          Hotel Proprietor, How can you print such misleading information about me. You know, as well as I do that I did not use abusive and foul language, just describing your breakfast as it was. I certainly did not upset other guests as our conversation took place outside of the dining room. You have been far too economical with the truth as to what really happened and because you never bothered to,even address the real concerns that I had expressed says it all. Good luck to,all your guests that stay there.
