Nice Room

I looked around appreciatively. "This is a very nice room."  

He looked at me, face devoid of emotion, waiting.

I continued, "Yes, very smart, bigger than our little rooms back home.  This is why I like to travel: to see the world."

He continued to wait, his hand extended.

I looked at him, at his hand, and realising my faux pas, dug into my pocket for some change and offered it to him.

He continued to stare at me, ignoring my hand, and eventually spoke. "What floor, sir?"
