    | Traverse City, MI, USA | Top, Tourists/Travel

    Me: “Thank you for calling the [hotel]. How may I direct your call?”

    Customer: *in a British accent* “I need a room for tonight.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we are booked.”

    Customer: “Why?”

    Me: “It’s the 4th of July. We’re always booked on the 4th.”

    Customer: “I know the date! Why are you booked?”

    Me: “Um, it’s July 4th.”

    Customer: “Listen, just give me a room!”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, we are sold out. The entire town is sold out.”

    Customer: “The entire town? Why?”

    Customer: “Independence from what?”

    Inn-Experienced

    | Illinois, USA |

    Me: “Hello, [hotel name]. How may I help you?”

    Customer: “I need to cancel my reservation for tonight.”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, but we require 24 hour notice for all cancellations.”

    Customer: “Well it’s an emergency! My daughter got sick and we
    had to stay home!”

    (I glance down at the caller ID and see that this phone call is coming from a competing hotel across town.)

    Me: “Okay, sir. I’ll cancel it for you due to this emergency situation.”

    (Ten minutes pass, and I call the other hotel and ask to be connected to the guy’s room.)

    Customer: “Hello?”

    Me: “Hello sir, this is [name] from [hotel]. I just wanted to call you back with your cancellation number and to wish your daughter a speedy recovery.”

    Customer: *stammering* “How did you get this number? Are
    you following me?!”

    I Can Hear Clearly Now The Brain Is Gone

    | Chicago, IL, USA |

    (A man claiming to be our hotel guest’s boss calls our front desk several times, claiming that the guest won’t return his calls. I ring the hotel guest to let her know the situation.)

    Me: “Hello! I received a few phone calls from a Mr. *** asking you to call him back immediately.”

    Hotel guest: “Oh, Mr. ***? I don’t know a Mr. ****.”

    Me: “Oh, okay. I’m sorry to bother you. I will ask him to stop calling.”

    Hotel guest: “Well, what was his name again?”

    Me: “Mr. ***.”

    Hotel guest: “Was he tall?”

    Me: “Ma’am, he was on the phone.”

    Hotel guest: “You didn’t notice if he was tall or not? That doesn’t help me at all.”

    Me: “Very sorry, ma’am. I will try to get a better look at him next time he calls.”

    Hotel guest: “Thank you so much dear!” *hangs up*

    Third Tail’s A Charm

    | Sanibel, FL, USA |

    Customer: “Hi, I’m planning to stay here for a few days and just wanted to find out whether I can bring pets.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but our hotel has a strict no pet policy.”

    Customer: “So I can’t bring my dog?”

    Me: “No, I’m afraid not.”

    Customer: “But it’s tiny, doesn’t shed, and I guarantee I’ll always let it out in time.”

    Me: “No, I’m sorry.”

    Customer: “What about my cat?”

    Me: “No pets, sir.”

    Customer: “Alright, fine.” *stands around for several moments* “So my wife can bring her hamster, right?”
