You Barely Occupied Their Thoughts

, , , , , , | Friendly | June 12, 2018

(My husband and I stop at a gas station on a trip to the beach. We both decide to use the restrooms. The doors on the individual stalls have unusually large — to me — gaps at the bottom, at least a foot high. While I am in one of the stalls, a woman comes up and tries to open the door.)

Me: “Occupied.”

Woman #1: *bangs on the door* “Somebody in there?”

Me: “Yes.”

Woman #1: *bangs again* “Helloooo?”


(The woman bends down and peers under the door, not just looking at my feet, but she actually makes eye contact with me!)

Woman #1: “Oh. There’s someone in this one.” *to someone else* “This one’s being used.”

(She walks away and goes to the stall beside me. Another woman comes up and looks under again, this time without knocking or anything.)

Woman #2: “Oh, yeah. This one, too.”

Woman #1: “No, that’s the one I just told you about!”

Woman #2: “Oh.”

(When I left the stall, the second woman was still waiting. As I passed her, she huffed and said, “Finally,” under her breath. I wasn’t in there for more than five minutes! When I told my husband about my encounter, he said I should have winked at the women since they were so intent on seeing me.)

Can't stand the way people act? You'll feel better after you check out our Antisocial collection in the NAR Store!

I work as a front desk agent, and it’s about 9:45pm and ive received multiple phone calls from the same rude gentleman in his room.

(First call)

Me: Front desk, how can I help you?

Gentleman: How do I turn the goddamn heat on in this room.
(note he’s been staying in this room a few nights now)

Me: There should be a wall panel on the wall that controls the heat & A/C.

Gentleman: Oh, ooh I see it. *makes weird grunting noise & hangs up the phone*

(calls back 2 minutes later)
Me: Front Desk.

Gentlemen: Nothing is lighting up. *makes frustrating noises*

Me: Ok sir, some of our rooms have controls on the AC unit itself by the window, there should be a lid to lift up to be able to control the air.

Gentleman: No. I tried that! no! No! None of this is working. *more frustrated grunts*

Me: Unfortunately we do not have anyone from maintenance here tonight, but I can leave a note for them to come up and take a look at it in the morning.

Gentleman: So what am I just gonna freeze tonight? I am pissed! I’m not paying for tonight! I want to speak to a manager in the morning! This is RIDICULOUS. IM SO PISSED.
(note that he’s a prepaid 3rd party resv. so it’s not like he’d get a refund anyway)

Me: Ok sir, that’s … *phone clicks*

(calls back 5 minutes later)

Me: Fron..

Gentleman: it’s working.

Thanks for the apology guy -.-
