London 〜ブチ切れ編I can't take it anymore!! Part1〜

おまたせ?しましたの、ブチ切れ編。。。
旅にトラブルはつきものですが、、、そしてロンドンは大好きだけど、今回は2回ほどブチ切れました。
Of course I love London and I know there're always some trouble when you are travelling, but there were two things (incidents) that I really got mad at.

1) I don't call it "flushing" when I have to pump it three times!
パディントン駅から近いホテル。値段はブリュッセルの5つ星ホテルとさほど変わらないのに、B&B。まぁそれでも十分で、バスタブもついてるし。。。と思ったら甘かった。
トイレが流れない。。。。
The hotel we stayed in London costed almost the same amount as the five-star hotel in Brussels, but it was B&B style. Of course it was OK as we just came back to take a bath and sleep...besides there's bustab in the bathroom... but it wasn't ok. The toilet didn't flush.

いやいやいやいや、しかも3人1部屋なんだけど。流れないというか、一度は流れる。けどその後すぐ流そうとすると、水がちょろっと出ておしまい。もちろん、即フロントに抗議。私たちが夕飯に出ている間に調べるから、と言われて疑いながら外出。帰ってくる。もちろん調べちゃいねぇ。
It flushed at first but if I tried to flush it again immediately, a little water came out and it didn't work. Of course I went to claim it and the clerk said he'd go and check while we were out. But I knew he wouldn't.

トイレが流れないってありえないんですけどー!!部屋替えてよ!と抗議。でも満室。とりあえず、15分後に見に行くから、と。もちろん来やしない。 ブチッ。
It's really impossible to stay the room with a useless toilet and I asked them to change the room but there's no room that night. The clerk said he'd come in 15 min, of course he didn't.

フロントまで降りて行く。。。おじさんが状況に気づいて、「今すぐ行くから!マダム!」
来るまでフロント前で待ち伏せ。やっと来た。で、結論から言うと。
I went down to the reception and he soon realized that I was really really mad and he replied "I'll come soon ma'am". I couldn't trust him so I waited in front of the reception. And at last he came with me. Then he said,

「流れてるじゃないか」 "It flushes"

は? huh?

トイレがタンク式で、お水をポンプで押し出すように3回ほどレバーを引けと。もちろんそれをやっても流れない、そうしたら、水がたまるまで待てと(ちなみに3階==日本の4階)。十分な水がたまるまで、30分近く必要だった。とりあえず、私の怒りように気づいて、態度が変わった。結果的に翌日に部屋を替えてもらえたが、以下のやりとり。

According to him, we need to pull the lever three times to flush the toilet, but if I did, it didn't flush the second time. Then he said we had to wait for the water to fill in the tank (btw, it was the third floor) . We found that it took at least 30 minutes... Anyways, to have seen me so angry, the clerk changed his attitude and afterall we're able to change the room next day.

"If you want you can change the room"
「部屋を変えられますよ」
"Really? Then we'll move when we get back this afternoon"
「ほんとに?じゃあ午後に帰ってきたら移ります」
"No, you have to pack your stuff right now and I will carry them to a new room or there'll be no room"
「いや、今すぐ荷物をまとめて、そうしたら運びますから。じゃないと、(午後には)部屋がいっぱいになります
"???"

つまりなに?今日チェックインする人たちを、あの壊れトイレの部屋に通す気?
とりあえず、自分の身の安全(?)が先なので、詮索せずに部屋を移りました。。。
I guess they'd put another guests in the room with the broken toilet...
But we could hardly stay at the room so we changed.

それだけじゃないのよ。

コンセントの接触が悪くて、重しをしておかないと使えなかった。。。
朝ご飯はお皿がなかったり。。。今度は多少高くとも、☆の多いホテルにしよう、と心に誓った。

There's another problem about the power supply. The connection was bad and I needed to hang something a bit heavy. And there weren't enough plates at the breakfast either...
I think we should choose a 4 or 5 star hotel next time even though it's expensive.

ロンドンだから、余計に腹が立ったのかも。中国ならある程度仕方ない気がする。。。でも嫌だけどね。
