away don't follow). If you're just being introduced be delighted to meet them, shake their hand and notice how they respond - some people respond positively to casual physical contact, for others it's hugely offputting. Don't insult yourself unless it's over something that you can be genuinely amusing about. Steer the conversation into things they want to talk about, and provide positive reinforcement to their conversation. "You work at Microsoft, that sounds amazing!", "That's hilarious!" etc. Don't be a fucking braggart. When in doubt just ask positive follow-up questions. Remember that the world is amazing, and being able to have this conversation with someone, even if they're a bore, is delightful. Even people who don't like to talk about themselves can be drawn out of their shells by someone delighted to talk about them. Include them in "us" sentence formations, act like they're part of your crowd. Watch their own body language and keep the conversation on topics where they respond positive physically. Keep a handy stock of funny stories about yourself in your brain.

    On the advanced level you can pay attention to their social group and adjust your vernacular to compensate. Generally talk faster and with more dynamism to younger crowds, slower and more clearly to the older crowd. A less educated audience is generally going to be more comfortable if you're not using words like "vernacular", and vice versa. Pitching your voice up indicates social inferiority, pitching it down indicates self-confidence, especially to a male audience. People change the pitch of their voice depending on who they're talking to quite often without even realizing it, pay attention to your own habits and catch yourself from sending the wrong messages.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    You can't understand unless you watched the whole season.

    Glory is cruel, vicious, brutal and malevolent.

    And on top of it she is invincible, super strong, a goddess, and she knows it. Every time she shows up she beats the living fuck out of the Buffy and the gang and emotionally tortures them to boot.

    She is, by far, the most irredeemably loathsome villain in Buffy's rogues gallery. The season 5 finale was a much needed catharsis because after watching that cheating bitch steamroll the protagonists with the literal equivalent of God-mode cheat code enabled, she was finally put on something like even footing with Buffy and Buffy beat her miserable face into a pulp and it was awesome.
