With all of the guests
hotel employees see and meet day after day, there are bound to be some
stories.
Workers from all walks of the hospitality industry recently took to
Reddit to share some of their strangest guest encounters—most NSFW, but we
pulled a few gems proving there's no knowing exactly what's going on behind
closed doors (until someone calls room service).
Ahead: seen stories straight
from the sources mouth (a la Ask Reddit).
"A CEO of a large TV Corp who would ask to have a tray of cookies sent to
the room every night.
She would chew every one of them only to put them back
on the tray." – redsundance "We had a guest we ended up calling 'Pie
Guy'—he would come into the hotel without a reservation, pay in cash + the
$100 cash deposit and the next day we would find his bathroom and bathtub full
of the remains of several expensive pies.
He never came to the desk for his
deposit, as he knew he wouldn't be getting it back.
We added his name to our
'do not rent' list but he kept coming back and using different names.
One time
we found a torn up list in his room with the words 'pie' and 'pants' scribbled
over and over again." – ladywug "This one lady came into the lobby
around 11pm, asked for the workout room so I opened it back up for her
figuring she was one of those 24hr workout people.
I went back in around 3am
to close it up again, and she has set up a bed for herself on the
treadmill.
Ended up giving her our last room after she had a fight with her
husband and was refusing to sleep with him." –greenmouse19 "I used to
work at the front desk, and a guy asked if he could use another room to store
eleven life size sex dolls." – NuketheNukes "I had a weird guest who
was part of a land survey crew that would come in every week.
One time she
called the front desk and said, 'There are bubbles in my toilet.
Why are there
bubbles in my toilet?' I told her they might have flushed the water pipes
(BSing).
She then says, 'Hold on, I'm going to bring some down.' I said,
'Ma'am, that's really not necessary,' but she was already off the line.
About
5 minutes later she comes down the elevator with a wineglass full of clear
water.
' Well, it was bubbly a minute ago!' I had to walk in the back and beat
my head against the wall for a bit." – dsetech "We had to kick some
burger convention attendees out when they dumped mayo and relish into the hot
tub." –powereddeath "We once had a couple check in at reception and
they were given a park and display permit for their car.
The hotel only had
three car parking spaces, which are usually reserved during booking.
Others
have to park on the streets around the hotel, displaying the permits which are
provided at cost by the local council. About 40 minutes later the husband
comes to reception shouting and complaining that he's received a parking
ticket and the permit he was given was obviously no good.
We couldn't
understand why, there was no way the permit wasn't valid.
We asked, did he
display it in the window as we had told him to do? He said, 'Of course.' He
put it in the window as soon as got upstairs to the room.
That's when we
realized he'd put it in the bedroom window and not the car window."
