TUCSON, AZ – Business traveler Steve Birdsong stumbled into the hotel’s breakfast room, groggy from getting little sleep due to an amorous couple in the room next door consummating their love all night.


Seasoned road warrior Steve Birdsong had an early meeting Tuesday morning but found himself in desperate need of a good night’s sleep. Sleep, however, was not in the cards as a couple in the adjacent room spent the entire night noisily making love.

When asked by an employee he was traveling with why he looked so haggard, Birdsong mumbled something unintelligible and nodded to the young couple strolling into the breakfast room, arm in arm.

“Dude, literally all night, man. They did not let up. I counted at least 5 times for her, man. Come on,” Birdsong remarked over his third cup of coffee, “Making us all look bad.”

Calls to the front desk went unanswered as the lightly staffed Marriott had no one working the night shift.

In a begrudging sign of respect, Birdsong did tip his hat to the young man on his way out of the breakfast room and added a well-intended “Congratulations” to his female companion.
