So, yeah, last month we went back to Cozumel. It was rough:
We stayed at an all-inclusive which meant that we could have drinks or food any time we wanted. I say this not to be all "Look at me, I'm fancier than Ann Romney's Cadillacs" but because it's germane to what I'm going to tell you.
While we were at this all-inclusive hotel, there were Texans in the next room. They brought their own beer to an all-inclusive. Rather than drink either of the beer options offered (two different bottled Dos Equis) or anything else from the full service bars (high end liquor, mixed drinks, wine), they toted around their cooler of Bud Lights. That's right. These folks, who paid in advance for the joy of having whatever they wanted delivered to them on the beach, passed up Dos Equis in favor of their own Bud Light in cans. I've heard of brand loyal but WTF?
Questions du jour: What have you passed up that was free in favor of something that wasn't? Do you ever cringe at American behavior when you are traveling?
