‘They refused to admit their mistake’: Hotel guests' reservation gets canceled due to failed credit card transaction, they demand front desk clerk give them a discounted room

Are you the type of people who book a hotel room at whatever website has the lowest rate, or do you always book it from the hotel's official website? Even though it is appealing to pay less, there could be a lot of issues with booking through a third-party website. For example, if the booking somehow falls through, the actual hotel can't do much to help, and they would most likely tell you to contact the 3rd-party's customer service, which can be a lot of pain. Another example is what happened…

Customer blames car wash for car damage, demands compensation but refuses to let employee check the security cameras: ‘I know a liar when I see one’

No one loves to admit they are at fault when they make a mistake. It's an uncomfortable feeling, and if the mistake costs money, that is even worse. But, as we are all adults, sometimes you have to own up to your mistakes and pay for what you caused. Not this customer though, he absolutely refused to admit to the damage he caused. In this Reddit story, two customers approached a car wash employee and accused the car wash of causing their cars to crash into each other. The employee, who had to d…

The next story comes from a frustrated worker who is eager to get home. The Original Poster (OP) is a convenience shop employee who closes shop at precisely ten o'clock every night. But on this…

20+ bizarre food delivery stories: 'A grown man [who] insisted that I refer to him as Snow White'

20+ bizarre food delivery stories: 'A grown man [who] insisted that I refer to him as Snow White'

Who hasn't had an embarrassing late night delivery story? We all get food cravings, especially after a long day or a night out. Sometimes, it's the only time you allow yourself to eat certain things. For me, that would be cookies and McDonalds. It happens more frequently than I'd like to admit, and when it does happen, I like to destroy all the evidence of the delivery once I'm finished eating and pretend like nothing ever happened. I mean, do calories even count after 11 p.m.? Though my intent…

‘You’re a grown woman, figure it out': Demanding guest blames hotel clerk for failing to book her room after she disappeared for days

If you want things to get done, 9 out of 10 times, you are going to have to do them yourself. Nobody else will do them for you. If you want to go on vacation, you have to be the one who books the flights, hotels, and attractions. If you are just waiting around for somebody else to do all the hard work for you then–guess what? you are probably not going to go on vacation. I don't know what this customer thought in this Reddit story, but she is the perfect example of these kinds of people who do…

'Don't clock in, don't get paid': Company stops paying employees who fail to clock in on time, leading to a legal dispute

Different workplaces have different ways of ensuring their employees are doing their jobs properly. One of the main aspects of the job that managers usually take note of is when their employees arrive, and when they leave, so there are a few ways a manager can track his employees' working hours. They can use an app that employees would clock in and out from, they can use a physical card and clock at the office, and they can just use the good ol' trusting system in which they trust their employe…

‘I win’: Hotel employee outsmarts demanding guest, leading to an unplanned checkout and pricey journey home

Serving customers is never an easy job. However, meeting the demands of tourists can be 10 times more challenging. Sometimes, in the rush of things, we forget that the ordinary folks who serve us—whether at the restaurant, hotel, or valet—don't work for us; instead, they are just regular people who are trying to make it through their shift with as little trouble as possible. The story that follows is an account of a frustrated hotel employee. The Original Poster (OP) works for a four-star hotel…

‘He watched as I counted every single bill’: Retail employee gets back at demanding customer for refusing to pay with credit card

It might be safe to say that we are slowly approaching a time when people no longer use cash. Not to say that cash will ever disappear, that is not going to happen, but with the ability to pay with debit cards, credit cards, smartphones, and even smart watches, people simply don't carry cash with them anymore. The slow disappearance of cash from our lives shouldn't and probably wouldn't affect our everyday life that much, but it can cause some inconveniences to some people, or more specifically…

‘Can't help you, I’m on a break': Servers takes a break to eat while ignoring customers entitled requests to 'stay on shift', leading to a dispute

More often than not, customers tend to completely forget that the servers who are standing in front of them are human beings too. While it is understandable to want to get a proper service for something that you are paying for, treating servers how you would want to be treated yourself is the least you can do. So for example, if you see that a server is taking their much-deserved break, maybe just leave them be. Which is exactly what the customers in this Reddit story should have done, at least…

‘Give me a break…’: Hotel employees driven to breaking point by demanding guest who treats them like her personal nannies

It may be said that working as a customer support agent is really challenging. If you stop to think about it, your bosses' opinion of you, or at least their general impression of you, is entirely dependent on your capacity to manage challenging clients in a cool, collected manner. In other words, performance evaluation only takes into account a customer service representative's ability to maintain composure, regardless of his or her level of talent. The story that follows proceeds to be told fr…

‘You have no clue what you're doing': Customer demands to speak to manager after yelling at employee, only to discover the employee is the manager

Every customer should remind themselves when they go into any type of store, that the employees are there for a reason. They have had training, they probably have been working there for a while, and you are not the first customer walking in. The bottom line is, they know what they're doing. So if you, a customer, come in and ask for a product and an employee tells you that they don't have it, chances are, they don't have it. Calling the employee names or asking to see the manager, will not chan…
