At Least They Weren’t Hostile!

, , , | Friendly | December 29, 2020

I booked a bed in a dormitory in a hostel for five days. In the dormitory, there are eight beds. However, when I arrive, I am the only one in that room the first day. You can rent bed linen and stuff, but I decided to save a little money and brought my own.

The next day, I go to the convention centre, leaving the room with seven beds with no bed linen, and the bed I had chosen with my bedlinen.

Late that evening, I return to the room, where some other guests have now arrived. However, as I come to my bed, I am very surprised to see someone actually asleep in my bed.

As I am rather tired, and I’m a very peaceful person, I call the emergency number and explain that somebody seems to have occupied my bed.

No problem; I get to borrow their linen free of charge and get to pick another bed. 

It turned out that the next morning I was up early, and he was still sound asleep, so I went down to the reception and explained the situation as I had to leave for the convention again rather early.

When I returned the next evening, my bed linen was nicely piled up on my bed, together with a candy bar and a note.

Note: “Sorry about the mixup!”

But I wonder how tired you are when you decide to take the only bed that has linen in an eight-bed dormitory. Wasn’t it obvious that the bed is already taken?
