Let’s Hope It Was At Least The Grand-Daddy Size
Mr. Schaitberger’s distinct preference for Grey Goose Vodka is legendary.
Less well known is how much of your money he would pay to have a bottle of it delivered to his hotel suite.
The vast majority of folks staying in a hotel who want a drink will go to the bar and buy one.
The thrifty sort might bring a bottle or some miniatures in their luggage.
If it was a very special occasion you might consider ordering a cocktail from room service.
What The High-Rollers Do
First, it’s good to know that you can buy a 1.75 liter bottle of Grey Goose vodka at Costco for $60.
Not cheap, but they do say it’s good stuff.
Unfortunately, it’s not that cheap when you have your bottle wheeled up to the suite on a room service cart.
How not cheap?
$174 for a single bottle.
Actually, the booze is “only” $130 but it costs another $44 for the trip up to the suite on the elevator.
Of course, you could just go to the neighborhood liquor store and buy a 750mm bottle of Grey Goose off the shelf for $30, the exact cost of the room service delivery fee.
This is the kind of information the IAFF leadership is trying to hide by hiring a firm to spy on IAFF employees.
Not trade secrets or affiliate contracts or labor strategy, just the shameful details of how they spend our money.
It simultaneously shows how divorced they are from reality and how far they will go to protect their “high-life” purchased with member dues.
