    Talentless Pool

    | Wisconsin, USA | Family & Kids

    (A customer approaches the front desk.)

    Customer: “Can I get a large gauze and band aid? And maybe some ointment as well?”

    Me: “What happened?”

    Customer: “My son swam into the pool wall, and he cut his head open.”

    Me: “Is he okay?”

    Customer: “Yeah, just bleeding. He’s so used to swimming in the ocean with no walls. Poor thing.”

    Me: “How old is your son?”

    Customer: “19.”

    Walking Tall, Risking Small

    | Dayton, OH, USA | Crazy Requests

    Guest: “How do I get to the mall from here?”

    Me: “Oh, it’s really easy, sir. You just make a right out of our lot, and you come to a lighted intersection. Go straight through the light and you will be in the mall parking lot.”

    Guest: “Alright, then.”

    (The guest goes to walk there, and then comes back.)

    Guest: “Are there no sidewalks here?”

    Me: “Well, no, not really, but there’s a light to protect you. Our roads have really wide shoulders, so there’s plenty of room to walk.”

    Guest: “Oh. So you really have to take you life into your hands to walk anywhere here, huh?”

    Unable To Order, Drunken Disorder

    | Alberta, Canada | Hotels & Lodging

    Me: “Hi, what can I do for you this evening?”

    Customer: *visibly intoxicated* “I need a room.”

    (After arguing with her for a good ten minutes about the cost per night, the customer settles on a standard room. A few hours later, she calls.)

    Me: “Front desk.”

    Customer: “My phone isn’t working.”

    Me: “Are you sure?”

    Customer: “Girl I am sure! My phone is not working.”

    Me: “Is it not working when you are trying to dial out? Make sure you’re pressing ’9′ before you dial the number you’re trying to reach.”

    Customer: “No, I know that! I read that. It’s not working. No dial tone, nothing.”

    Me: “Ma’am, aren’t you calling me from the room phone?”

    *Silence for a moment.*

    Customer: “While I’ve got you on here, can you order me ribs?”

    Me: “From the restaurant next door?”

    Customer: “Yeah.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, I’m not required to do that. The number for the restaurant is in your guest directory found in the drawer of the desk in your room.”

    Customer: “But my phone isn’t working!”

    Loonie Toonies

    | Niagara Falls, ON, Canada | Canada, Hotels & Lodging

    Me: “Good evening, sir. How can I help you?”

    Guest: “I need change for $5.00 so I can leave the maid a tip.”

    (The guest hands me a Canadian $5.00 bill and I open my register and take out a ‘toonie’ and three ‘loonies’ and hand it to the guest.)

    Guest: *blank look* “What is this?”

    Me: “That is change for $5.00.”

    Guest: “Is this real?”

    Me: “Yes, sir.”

    Guest: “Are you kidding me?”

    Me: “No, sir. I assure you that is Canadian change for five dollars.”

    Guest: “Is the maid going to understand what this stuff is?”

    Smoking Rate Gets Smokers Irate

    | Tennessee, USA | Hotels & Lodging

    Customer: “I have a smoking fee on my bill but I didn’t smoke in the room!”

    Me: “Actually, ma’am, the security officer last night saw you with a lit cigarette in your hand when he went to your room last night.”

    Customer: “Well, it wasn’t me! I didn’t smoke last night!”

    Me: “I’m really sorry, but if anyone smoked in the room last night we have to charge you for it since it was your room.”

    Customer: “But even if it wasn’t me?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. Security said that someone was smoking in the room.”

    Customer: “But I put it out right away! I didn’t smoke any more after that!”

    Me: “So you did actually smoke in the room then?”

    Customer: “Can I just pay half the fee since I only smoked half the cigarette?”
