How to Fail in the Bed and Breakfast Business: Case #284RE3
Sunday, July 24, 2011

1. Have a yappy dog greet visitors with a loud, aggressive bark.

2. Hang a AAA sign outside but tell your guests you no longer give AAA discounts ("I guess we should take it down -- right?")

3. Decorate the house with statues of babies and crucifixes, some of them three feet high.

4. Without knowing the political persuasion of your guests, engage them in a rant about Democrats and food stamps and white trash.

I should've shared with you my four-part screening interview for prospective bed and breakfast lodging:

1. Do you have a yappy dog?
2. Do you offer AAA discounts?
3. Do you feature statues of babies and crucifixes of any height?
4. Do you rant? About anything?

Feel free to use this in your future travels.
