(Our hotel has a pool table that guests can play pool until 10pm. It’s 11pm.)

Old Man: “Excuse me, can I play pool?”

Me: “No, sorry, not after 10pm.”

Old Man: “WHERE DOES IT SAY THAT?!”

Me: “It doesn’t say it anywhere, but that’s our policy.”

Old Man: “ANY WHY FOR THIS ‘POLICY’?”

(I explain that there are people nearby in their room trying to sleep, and it might disturb them. The old man gets even angrier.)

Old Man: “WELL, THERE OUGHTA BE A SIGN SAYING THIS POLICY! SINCE THERE’S NONE, YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO PLAY POOL!”

Me: “No, I don’t have to break the rules. As for the sign, I don’t know why there’s not, the manager–”

Old Man: “I DON’T WANNA CAUSE TROUBLE, BUT I WILL IF YOU DON’T SHOW ME THIS POLICY WRITTEN SOMEWHERE! HOW ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSED TO KNOW?”

(We go around in circles like this for hours, and then finally he pouts off. He went into the lobby, sat down on the couch, and glared at me for hours more until finally he goes into his room! What a schmuck! I pity his family for having to deal with someone like him.)
