Several years ago while working at the front desk at the Soundings motel in Dennis port on Cape Cod we had a motor coach tour from England stay at the motel. That evening one of the English guests came to the front desk and asked me if we had a hair dryer that he could use. We don't provide hair dryers in the rooms but have some hair dryers, irons and ironing boards at the front desk.

"Hair dryer" I said, "Hmm you must mean a ray gun. In America we call these things ray guns" as I then handed him a "ray gun". (see picture)

This same group was very surprised that we didn't have tea in the lobby area.
