I've stayed in this particular fleabag several times before, but for once I got a ground-floor room and a parking space right outside of it. This meant I could just leave the door of the room ajar and make lots of small trips with the gear I brought with me for a one-week stay. After making the last trip, I turned to close the door and found an unwanted visitor in my room.
Somehow this pigeon had wandered into the room while I was carrying luggage and whatnot between my van and the hotel room. I said, "Shoo!" and the bird didn't move. I moved closer and it hopped a little bit and tried to get deeper into the room until I cut it off and tried to herd it toward the door. I actually ended up literally kicking it out the door. Even then the stupid bird didn't fly (possibly it's too fat to fly, in which case it should look out for the feral cats around here), but sort of hopped around a bit before ending up under my minivan where it sulked.
The pickings around here must be pretty good for these winged rats.
