Wrinkled Shirt Hero

I am traveling this week and speaking at a conference. When I got to my hotel room, I noticed there was no iron or ironing board in the room.

Now I always need an iron and ironing board when traveling. I haven't mastered the art of packing my clothes so that they don't need to be ironed when you take them out of the suitcase. Or maybe I should start buying some "no iron" clothes to take on trips.

Either way, it is unusual for a hotel to not have an iron and ironing room provided for you in the room.

I pulled my wrinkled shirt out of the suitcase and almost had a panic attack at the thought of walking in to teach the next day with a badly wrinkled shirt.

My only hope was that the front desk might keep an iron and ironing board for situations like mine. So I went to the front desk and told them there was no iron or ironing board in the room. The lady at the desk informed me that they didn't provide either of those for guests.

"Is there something you can do, I asked? It's looking like I will be trying to teach tomorrow with a wrinkled, sloppy shirt and that is not a good thing."
