I didn't stay in a holiday inn express last night, but figure you can get the plate removed. I know it was an option for me.

Broke mine, had the hardware pulled.

If it is irritating you as you describe and interfering with your profession, it sounds like it is a great idea to remove it. Basically, you will be left with n holes in your clavicle from the screws; those holes will fill in with time.
