Guest: My hair drier doesn’t work.

Me: Unfortunately we don’t have any hair driers in this hotel, but there is a Tesco down the road where you will be able to get a replacement with little cost.

Guest: No. You have to come here now and fix my hair drier.

Me: Is it dead? Or blowing cold, or what?

Guest: I have tried plugging it in and it just won’t! You don’t seem to get it! I have a very important event to attend and I need to do my hair, so get here and fix it now!!

Me: I’ll send someone to have a look…

(I send the porter to have a look. Seconds later he comes back laughing)

Me: What was wrong?

Porter (laughing): She was trying to plug her European hair drier into our British sockets. Do you have an adapter back there?

I gave him the adapter and a little while later she walked by me (with fabulous hair) and muttered about how useless I am to her partner.
