Stairway To The Past!

, , , | Right | August 22, 2019

(I am the front desk manager at an old hotel that has been around since at least twenty years before I was born. I’m in my early thirties. I’m training a new employee who is only twenty and it is his first shift. A customer comes in to check in. I walk my new hire through the process and all is fine until we give him his key.)

New Hire: “You are in room 207 on the second floor. The stairs to go up are just on your left.”

Customer: “Well, where is the elevator?”

Me: “Unfortunately, sir, we don’t have one. We only have the stairs.”

(He stares at us for a moment, then yells:)

Customer: “No elevator? You’re crazy. You’re all crazy!”

(He then stomps away. I turn to my new hire.)

Me: “Right, because we went back in time 20 to 30 years before our birth and decided not to put in an elevator. Welcome to customer service, [New Hire]!”
