I was on my first trip to Peoria. I woke up and was getting ready to leave to come back home. I was in the process of getting cleaned up and ready to leave the hotel. At one point, I have used the toilet and it overflowed. Not a big mess, but there was lots of water in the floor. I used towels to contain the water to the bathroom and mop up the water. I thought I did a pretty good job of cleaning the place up and continued to get ready. While I was shaving, the phone rang. I answered and it was the front desk. The lady said, “Mr. Wheeler, are you having problems with water in your room?” I said yes but I thought that I had contained it. She said, “Well, the water is leaking through to the room below and the electrical room is right below yours.” I assured her that I had gotten the water up and that it wasn’t still running. This seemed to be enough to ease her concerns and she let me go. I went back to finish shaving and getting ready. A couple of minutes later, the phone rang again. It was the front desk again. The lady said, “Mr. Wheeler, I’m going to come up there and check on the room.” I said, “Look, I am naked. Give me 5 minutes and I’ll be dressed and out of here.” They let me clear out of the room before they came in. I never heard anymore from the hotel. And I never stayed there again.
