fusillade762: The only time I ever complained about anything in a hotel room was the time I ordered "Die Another Day" on pay-per-view.
Rabid Badger Beaver Weasel: I did get a chuckle about the steak on the vegetarian menu. But how many of these are just trolling?
GoldSpider: Pulled from the pages of The Consumerist, no doubt.
Hz so good: "you served me left chicken legs when I specifically ordered right legs..."At least they didn't serve you a left Twix. That would've driven anybody postal.

Kazahmish: ...he tossed it on the grill picked it up immediately flipped it, and again, immediately placed it on the plate..
Hz so good: Kazahmish: ...he tossed it on the grill picked it up immediately flipped it, and again, immediately placed it on the plate..Ah, the old "black and blue". My aunt (an ER nurse) does the same thing. 2 minutes on one side, 1 minute on the other. Grosses me out everytime, and I like my steak very rare.*shudder*
Aigoo: Resident Muslim:I'm the type of person who MIGHT complain if there is a decomposing corpse in the middle of the living room.Otherwise...Seriously though, things I've complained about:- delayed check-in. Which can be a pain, especially if it was a trip to get there and you have kids running around the lobby.One of my best friends has worked in the hotel industry for several years. There's a couple of reasons for this (generally) that are not the desk staff's fault:1- The idiots in sales overbooked the hotel and didn't bother letting anyone know what they did (they said they booked 70 rooms, but as it turns out, the group arrives and needs 80 rooms--which sales knew, but never updated the paperwork on), so by the time you arrive, they're scrambling to find you a room because now, they have 200 rooms and 210 reservations. Not your fault or problem, but not the desk staff's fault, either. And trust me, they are every bit as frustrated--if not more so--as you are. Sweet Jesus, you would not believe how many desk staff have quit because of the abuse they take from customers over this.2- Some idiot housekeeper decided that their sammich was more important than getting your room ready for check in. I wish I was making this shiat up, but it's so damn ridiculous, you can't make it up. And it's a valid complaint that all y'all should be posting on whatever sites you rate hotels on: housekeeping didn't have the room ready for check-in. Seriously. Ask if that is the reason and then post that shiat in the ratings because in some hotels, that is the only way to get rid of those lazy damned idiots who won't do their jobs.Now, not saying that any Farkers are guilty of this, but why is it that when people go to a hotel, they lose their damn minds and start acting like an idiot on a reality show (like dude in the bathrobe that made them sing happy birthday to his dog in TFA)? No, those poor people trying to help you don't know who you are, they probably don't care, because right then, you are being a complete and total asshole on the level of Paris-Kanye-Lindsay-Hilton-Kardashian. Take a chill pill and learn to smile. They will bend over backwards for you if you make even a small effort to not be an ass about something they--and you--have no control over.

scottydoesntknow: 9. 16 pillows (for a single guest)There is nothing unusual about wanting to build a pillow fort.Also, why provide the entire list, and then spend 9 paragraphs after it saying exactly what the list said? Don't ever change Daily Fail.
whatshisname: My hotel room turned me into a newt.
To The Escape Zeppelin!: I used to work as night manager at a Marriott and one person requesting 16 pillows isn't unheard of. It happens every couple of months although it's usually because they're having their entire extended family stay in the room with them.Weirdest requests I ever got included someone taking the bathroom door off the hinges and bringing it down to the front desk to ask them to fix the bathroom lock, and a woman who called us about two hours after she'd left for the day and asked us to check on her baby, which she had left sleeping on the bed. We called the cops.
Kazahmish: I was a cook at a Holiday Inn back in the late 80s, and I had a guest that was a very important repeat customer and we were told that we had to basically bend over backwards for him... well he came in and ordered a NY Strip steak rare... so I sliced a nice slab, trimmed the fat off and cooked it rare.. he sent it back.. too done.. so I tried again... same thing..So I had him come into the kitchen and show me how he wanted his steak.. he tossed it on the grill picked it up immediately flipped it, and again, immediately placed it on the plate.. it barely did anything to it.. I grabbed the plate and told him that I WILL NOT serve this as it is unsafe, if he wanted this he needs to go home and cook it himself and then I told him to leave.. well the manager of the hotel came in and he was fuming.. until I told him what the guest wanted... he put him on the perma ban list...some people just don't realize that just because they eat something that rare at home.. a restaurant cannot serve something that under cooked.. I hate making rare steaks anyways.. but I draw the line at that one.. lol
Rabid Badger Beaver Weasel: Bendal:My wife has a friend that, when the server asked her how rare she wanted her steak, said "show the cow a picture of fire". :)/she got it cooked rare//everyone got a good laugh thoughI like that one. I'm going to have to steal that.
