First You Need To Have An Identity Worth Stealing

, , , | Right | December 10, 2020

I’m waiting in line to check into my hotel. I’ve been up since about 6:00 am yesterday, due to traveling a long distance, and I just want a bed to sleep in. The man ahead of me apparently has never checked into a hotel before.

Customer: “Why do I have to show my ID?! You’re just gonna steal my identity!”

Receptionist #1: “Sir, it’s to check you in, since we have many guests staying with us. It’s also in case of emergency, if the police contact us, or if there is damage done to the room.”

Customer: “You’ll call the cops on me?! Now you ain’t ever gonna see my ID!”

Another receptionist comes over to help me since this guy obviously isn’t going to cooperate.

Receptionist #2: “Can I see your ID?”

Me: *Loudly* “Of course, since any hotel I go to is going to ask me for ID for obvious reasons!”

I hand it over. After a minute, the receptionist hands it back, along with my room card.

Receptionist #2: *Also loudly* “Thank you, ma’am! Here is your ID back, with the information in a system that’s encrypted and does not allow me to steal information, and your room key!”

The man glared at us and stormed out.
