did the hotel inspector get caught?

Don't get caught appears to be the motto of hotel inspectors, too, according to a first-person account in today's New York Times by AAA inspector Michael Petrone. Noting that inspectors prize their anonymity above all else, he describes getting suspicious when hotel employees offer extra perks or good service, because "sometimes, they catch us." In this account, however, he describes one hotel's staff so "on alert" that a waitress confided to him they knew the AAA inspector was there. The end of the story will have you chuckling -- and thinking twice about who should have kept things anonymous.
