WE get some right fucking nut jobs at the hotel.
Atm we have a crazy women with us for 2 weeks, on more than one ocassion she has phoned Reception and demanded for Maintaence to fix the bed side lights, even though I have gone to her room and shown her that there is a switch above her bed to turn them on, she then proceeds to say they're too dark in BROAD daylight and she cannot read, with the certains open and demands for 120W lightbulbs, (we use power saving lightbulbs as a Green policy)
A customer Arrived this morning (part of a conference) and asked for there room at 11AM, I proceeded to explain 11AM is check out time and 2PM is check in, he then demanded his room saying its 11AM and its check out time so why cant he get the key? I swear we was thinking backwards, finally he understood me and demanded we REMOVED said person from the room and clean it by half past 11 so he can enter the room.
I politely told him to shove it. well more of.. "I'm afraid we cannot do that, your room will be ready at 2, I made sure his room was ready last
The amount of guests who ask if the coutesy bus is "FREE" and if they can use it even if they're not GUESTS even though its called the "guest coutosey bus"
the amount of people who phone up saying they were told this amount by this person and so and so, they say a name of someone who doesn't even work here, lol idiots.
there are so many more"Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, But who we are might be predetermined, the path we follow is always of our own choosing, we should never allow our fears, or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny cannot be changed but it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one."

I decided one day last year to do a bit of research into this. I asked the Bank of England how many £5 notes are in circulation. They tell me there are around 220 million of them in circulation at any one time. They also keep 200 million in storage. The notes stay in ciruclation for one year at most, usually because they deteriorate in quality very quickly - people just don't look after their money when they've got it. It would suggest that there's just over three fivers for every person in the country. However, can you remember any occasion when you had three fivers in your wallet? Nope. I have one if I'm lucky. I don't mind carrying pound coins - they're far more useful to me than notes - but some people get really hacked off by it. The people who get pissed off are usually middle-aged men who can't be arsed to buy a wallet, who know that they'll lose the coins in their pockets.
The Bank of England also tell me that there just over one billion £20 notes in circulation. This is a year in which they're changing the old twenties for new ones, and changing a billion of them is an astronomical task. With there being so many twenties, this explains why, when you go to a cash machine, you often get nothing but twenties. There's a mix of reasons - shops are holding onto smaller notes where they can, and the banks have also been accused of hogging them. They all deny the charge, incidentally. Some seem to give out more tenners from their ATMs than others, suggesting they're rather stung by this criticism.
Anyway, just a bit of insight into the subject.

There used to be one in Cotteridge that dished out fivers, gone now though.I've got plenty of baggage and i don't expect anyone to carry it for me. But you can have a good rummage through it if you'd like.

From working in a call centre -
Customer asks me (after 15 minutes speaking to me) if he's been speaking to India today. Does it sound like you're speaking to bloody India?
Old biddy who's daughter text her and she doesn't know how to open it. Spend 25 minutes getting her to open it (an achievment, considering she didn't listen to a word I said and didn't know what a keypad was) so she says thanks, and I ask her if there's anything else I can help her with. Of course, now she wants to know how to send one back. An hour and a half spent explaining how to text, and of course she wants to use proper words, punctuation and a long thing not far off War and Peace
From working in the bingo -
The bloke who threatened to go to trading standards because our menu displayed jumbo sausages instead of the two smaller ones we had for sale.
Customers who accused me of lying and stealing, because I gave them change off a tenner when they said they give me a twenty when they bought their bingo books. Every time this happened, the CCTV proved me right, and not once did I get an apology like I'd have had to give to them if I'd fucked up.
Have to admit that I've fucked up a few times though. One night this old couple came in first to buy their books, gave me a twenty and I checked it with the note checker pen. It marked all over it, so I said to my supervisor it was a dodgy note, the old couple looked horrified. Managers and everything came down, the queue behind them was out of the door, but it turned out in the end that instead of using the special note checker pen, I'd actually used a black marker insteadJimmy Must Go

No subsequent erotic experience ever matches the intensity of the first kiss, so perfect because it sketches for you vast horizons, limitless spaces, endless possibilites. Whatever faliures and flops follow, the kiss is never held responsible. The kiss never promises satisfaction, so it can never disappoint.'
