Dear Yuppie Scum in room 414...

Yesterday was a hellish day at work for all of us at the Hampton Inn in Portland.

17 rooms per person, nearly all of them trashed because a Canadian bus tour full of little old ladies left early that morning. I wound up skipping my lunch break to try to get my rooms done on time, which I never do considering I'm hypoglycemic. The new GM comes to my floor saying three rather high-maintinence middle aged women need the suite ASAP, and in an unusual gesture even helped me clean it! Much appreciated, especially since that room was so filthy it could've gagged a maggot.

The room is cleaned in about an hour, she goes and checks them in, and all seems fine.

About a half hour later I'm cleaning another room and these saggy-tittied harpies doused in Channel calogne start doing the "Housekeeping! You need towel? HAHAHAHAHAHA" bit, which wasn't funny the first 18,000 I've heard it this week and I get it so often it doesn't really bother me that much anymore (good ol' New Age mental-emotional balance training pays off, for now...)

"Oh you are so bad!"
"What? It's not like she can understand me."

Of all the times I felt like screaming at a guest I really wish I did, but I maintained my cool.

I told this story to the Front Desk manager and her jaw dropped to the floor with disgust.

I hope room 414 gets swarmed with locusts before they leave.

I mean seriously! I went without eating to bust my ass to make sure that room was ready when THEY wanted it and they're making fun of me?

What the FUCK?? If anyone did that to me you can be damn sure I would let them have it with both barrels; and furthermore, if I was a manager and a member of my staff reported an incident like that to me, I would be straight up there to tear a strip off the guests. I don't give a shit how much money you're paying: you're NOT paying to abuse people.

I've worked in housekeeping; I feel your pain. The sheer ingratitude of some people is mind-boggling - but I suppose if you had literally never cleaned a bathroom or a bedroom in your life, you wouldn't understand that it's fucking hard work doing it all day.
you should have just calmly looked at them and said "no, whyever would i be able to understand you?" and then walked away. theyre bitches, so screaming a them wouldnt work, but i guarentee their hearts would have both stopped for a second.
Yeah I would either turn around, smile with a confused look on your face (as if to not comprehend) and then say, "Now that wasn't very nice now was it?"


Go to a local pet store that sell crickets and release them under the door in the middle of the night.
I like the crickets idea!
