At lunch today I was discussing with a colleague travel mistakes, mishaps and/or embarrassments while on the road. One that I can vividly remember is staying at a hotel in Venezuela and confusing the owner for the restaurant waiter. Later that evening, when the owner clarified he was the “owner not the waiter” I laughed thinking it was a joke. When I saw it was not a joke I felt so embarrassed and apologized for my mistake.
