Remember that old say-no-to-drugs PSA with the egg and the frying pan -- this is your brain, this is your brain on drugs, blah blah blah? Well, that commercial could just as easily have been re-dubbed for the travel industry to say: “This is your brain on vacation.” Because for whatever reason, people who pack 14 suitcases to go to the beach always seem to forget something very important: common sense.
Or so say this nation’s hotel workers. We asked a bunch of them for some of the most annoying, obtuse, or just flat-out rude questions guests ask while staying at a hotel. Here are 17 of the worst:
1. "Can I have a late check-out?"
See, when you do eight Jaeger shots, wake up at 11am, and realize your check-out time was 10.30am, we now have to rush to have your room ready by 4pm for the next guest. Making your hangover the problem of our poor housekeeping staff -- who you absolutely, 100% will not tip.
