A Customer Without Power Will Make Even Ghosts Cower After The Midnight Hour

, | Right | October 9, 2009

(A few weeks before Christmas at the hotel where I work, a huge snowstorm knocks out the power. I am working the night shift when somebody walks into the pitch-black lobby at about two in the morning.)

Customer: “What the h*** is this?! Where are the lights?”

(I’m hidden in the darkness, although I can see him clearly from the emergency light in the entrance.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “Who said that? Oh, God, this place is haunted, isn’t it?”

Me: “Sir, no. I’m behind the counter. We just don’t have emergency lighting back here.”

Customer: “I don’t believe you!”

Me: “Yeah… what can I do for you, anyway?”

Customer: “I want to check in!”

Me: “Well, I’m sorry, but nobody can check in or out until the power’s back on.”

Customer: “Why the h*** not?!”

Me: “Well, because the computers can’t run without electricity. This includes the key card initializer. Even if I could check you in by hand, I can’t make you a key to get into the room.”

Customer: “Well, fix it!”

Me: “Fix what?”

Customer: “Fix the power! God!”

Me: “Sir, half the city is suffering from a power outage right now. I can’t just fix that.”

Customer: “Sure you can! You’re a ghost! Ghosts turn lights on and off all the time!”

Me: “Sir, I think it’s in your best interest to find a hotel on the other side of town.”

Customer: “Fine! I’ll call your manager, too, and tell him he shouldn’t be hiring ghosts! You are so unhelpful!” *storms out*
