Woman pimps “The Hook”
I do not usually re-blog or re-post much from people I know. But this one here I think is deserving of some attention.
And sorry how this might appear in your inboxes as it is just so confusing and ticking me off!!!
A hilarious and at times insightful blogger “The Hook” decided to write and publish a book. And this book is all about his observations of working in the trenches of the hotel industry.
He’s a bellman.
The Lone Bellman?
Anyways, he is a bellman in southern Ontario and the following is just one of his many accounts of his dealings with those who travel and visit his hotel.
And all I have to say is… his wit is wicked sharp!!!
Take a gander at just one of the ways he deals with people who visiting his hotel:
Some guests just don’t get it. Or rather, they simply don’t care.
I recently ran into a guy who felt he could score some points with his girlfriend if he ran down the bellman. Unfortunately, he failed to take two important details into account:
- You don’t have to resort to publicly humiliating service workers to impress a hooker. I’m sure the young lady in question would argue the point and refer to herself as an “escort”, but the end result was the same: she was a bought and paid-for companion.
- When you shake a beehive, you’re going to get stung. The same principle applies when dealing with The Hook.
We’ll call this guy “John”, for obvious reasons… He felt it would be cool to hand me two wrinkled American one-dollar bills after I unloaded his eight bags of shoes, designer clothes and photography equipment. John also thought it would make him look even cooler in the eyes of his “girlfriend” if her smirked from ear-to-ear as he did so.
JOHN: Here you go, Boss! Now you can get some dinner!
John made a horrible miscalculation.
THE HOOK: Not without a time machine, I can’t.
The “girlfriend” exploded into a fit of laughter, any further putdowns from John died in his throat as his smirk melted away and The Hook headed off to record the entire incident for posterity.
Just to be clear: “The Customer is Always Right”, does NOT always apply in the corridors of a hotel…
The book is available from Amazon (just take a clicky on the picture and it will take you there) and there is something special happening too!!! A give away!!!
