    [–] In broad daylight, even. Catona 1 points ago in MurderedByWords

    I'm most interested in the forming of consciousness happening five months after birth part.

    How is this something that could be measured and verified? And I'd be interested to see the source that this came from.

    That is the only part in there that I cannot say I automatically agree with.

    [–] The first time I yelled at a guest Catona 1 points ago in TalesFromTheFrontDesk

    Good job.

    She was obviously trying to pull something shady using her "probable but unverified" previous experience as an employee to just try and skate in and avoid standard protocol.

    And all of us in here have heard the horror stories that past or even current employees of sister properties have caused. It always amazes me that someone who works in this profession can so easily flip a switch and turn into the very type of person they themselves loath dealing with. Shameful people.

    [–] Why do I attract the crazies and why do my managers not care?! Catona 2 points ago in TalesFromTheFrontDesk

    to be able to tell him he has to leave without extreme confrontation against yourself. You can tell him that management has specifically stated that he is no longer allowed on the property "due to complaints from guests" and that "unfortunately" you have to ask him to leave.

    There's ways like that to tell someone they need to leave that do not make it seem like you specifically are giving the orders for him to do so.

    [–] Maybe next time don't book through a third party. Catona 51 points ago in TalesFromTheFrontDesk

    Those scummy bastards. I have had them try and pull the same thing with me before.

    No, sorry. You pushed through a reservation for a room that at the time did NOT EXIST to be rented.

    The contract states that we may have to pay a relocation fee if we are unable to accommodate a guest, that has a valid reservation for an actual existing room, due to some sort of problem on our end.

    It most definitely says nothing about us having to pay YOU when you make a mistake.

    [–] What is the human equivalent of a bug repeatedly flying into a pane of glass, even after you've opened the window for them? Catona 1 points ago in AskReddit

    As someone who spent a decade and a half working at a hotel. I swear 70% of people ignore everything you are telling them during check in, some almost seeming to get impatient waiting for you to stop talking so that they can ask you about the very same things that you've just told them.

    That and "Thank you for calling (hotel brand) in (City), how may I help you?"

    "yeah, is this (hotel brand) in (city)?"


    [–] Squall line with several embedded tornadoes moves through the greater Cleveland area Catona 1 points ago in WeatherGifs

    I was in Westlake when I saw this move through. It was very strange. It didn't really do anything where I was at other than get VERY dark while it moved through.

    When you see something as crazy as that looked coming through silently by you, it's usually a pretty good sign that it's strength is being let out elsewhere along the line.

    [–] What things do people not clean correctly? Catona 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Soaking them in hot soapy water for a while and then just running water through them in the sink will usually do the trick.

    Just put one end of the straw directly into the faucet stream and it will run water through it, no need to actually suck it through yourself.

    [–] What things do people not clean correctly? Catona 5 points ago in AskReddit

    Right. Cleaning a vagina and cleaning the labia are two very different things. Your actual inner workings by no means require a scrubbing, in fact that usually causes issues as opposed to preventing them.

    The labia, however, definitely should be kept clean.

    [–] What things do people not clean correctly? Catona 1 points ago in AskReddit

    My ex husband wouldn't rinse them properly. They were "clean", but he'd put them in the drying wrack with visible suds still on them...

    [–] What things do people not clean correctly? Catona 2 points ago in AskReddit

    A friend of mine has reusable straws (think fun twisty ones) that she would just toss into the dishwasher and consider them clean.

    Witnessing this one day and being slightly horrified. I explained that water isn't actually getting inside the straws to clean them properly in the dishwasher and she couldn't wrap her head around the fact that there was anything a dishwasher could not thoroughly clean.

    I took some elaborate opaque novelty straw and cut it open. Yeah.....all sorts of built up residue. Gross. I hope she does more to clean them right these days.

    I think this is something that varies greatly from person to person with different variables causing that area to have a scent.

    I've never had that area have a scent attributed to it before.

    [–] What's something you're super passionate about that you can't talk about with your friends? Catona 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Plenty of stuff, actually. I have a pretty wide range of interest, yet none of my immediate close friends have any of the same.

    I tend to go on rants on all sorts of topics which probably go in one ear and out the other for them.

    I love to go hiking and will go with my friends often. I'm very into mycology and plant identification, geology and mineralogy and just all things nature science to some extent. So the whole time I'm pointing out all the species we come across and telling all sorts of random facts and tidbits about anything we encounter.

    In reality, I should be employed as a naturalist so I can actually get paid to do this, ha ha

    [–] What's the strangest food combination that you've had and actually enjoyed? Catona 7 points ago in AskReddit

    I live in Ohio and it's pretty common here. I grew up with it, and there are many restaurants in the area that serve fries with aioli, which is basically just flavored mayonnaise.

    [–] What's the strangest food combination that you've had and actually enjoyed? Catona 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Kidney beans, fresh thin sliced garlic, cottage cheese, cajun seasoning. Heated just enough so that the cottage cheese melts, mix it all together.

    It's really quite amazingly good. Just something I made for myself on a whim one day and loved it. Total delicious comfort food.

    It's also a pretty healthy meal.

    [–] 🔥 this cayman chilling next to a capybara, amazing Catona 46 points ago in NatureIsFuckingLit

    I've over time become completely convinced that capybaras are one of the most completely chill creatures on the entire planet.

    [–] Moonstones in WA Catona 3 points ago in rockhounds

    Got any pics?

    [–] What actually DID live up to the hype? Catona 1 points ago in AskReddit

    i was....not prepared for this when I went to see it in theaters. I was by no means expecting for it to make me cry. Let alone for like half the movie.

    [–] What actually DID live up to the hype? Catona 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Watching this live was one of the most exhilarating and exciting things I have seen in a long, long time. I was filled with so my joy watching everything play out in absolute perfection....starman cruising up into space with David Bowie soundtrack.

    Not going to lie, it truly brought a tear of joy to my eye.

    [–] Shard of glamour. Catona 4 points ago in UnconventionalMakeup

    This is really spectacular. Perfectly, gorgeously done!

    [–] Amazing mineral specimens from the Galerie de Mineralogie in Paris Catona 2 points ago in geology

    [–] This is how a Bridge is Constructed across water. Catona 2 points ago in pics


    I have actually always wondered how they build underwater structures like that. Thank you for the information! I can now finally wrap my head around this, haha.
