    To the hotel clerk, we're glad you are OK. I worked as a night auditor in a hotel for a year, and I had a few experiences that were scary. That's why I got a concealed carry permit, some advanced training in self-defense and a can of "bear mace" as well. I suggest you do the same. The only person who can protect you is YOU... Stay safe, and as an ex night shift hotel clerk myself, my prayers are with you.
