    You can see the child on the right is absolutely uncomfortable. I feel bad for him.

    And coffee crisp. According to some tourists, that isn't a thing in the states either.

    Oh man. I used to manage a corner store. Had a month where it would happen every Sunday. Signs everywhere: Coffee machines, fridges, both exits, cigarette board, on the lottery screen, on the card terminals and still...

    Best was the woman who literally lifted the paper on the card machine to insert it.

    Both parents are Anglo. I've had my share of language oppression by the French and am sometimes salty about it.

    But, it takes just ONE entitled pseudo-business tycoon from ON for me to curse "les ostis de têtes carrés" .

    Politeness goes a long way. My hotel is often 100%, as well as all the surrounding hotels.

    If I'm not too busy during my audit and you're polite and understanding, I'll call my old hotel and see if I can hook you up with a good room and even get $40 - $80 knocked off the price.

    Act like a dick and I'll direct you to wait for a shuttle to the next hotel that I know is fully booked.

    No you cannot sleep in the lobby. Yes your flight is cancelled. Yes it sucks. Yes you're a PeriodicTable Member. But, still, no.

    You'll bitch about the lack of hospitality for not letting you sleep for free in the lobby. If I let you do it, I have to let everyone do it.

    You'd appreciate if I did it. But, if you paid for a room and had a 6am meeting in the same lobby with a colleague/friend/wtv, you'd be appalled at the fact that you have to wade through a refugee camp to find a spot to have a coffee in peace.

    Think for a moment.

    I agree wholeheartedly. But, I find admin at most hotels enable shit behaviour.

    At my old hotel this absolutely cheap, rude, entitled and blackmailing client had an issue with the room design and somehow made it to being upgraded to our brand new Executive room for the rest of her long stay.

    Her resv was Flexpedia prepaid for a standard room (ballpark of $120/night). "I'm not paying a dime more!!" was her response when we offered an upgrade the first time. This executive suite was brand new and our regulars were willing to cough up anywhere from the $400 to $600 a night to try it out. Nope, this bitch gets it at not a dime more for at least 5 nights. Of course, the pricing code discrepancy for that room took me an hour to figure out. Can you say I was livid when I found out why?

    Lots of people just take bitching at hotel staff as their small victory on a cancelled flight day.

    Canceled flight due to weather probably means that it's not only your flight cancelled. You won't believe the amount of idiots that are pissed and accuse us of lying when they find out we don't have rooms. Flights cancel at noon. By 2pm max, we're full. But, Mr. 1am walk-in thinks I'm just too lazy to make a reservation.

    Mr. PeriodicTableMember reserved just before 2pm the same day (because cancelled flight) and is livid we don't have an upgrade to offer.

    I sort of miss individually owned hotels, I had the freedom to give my 100% and also let people in on when I thought they were being dumb.

    Hotel clients don't read signs. Their brain is the first on and last off airplane mode when they travel.

    [–] Horsin' around with some new ideas SmilingMisanthrope 2 points ago in ketorecipes

    • 1tsp Salt
    • 1/2 tbsp of fresh cut parsley
    • 1/2 tsp of Black pepper.
    • Diced red onion to taste.
    • 100g of ground horse meat.

    Mix all ingredients. Make a patty.

    • Heat oil in skillet on medium.

    I like running in the most inconvenient stuff. Running in the lightest running shoes and pants won't condition me for when I'm running someone down in boots and jeans, with extra weight on my back.

    I usually run in boots, jeans, a thick hoodie or crewneck, while wearing a backpack with my wrist weights and some extra items in it lol.

    All the sins.

    Scorpios will throw cheeks if you let them think they're as intense and mysterious as they think they are.
