Maybe Norman Bates had the right idea...

The following happened the other night at the hotel...about 1230am US eastern time.

BUZZZZZ!!! BUZZZZZ!! BUZZZZ!!! (night window buzzer repeatedly going off like a NORAD missile alert)

Me: Can I help you?

Man (yuppie looking type, with a slightly pissed off look because the lobby's locked and he can't get in) : I need a room.

Me: What type of room, sir?

Man: I don't care.

Me: Well, sir, we have several different type of rooms. Some with two beds...most with king size single beds. What kind do you need?

Man: I don't care. I need a room.

Me(starting to do the slow burn): Sir, how many are in your party?

Man: Two people.

Me: So, what do you need...a room with two beds or a king single?

Man: I don't care.

Me(now approaching the Sonny Corleone level of slow burn): Sir, the doubles are $XX; the singles are $XX, plus tax. What kind of room do you want?

Man: I don't care.

I finally checked him into a room and sent him on his way. Found out the next day, he complained to the manager that I didn't get to the window fast enough to suit him...sorry sonovabitch.

Maybe good ol' Norman Bates at the Bates Motel DID have the right idea...

That would have been hilarious to mess with him and scare the shit out of him.

If seeing someone like me standing at the night window didn't scare him, then nothing will

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

Either that...or some people are so caught up in themselves, they don't care.

What a mean jerk! I'm with others and hope you gave him the most expensive room. Also hope the manager knows about the ratio of jerk customers to good customers and did not take the complaint seriously. Sheesh - people like that just love to spread their gloom.

My boss is a fair guy...he knows how I operate at night, so I'm not worried.

Besides, I keep the jacuzzi suite open if I can...never know which one of you ladies might show up one night I'm working

*shaking head* ......Well he didn't have anything else to complain about.
Sounds like he found fault with the only thing he could.

Working at this job has made me appreciate those who work in the service area...I can never get cross with those who do their best.

Now...someone who greets me with a bad attitude? Hey, I can give as good as I get.

True, my lady, and most of them seem to check in here when I'm at work.
