Well they're the largest and toughest monsters on this list. And they can be aggressive and unpredictable on top of that.

I once complained that I had to pay 117 euros for a hotel, even though the price I booked it at said 112.

The lady at the till then pointed at a sign that said if you paid by card they added 5€. I went 'fair enough', paid, said goodbye, and went on travelling.

If I think I'm being charged more than I should, I'll ask about it. If it's an error on my part, I have no issue admitting I'm wrong and paying up. I mean, the people at the desk are generally only doing their job. No sense in getting angry at them. Be polite and cooperative, and you'll get any shit sorted out much faster.

Well, alot of the time you are dealing with people paying after receiving the service. So, if they have an expensive hotel room and want to waive the fee of a $3.99 pay per view movie, why would any hotel argue? It's customer service.
#17 - anon (08/17/2016) [-]
exactly, they've already received the service and should be expected to pay for it

Because if I waived EVERY customers movie, that 3.99 begins to add up. Yeah I will waive once in a while, but there has to be some line. We have to make money.

Also, it's just common decency to pay for the services you use. Just because you spent a lot of money on one thing, doesn't mean you should get something else free. You use it. You pay for it.

It's the principle of it, you wave one fee, you wave another, and suddenly the place can't afford to operate any more. Hotels surprisingly don't make allot of money.

We're talking about a high end luxury hotel in the content. I'm sure they can handle it.

You must be the kind of person that takes towels or soaps or slippers and what not from hotels since it coast only 2€ at most per item. That is PER ITEM. Small chains pay millions of eu per year just for soap, towels and slippers even more so. And then you have to pay the bills and your workers. Hotel manegment is not some ballpark you know.

What the fuck man, have you ever worked outside mcdonalds? Or have you ever worked at all...?

Luxury hotels don't make a lot of money, it's the chains of 4 star hotels that makes money.
Almost all luxury hotels barely scrape by, the owner usually makes around 150-200k a year, which is very little considering the huge risk of bankruptcy. 4 stars usually net 200-250k a year.

Passive aggressive skills come in very handy, and if that fails, always remember, your boss is a phone call away, and its not your problem any more.

Amen.

That's my go to rule actually. Was talking about this the other night with some of the other front desk. I never say no more than twice. I simply shift the blame to the boss.

Another fun thing to do is to lowkey show people they are being an asshole.

"Why you can't upgrade me for free man. Why I gotta pay blah blah blah?"
"Come on man, I would totally do it. But I'm not trying to get in trouble with my boss. Unless you tryna give me a new job."

Working with people does have its benefits.

Remember this time I had a clusterfuck of a guy who had outstanding fees so we blocked his truck, and his barley english speaking boss was threatening me over the phone with my boss on the phone in my other ear. Shit was way fucky. But hey, private property means we can detain your vehicle, or tow it, with little reason, so fuck that guy. It was only 50$ too.

God the threats are so funny. And that's the funny part, It's always over the smallest amount people want to be petty over. And they try to get some other person to threaten you like you supposed to be scared. It's a business. We can do whatever we want.

It's always the same Indian woman for me. They book a cheap room online, usually run by house which mean we choose the room. Then they come and try t o get a free upgrade for either a balcony or a second bed. And they give the attitude or whatever. I let them leave, the reservation is non-refundable at that point so "Bye Bitch"

i know shes not good enough to hold the flag. i think that is absoultely ridiculous. im saying if she were the first female muslim something or other to compete for the USA, that in its own right is special is all. but its literally just about a hijab....so its 1000x stupider than how incredibly fucking stupid it was to begin with.

Oh, ok.


but just because shes not medal tier doesnt mean shes not olympic tier. i have no clue, but unless she got like deadlast by far compared to the other us olympic fencers, then she deserves to be there.

#18 - FuckYouFatBen (08/12/2016) [-]
No of course she is Olympic tier. But to hold the flag, I mean you want the best of the best to be the symbol of leadership. Michael Phelps is the best f the best. He beats our everyone else. In his sport and in dedication in others. He is the epitome of an athlete.

She's great, don't get me wrong. But he represents USA perfection.
