But then they turn out to be the nicest people in the world!
One couple came, and HE wouldn't even look at me! When I talk to people, I look at them in their eyes. I don't even know what color his eyes were, cause he never looked at me. Very odd, to me. SHE was a little bit better. I thought he was the biggest grump ever.
BUT, when they were leaving, he said that this was the nicest B&B he's ever been at. He saw my police plaques on the wall, and then said to me "thank you for your service". I got goosebumps, and I told him that NOBODY has ever said that before to me and thanked him. He made me feel so good!
He turned out to be a very, very nice man, and I thought he was the biggest grump in the world. go figure.

Some people are just shy at first. We've had similar first encounters where people seem cool/frosty/uneasy and then they get comfortable. Others manage to stay frosty, but I think they have to work really hard at it ;) .

Yes we have had similar. Just remember everyone is different. We may never know how we have touched someone. It's so hard not to judge..something I have trouble with, but am trying so to change that. As my husband constantly reminds me "never assume anything!" I know..but it is difficult

I always thought I was good at "reading" people. But this man threw me for a loop! You are right -- "don't assume".

Thank you for serving!
Joke about a shy ethnic group: How do you know someone's a [shy ethnic group] extrovert? He looks at your feet instead of his own!

Some first time B&B goers are out of their element until they relax a bit. Usually it takes Dh to walk out in his levi's and tshirt.

So when I am out mowing the lawn and sweating like a pig, I am actually making my guests feel at ease ... I like that

Well no, they think you are the lawn guy.
It happens here, becomes the topic of conversation when DH is out mowing the lawn. Kind of a guy thing - like popping your head under the hood of a car. LOL

Yes, you can get away with it being a guy.
I don't think guests like the disheveled female innkeeper look much. Maybe I'm wrong about this?? Had guests last week check in early & with the heat, humidity & how I was running around...I was clean but very mussed up and frazzled looking. I usually try to at least brush my hair!

Just think how relaxed they'd be if we walked out just wearing boxers.

I have been working around the yard and not watching the time..and uh oh..guests show up... so they know I was working...I just apologize and continue on. Hey this is our home and our life...we can't be looking spit polished and shined all the time. I sure hope they realize that.

Oh absolutely the female innkeeper must look lovely, the male can be rough and sweaty and wearing a ballcap. In fact the moreso the more they love him.

Hubs is disheveled if his button down shirt is untucked.
I answered the door today at 12:30 with a towel in my hand and the guests walked in and said, 'We know it's too early...' and I said, 'Yes, it is.' HE wanted to know when they could come back. I said, 'At check-in, 3 PM.'
When they came back I was getting out of the car with the laundry. I pointed to it and said, 'This is why check-in is at 3 PM.'
