You’re In His Sights

| Bodø, Norway | Extra Stupid, Hotels & Lodging

(I work as a room attendant. It’s a busy day, with a lot of people moving about in the corridors. An elderly man approaches me briskly, and doesn’t stop until he has properly breached my comfort zone. I recognise him as a guest, though, one who is partially blind, so I put on a big and polite smile.)

Guest: “Hey, you, can you help me find room number 444? Is it down this way?” *points down the corridor I’m currently in*

Me: “Ah, no, sir. It’s in the other direction, but it’s past the conference halls. Do you want me to walk you there?”

Guest: *briskly* “Yes.”

Me: *smiles, nods and begins walking down in the right direction* “It’s down here, you see.”

Guest: *suddenly angry* “NO I CAN’T SEE OR I WOULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR HELP!”
