The Worst Kind Of Wake-Up Call

I work in a hotel. One day, I help a coworker out by agreeing to work a morning shift. That should be easy.

Eight am rolls around and I get a noise complaint. Wonderful. I look up the room and it is a mom with a bunch of kids. Even more wonderful. I don’t want to deal with this or yell at a mom at eight in the morning.

Then, I check the profile closer. They were put in a handicap room since it was bigger. I go upstairs and knock on the door. Mom answers.

Me: *In a very concerned voice* “Is everyone okay in there?”

Mom: *Confused* “Everyone is fine.”

Me: “I’m relieved to hear that! The front desk got noise complaints about the room, but since it is a handicap room, I thought the thudding noises described meant that someone had fallen over. Thank you for clearing things up!”

I turned away, knowing that Mom immediately got what was up, and after she closed the door, I heard her say, “You kids have to be quiet!”

There were no more complaints about that room.
