FADE IN: HOTEL GOLDEN
 
A boutique hotel. Marble floor. Elegant mahogany furniture. A young lady in a black uniform (SUZANNA) is sitting behind the reception desk.
The door creaks open, and in comes a new client, a tanned woman with bleached hair (KAREN). She sits down on at the reception desk.
 
KAREN (TALKING ON THE PHONE)
And then I called him an idiot and punched him in the face.
He’s not talking to me anymore. Men are idiots.
 
SUZANNA (SMILING)
 Good morning, Madam. How can I help you?
 
KAREN(TALKING ON THE PHONE)
 Every single man is nothing more than a swine.
If I were God, I would get all men neutered.
 
Karen puts her phone aside.
 
KAREN
I have a reservation here. Karen Basset-Montgomerency.

 
Karen grabs her phone. Suzanna checks something in her booking system.
 
KAREN (TALKING ON THE PHONE)
 This is the fifteenth male who has refused to meet me. Tell me why.
Tell me why. What makes all men hide from me?
 
SUZANNA
Excuse me, Madam, but there is no reservation under the name Karen Basset-Montgomerency.
 
KAREN(TALKING ON THE PHONE)
I will kill Joe. He is an idiot. Hang on,
I have some business to settle here
. Yes, at a hotel.
She does not see my reservation, can you imagine?
 
SUZANNA
It seems we have no reservation under your name, Madam.
Do you happen to know your reservation ID?
 
 
KAREN (TALKING ON THE PHONE)
I will call you later. The idiots don’t have my reservation. Reservation ID.
They are expecting me to know my reservation ID! What else should I know?
My birth date? My social security ID? Atrocious.
 
SUZANNA
Do you remember any details of your reservation?
The date, the credit card number?

Karen turns off her phone and sighs.
 
KAREN (ROLLING HER EYES)
What else should I remember, missy?
 
SUZANNA
It seems your reservation does not exist in our system.
Could you please give me more information so that I can verify it?
  
KAREN (SLAMMING HER FIST ON THE TABLE)
Where’s your manager, missy?
Listen, you half-wit, I paid for this room, I want this room.
I don’t care about your system, understood?
 
SUZANNA
I can understand your frustration, but I am doing my best to solve this problem.
It appears there is no reservation under your name.
 
Karen jumps to her feet and begins to pace around the room.
 
KAREN (SHOUTING)
Is this how you treat your clients?
Do you know who I am?
 
Karen grabs one of the flower pots and tosses it at Suzanna. The flower pot smashes against the desk.
 
 SUZANNA
 Could you please refrain from such behaviour?
If you would sit for a while, I will call my manager.
Otherwise, I will need to call security.
 
Karen grabs her phone.
 KAREN (TALKING ON THE PHONE)
 It’s me again. Do you know they don’t want to let me in?
Stupid imbeciles.It is appaling.
I will dislike them, definitely. I will tag them on Twitter.
 
SUZANNA
Could you please refrain from using such offensive words, Madam?
 
KAREN (TALKING ON THE PHONE)
Hotel Grand. Epic twats. They can blow me.
She wants to limit my freedom of speech.
 
SUZANNA
Excuse me, Madam, I think this appears to be a misunderstanding.
This is Golden Hotel.
Grand Hotel is situated on the opposite side of this street.
 
 KAREN (TALKING ON THE PHONE)
Wrong hotel, it seems. Whatever. Anyway, I’ll see you later. 
 
Karen leaves Golden Hotel, slamming the door on her way out.
 
FADE IN: A FLOWER SHOP
 
Suzanna walks in. The seller (MATT) greets her.
 
SUZANNA
We need a new plant.
 
MATT
This is the fourteenth plant you have bought this month.

 
SUZANNA
Some clients are monsters.
