I finally know the worst word in the English language. It is not a dirty word and I can write it on my blog because it is not offensive. What is the word?


I didn’t get to sleep until 3 a.m. Eastern last night. I was sleeping in this morning and it was way too early for my trip to the ballpark, and I heard the housekeeper at my hotel door. “Housekeeping,” she shouted.

I almost had a coronary. I never got back to sleep.

She accompanied housekeeping my scraping something metallic on my door. I had my do not disturb sign. This did not deter her. I have been awakened by the awful word housekeeping over 3 million times in my life. I hope it never happens to you.
