Caught Between A Drunk And A Hard Place

| USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Hotels & Lodging

(I am a young female working alone late at night. I’m busy with another customer when a heavily intoxicated man starts yelling sexist and obscene slurs at me, despite his friend trying to pull him away. The customer in front of me turns towards him.)

Customer: “Hey buddy! F*** off! Can’t you see that she’s not interested?!”

(The drunk makes a move towards him, but thankfully his friend finally manages, with lots of effort, to finally pull him away.)

Me: “Thank you. I didn’t know what I was going to do.”

Customer: “No problem, I always wanted to say that when working in customer service.”

(We finish with his issue and then…)

Customer: “So, can I get your number?”

Me: “Ah, sorry, we’re not allowed to give our numbers to customers.”

Customer: “Oh well, you missed out. Probably a [gay slur], ain’t ya…” *walks off*

Me: “…”

Don’t Assume You Nose Everything

(I have allergies and early spring usually leaves me snuffling and sneezing. Even most meds don’t work well unless they knock me out, which means I can’t take them before work.)

Customer: “So are you into coke? Because your nose is stuffy.”

Me: *staring in shock*

Customer: “Well, I didn’t mean to be rude!”

Me: “No, it’s allergies. Here are your room keys.”

(I guess stuffy nose equals illegal drugs.)

Customer: “I’d like to make a complaint. I’ve been here for two nights already, and not once has my room been cleaned! What kind of hotel is this?”

Me: “I’m sorry for the trouble, ma’am.” *checks with housekeeping* “Ma’am, the housekeeper says that there was a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on your doorknob.”

Customer: “What? I thought that meant don’t disturb me, not no housekeeping!”

(I calmly explain it, while she screams for a refund from for not making things clearer. She didn’t get it.)
