Real Life Innkeeping Reality vs. Myth or TV

To demonstrate that while some of what is displayed on "Tori and Dean: Inn Love" is true:

Yes, B and B's make breakfast, usually it is very organized.

Yes, sometimes guests bring children that they have NOT told you about, you deal with it.

Yes, sometimes you may accidently double book guests, or cancel some one in error and then it is your responsibility to find them a place to stay--but NOT generally your own quarters, with your stuff still in place--how about springing for another inn or even, gasp, a hotel as it was your mistake.

Yes, sometime innkeepers are in fact also pregnant, and they still manage.

And, yes, sometimes innkeepers have emergencies and have to leave, but they always have someone take over first, and then leave.

Odds of all this occurring on the same night--fairly unheard of...
