On Monday, the second season of Hotel Impossible premiered. All of you who have been reading my blog for a while may remember this TV show from how it demonstrated just how filthy hotel rooms can get due to women. The most recent episode was a metaphor and a microcosm of women in the economy, and the damage women cause to it.
On Monday’s episode the host, Anthony Melchiorri, goes to the hotel in Puerto Rico that’s in serious trouble. He meets with the owner, a man, and the general manager, a woman. He finds out that the owner has decades of experience in the hotel business which confuses Melchiorri to no end because his hotel shouldn’t be in trouble. He also finds out the owner and the general manager are married. Later, Melchiorri meets with the owner’s son who informs him that he was the general manager for a couple of years but gave up due to interference from the current general manager (his stepmother). Since the owner’s son gave up on being the general manager, the current general manager ran the hotel almost into the ground.
Melchiorri has to get the owner to fire his wife which he eventually does. The owner’s wife throws a tantrum about it as you would expect. Melchiorri and the owner have to interview and hire a new general man. The candidate they select is a man who during the duration of the rest of the episode did a good job getting things back into shape. At the end of the episode there was a blurb about how the new general manager has quit. Likely, that was due to interference by the owner’s wife.
This episode of Hotel Impossible is a real good case study in feminine destruction of the economy. The owner over decades learns a business and builds a business like many men do. He marries a woman who completely wrecks it in the space of a few years like many women do. (She could be a metaphor for wives wrecking men or women wrecking the workplace.) He gets forced into a position where he has to grow a new backbone to deal with the problem, his wife. (This is a bit atypical, but it does happen.) He has to call him other men to fix the problems his wife caused (Melchiorri and the new general manager). When women get confronted with the results of their actions, they turn to emotional abuse just like the owner’s wife did. (If this was in the US proper, I’m sure she would have turned to divorce and/or law suits as well.) The son decides to go his own way (from the perspective of this microcosm) just like many men are currently doing. Melchiorri and the owner also have a conversation about how hotels are built on systems (like any business) which his wife was against. Systems are something men are always building. (This includes technology since all technology can be characterized as a system.) In the end, women are still causing trouble.
Everything that happened on this episode is a good metaphor for how women are wrecking the modern economy.
