We're kicking off a summer series this morning, and it's one you can participate in. We've collected a few stories from people who've told us about their summer vacations that have gone horribly wrong, and we'd like to hear from you too. Our first victim is Lew Schnieder, a writer and producer of the TV show Men of A Certain Age. He shares a story about the danger of being a guest in someone's home on a vacation, and then having to reciprocate.

We've set up a special telephone hotline to record your nightmare summer vacation story. If it's funny, sad or just plain tragic, we may share it with our listeners. The number is 626-583-5281.
