Humans need to take care of their basic needs.
And what I mean by that is we need to drink water and go to the bathroom to survive. I wish that wasn’t the case but it is so unless we invent cyberwar that lets us forgo basic needs, even employees need to take breaks. However, most managers don’t seem to understand this and will only give small breaks to their employees in which eating half a sandwich isn’t possible. I remember shovelling my face with food every time I would get a break before it was over and it was never a pretty sight.
Well, that is sort of what is happening in this particular instance. You see, hotel management thinks that using the bathroom or drinking water in front of the guests is unprofessional. I don’t know about buy if an employee was drinking after in front of me, I wouldn’t really care. These managers however doc are and thus they imposed a rule where employees had to go to the back to drink water and couldn’t use the bathroom nearest to them. As you can probably expect, this did not go well for the management.

We start right off with the heart of the problem. The management doesn’t know what it’s doing.
Nobody is allowed to drink water in front of the guests or use the close toilet.
It is apparently not professional and guests don’t like to see other humans fulfilling their basic needs.
So this employee was all too happy to comply with these rules.
Except for the fact that management clearly did not know what they had started and it all went horribly wrong for them.
What did they think would happen? That employees magically would not need to use the washroom or they would run back and forth between the basement and the front desk? Were guests complaining about employees drinking water in front of them? This is all just so bizarre and I have no idea who thought this was a good idea. Some people should not be managers and this is a great example of that.
People in the comments were quite surprised by all of this as well.
The management might not be human seeing as they employed this dumb rule.
That is the question, isn’t it?
That would have been great but this was a close second.
Apparently, this kind of thing happens a lot.
Who thinks of this stuff anyway?
A lot of higher-ups do think of employees as their robots so this makes sense.
That would be amazing though a bit embarrassing.
My only question is why?
Who hired these people to work as amangers?
You know what else falls into the basic needs of humans? Adorable dog tax!
