His Room Has Been (Tali)Banned

| Wilmington, NC, USA | Bigotry, Hotels & Lodging, Top

(I am a security guard at an upscale downtown hotel. I am a Caucasian male and the other employee at the desk is our concierge, a third generation American whose parents immigrated from Iraq. A drunk guest comes in and glares at her. He is also a Caucasian.)

Guest: “Hey, security!”

Me: “Yes, sir?”

Guest: “There’s a d*** Muslim at the front desk. You’d better keep an eye on her or she’ll blow us all to h***!”

Me: “Sir, that is our concierge. She’s not going to blow up her place of work. Now, I think it’s time you go to your room.”

(The guest leaves only to return two more times ranting about our concierge. On the third time I inform him to go up or he’ll be kicked out. He does not take it well.)

Guest: “You’re a d*** liberal aren’t you? H***, you’d probably help her plant the d*** bombs!”

Me: *to the concierge* “Please call the police. We have a trespasser.”

(The guest ends up getting into a fight with the police, is arrested, and barred from coming back. The concierge and I begin dating a few weeks later and now, three years later, are celebrating our first anniversary!)

A Decent Slice Of Nice

| Perth, WA, Australia | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

(It’s about 9:50 pm, 10 minutes until we close and a group a customers have just walked in. As I’m serving one of them we start chatting.)

Customer #1: “Sorry for coming in so late. You guys are about to close, right?”

Me: “In a few minutes, yeah. But it’s fine. We don’t mind.”

Customer #2: “Have you guys had dinner?”

Me: “Not yet, our shift started at 5 and we don’t get a break.”

(The two customers look at each other, and then one thrusts a takeaway pizza box at me.)

Customer #1: “Here have this.”

Me: “Oh no, it’s fine. We really can’t.”

Customer #1: “No, take it. We won’t be able to eat it all anyway. You guys should get dinner.”

(They all pay and go, leaving my coworker and me with a free dinner! Customers like these ones make my job bearable!)
