They know all your secrets.
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of working in the service industry, you know how tiring, annoying, and frustrating it can be. Most guests are a pleasure who mind their Ps and Qs, but every once in awhile you get that awful human being that thinks you are their personal slave. The one saving grace is that you’ve got plenty of stories to share with your coworkers and friends of outrageous and unforgettable problem people.
There’s one employee that always has to be on point with kindness, smiles, and courtesy: the hotel employee. Hotel workers want to make your stay unforgettable, fun, and luxurious. They try to cater to your every whim, no matter how ridiculous or even gross. But it seems like decency just goes out the window with some hotel guests. These Redditors and contributors to “How May We Hate You?” share their unbelievable stories of not so on-the-level guests.
Just because these employees remain calm, cool, and collected doesn’t mean they aren’t judging you.
Everyone Likes Pie
“We had a guest we ended up calling ‘Pie Guy’ – he would come into the hotel without a reservation, pay in cash + the $100 cash deposit and the next day we would find his bathroom and bathtub full of the remains of several expensive pies. He never came to the desk for his deposit, as he knew he wouldn’t be getting it back. We added his name to our ‘do not rent’ list but he kept coming back and using different names. One time we found a torn up list in his room with the words ‘pie’ and ‘pants’ scribbled over and over again.”
Lots of Girlfriends
“I used to work at the front desk, and a guy asked if he could use another room to store eleven life-size sex dolls.”
