My Undermining

It's the type of guest who has been a pain all night, isn't listening to what you're saying, and just won't accept that this isn't how things are done.

It's a time when you are playing it by the book because you know it will be difficult and you don't want management to have any reason to question your actions.

It's the type of supervisor who will bend over backwards because they don't want someone raising their voice to them...

...and will then scarper so you're left dealing with the guest for the rest of the night, who will think you don't know how to do your job and will make the next few hours of your shift hell.


I used to have this happen all the time when I worked on the bar. The guest refuses to acknowledge what you're saying, won't accept they're wrong and you're just doing you're job. The supervisor then makes them think they're right (THIS IS DANGEROUS), and that you're an idiot who doesn't know the procedures and policies of the hotel as well as they do, leaving you to deal with the consequences.

On the plus side if the guest continues to be a pain, you can go and see the supervisor's supervisor and tell him exactly what you think of the supervisor and why.


Irritatingly, on nights I now have to deal with an absent supervisor, courtesy of hotel guest relations and a 24hr telephone hotline.

Now, the guest who is being a chore can ring a guest relations operator who will bend over backless regardless of the problem, and duly ring me to tell me to do whatever the guest wants. Complimentary goods run rampant.


Don't get me wrong, I don't usually play things completely by the book. It is a GUARANTEED way to irritate people who would overwise be quite easy to get along with. However, there are some people you just cannot do this with...

...and at times like this you just have to remotely disconnect the phone in their room.

Yes, I hate this too... I told some guy who has been very rude to me personally (not work related)he'd need to "log a call" for something that he thought he could just "come over and chat" for, and he looked over to my superior (who's told us all we MUSTN'T "do" personal approaches to the helpdesk) who just said to him something like "What do you need?" and did it on the spot.

:-(

"Oh, we need him around, he knows x, y and z" was their response....

*Sigh*

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.

They refer to the cut, clarity, carat and color. Does the activity call
for extra traction, more ventilation, more insulation
far more support? Though its cheap price, it defies the expectation of seeing or
feeling low price. Those were the Nike jordans shoes that developed it all.
