Guest: “Can you take my dollar bills and give me a fiver?”

Me: “Sure.”

(He then gives me 5 dollars, but one of the bills is ripped cleanly in half.)

Me: “Sir, I can’t accept this dollar.”

Guest: “It’s still good!”

Me: “Sir I can’t, do you have another? It’s ripped in two.”

(The guest insists on me taking his ripped dollar. Not wanting to make a big fuss over a dollar, I shrug and throw it in the trash. The guest sees this and scowls at me. Later, I tell a coworker what happened.)

Me: “And can you believe that he tried to give me a ripped up dollar bill? We don’t accept those!”

Coworker: “Well, we could just go to the bank and get a new one.”

Me: “For real? I didn’t know that…still…why did he give ME it? We are not a bank! We’re a hotel business!”

Coworker: *shrugs* “Well we do change money for the guest, so maybe they figured we’d do this bank-like thing too?”

(It’s only a matter of time that someone applies for a loan from us, I think…oh yeah, the kicker was that the guest complained later about me being racist for throwing his money away.)
