I’m not sure whether I’m on the side of Karen or Kevin in this particular exchange, but a vaunted “Sleep Inn Diamond Member” was tossed out of a hotel after he called the front desk clerk a female dog.
Hotel Clerk Is Not Receptive To Insults From Sleep Inn “Diamond” Guest
The exchange begins with the front desk clerk, wearing a pink cap, telling the guest:
“You called me a b*tch and you’re an absolute nobody. A piece of…You’re scum. You’re nothing. You can leave.”
Ozzy responds that he is leaving, but not before he turns his phone around and laments, “This is how they treat their Diamond members.”
Sleep Inn is part of the Choice Hotel chain, which does have a Diamond level in its Choice Privileges loyalty program. Achieving Diamond status requires staying 40 nights per calendar year.
I wasted far too much time replaying the video over and over again in an attempt to properly hear the location of the motel (“[indecipherable] Lake”). It really doesn’t matter.
Sure, I’d love to know what led to this exchange, but the interesting thing to me is that the front desk clerk did not tolerate being called a b*tch. And I applaud that.
I don’t applaud the way she dished out a whole lot of insulting shade toward the guest, but when we are cursed at our defense mechanisms may sometimes cloud our judgment.
It could well be that she was quite rude from the start, but that does not justify calling her a female dog.
If you’re feeling like some humor, the comments on Reddit are a hoot and not particularly favorable to the hotel guest.
Hotel Desk Clerks Hate Elites
I think it is fair to say that hotel desk clerks cannot stand entitled elites. I just saw it myself at a Hyatt in Orange County recently, where a Globalist member made all sorts of demands to the poor agent, a lovely young woman who just took it all in stride. These people are pathetic.
On the other hand, I noticed comments like this on Reddit, which are cause for alarm:
A franchise location does not spare a Hilton-branded property from offering late checkout. Shame on the franchise.
This was an enjoyable exchange and the point of this post is simply a reminder to be kind to the folks who are checking you into and out of your hotel room. Put yourself in their shoes and treat them the way you want to be treated. If they are rude, take note of their name, but do not cuss them out or else you’ll find yourself the one being ridiculed.
