Service With Room To Improve

| USA | Right | September 22, 2015

(I work at a hotel in an affluent city. Property around here goes for millions of dollars.)

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, I want a room.”

Me: “Okay, the rate is [rate].”

Customer: *eyes bug out* “What?! How do you justify that?!”

Me: “Um… I don’t know. The sales department sets the prices, not me.”

Customer: “They must be on crack! It’s four walls! And a bed!”

Me: “Right… So, do you want to rent the room?”

Customer: *starts cursing and swearing* “No, I don’t want the room! I just want to know how you can charge that price!”

Me: “Well, the room comes with free internet, and free breakfast… and free gym.”

Customer: *sneeringly* “F*** the breakfast! Take that room and shove it up your a**! And tell that to the ‘sales’ department, too!” *struts off*

Coworker: “Man, what an idiot. He needs some anger management classes.”

Me: *to Coworker* “He’s going to check the hotel next door and across from us, and be back in fifteen minutes.”

Coworker: “No way!”

(I was right!)

No Drink Americano

| BC, Canada | Right | September 21, 2015

(I work at a popular ski resort in Canada. We get a lot of American tourists, many very rude and demanding. I am the barista on duty. I do not take customer’s orders, but the layout of the store means that a lot of customers talk to me while I make their drinks. This particular customer has ordered an Americano, which is made with espresso shots and hot water.)

Customer: “What are you doing?”

Me: “I’m making an Americano.”

Customer: “Is that for me?”

Me: “I’m not sure; I didn’t take your order. Is your name John?”

Customer: “Yes, but I ordered coffee, not whatever this is.”

Me: “The order slip says you ordered an Americano. That’s what this drink is, sir.”

Customer: “You Canadians have a really stupid way of making coffee. I have been all over the world and I have never seen coffee made like this before.”

Me: “Actually, sir, Americanos are not Canadian. They were invented by Italians, for Americans who didn’t like traditional Italian espresso and had to have it diluted with water.”

Customer: “Hmph!” *takes his drink and walks away*
