Really Lady?

What a doozie of a weekend!  Started out bad and got worse.  I guess I should be grateful that all the PITAs come on one weekend instead of spreading out to fill out my calendars...

Guests are all checked in, happy.  I've gone home.  12:30 AM the phone rings (we have Inn phone forwarded to an Inn cel 24/7) - apparently in my deep sleep, I did not hear it therefore did not wake up.  12:36AM phone rings again.  Sleepyhead answers it - it's the cops.  We're awake now!  Cop says that one of our guests is locked out and she called them.  WTF??  So we rush over there to let her in.  She's drunk (coulda guessed that one).  She's inside the house, but her room locked behind her and the key was inside.  She's accusing us of closing her room door thereby locking her out.  Mean, nasty old drunk woman.  She's holding a stack of our business cards.  We say, "Why didn't you just call us yourself?  Why did you call the cops?"  "I could not find your number!"  (2nd WTF!)  Ok, number is on the sign out front, on little signs over the doorbells, on the brochures next to where she was standing and definitely on the business cards in her hand.

When they check out, I rush out into the parking lot with a cloth bag full of books they left all over the room and a t-shirt that was on their couch.  She's still nasty - one of those biddys that doesn't have any other mode...  Oh, she doesn't want those books, we can keep them.  And that's not her shirt... that I found in a bag on the couch in her room.  Nope, that's not her shirt.  She won't look at it, she won't stop being nasty insisting that's not her shirt.   It's my size, but I'm afraid every time I wear it I'll think of her.

Before she left she made another reservation to come back .  Geez!  Worst part is that she's best friends with a lady that moved in next door to us.  The new neighbor is a well-connected, well-respected designer that just opened a business downtown and was woowed to do so by our mayor.  New neighbor is super nice... but apparently not all her friends are.  

 

Other issues:  Man had gastric bypass, can only have shakes for breakfast.  Brought his own stuff, including a VitaMix blender that he ran at 730am on Saturday (do you know how LOUD that thing is??)  Second day he did it later, but he's in the kitchen with us as we're trying to make breakfast wanting to wash his blender & so very much in my way.  I don't tolerate people in my kitchen in the morning (aside from the fact that it's not really allowed).

Woman checking out yesterday falls down our stairs.  She admits she had too many bags in her hands. Only fell a few steps to the top landing, but hurt both her knees.  Gave her ice packs for the drive home.  We were really concerned.  Luckily, she called today & she's not so bad.  *whew*

 

Not too often I'm happy for Monday to get here!

Guests in kitchen - no. I had one this morning who said, 'Behind you, I need water!' HELLO??? My kitchen is 3' wide. When DH is cooking and I am prepping our butts are practically touching (a few more slices of bacon and they will be!) and here comes this guest muscling her way thru to get to the sink.

We tell guests who 'need' to use the sink (none of our guest bathrooms HAVE sinks /jk) they have to wait until breakfast is over. Most of them just go to their room to wash out whatever.

I can get someone a glass of water. But DON'T come in the kitchen and try to push your way between 2 people with both a gas stove and a griddle running. (Not to mention the knives & forks in hand!)

This must have been the weekend for lock-outs!  I had quite a day on Sat., which I spent in the emergency room of the local hospital due to the worsening heart failure of a dear friend.  In any event, when I finally returned home DH luckily had canceled the dinner party we were supposed to host that evening.  With no dinner in the house, we decided to grab a quick bite out to relax a bit.  Upon our return, 1 hour later, the cottage guests approached us to let us know that we could ignore the two messages on our machine. They had left without their key and closed the locked door behind them. They managed to get into the cottage by climbing in the bathroom window that they left unlocked that morning.  Fortunately they were careful, didn't hurt themselves or wreck the paint on the window.  Whew!  What a day!

OH MY..I hope you didn't take a reservation for the PITA! Any day she wants...sorry we don't have anything available. There must be a reason she doesn't stay with the friend next door..and now you know why! GRRRRRR

I am so sorry you had that weekend. There are some people who really DO belong in a hotel!

She does remind me of the night when I was relief night audit at a H J (the orange roof chain) and turned around to the door to the rooms to find a woman standing there who had managed to lock herself out of her room - wearing her birthday suit.

Grrr!  That was some nasty weekend.  Sure hope it won't be repeated.  It is too bad that woman, loosely speaking and defiantly no lady, has too many connections or it would be 'sorry we are full'.  But there is nothing good going to come from that guest.  Wishing that PITA baton has some PITA power that you can wave over her when she returns.  heart

WOW!

K-9 we never say TGIF we say TGIM! 

Glad you made it out alive. In a few days, weeks, months you will have a good chuckle about this. I was wrong, too, the pita baton is now in...your hand. That is how is travels, it picks up the PITA current/airwaves and moves from inn to inn.

Except we don't do the passing...it moves vicariously among us...

Other than the fact our horse guests due in tonight neglected to call to tell us (after calling this morning to report a horse problem) that although the horse was able to travel, they changed their route and would not be coming tomorrow night either., The baton missed me. (My welder guy cut my grass again today because he had to work yesterday.) They are military and the stable told me not to charge them - so I didn't. I was only going to charge the stable fee - so they got a pass.
