Charges can be insane when you call overseas.
I should know, I have spent most of my life using skype or similar services rather than making a call directly. Unless you get a package or it is an emergency, it is never recommended to call a person in another country. However, this particular guest wasn’t listening when the hotel clerk told him this.
She warned him not to do just that but after all what do women know? So it is no surprise that at the end of his stay, the total charge was quite insane. He wasn’t going to let this go and the hotel staff was afraid, he might not pay. So the manager took matters into her own hands and decided to do something about her unruly guest.
People just love to mention that ‘the customer is always right’.
She did try to help him but he wasn’t willing to listen.
Geez, I was using those phone cards back then. Calls were a few cents a minute depending on where you were calling. Literally sold in every convenience store. –nickis84
If I ever had to pay that amount, I would be angry as well.
I wasn’t aware clerks had that authority.
Exactly! Nothing in this world is free.
Did he really just lie upfront like that?
It definitely did not take him long to resort to insulting names.
Pushing them out really? That is hilarious.
In all fairness, hotel phone rates can be ridiculous. A hotel I stayed at didn’t give me any information on the phone rates. I asked the front desk how much my bill was and he jokingly said $500. When he checked my bill was actually over $600.
Was all local calls. I had forgotten to bring my phone to the hotel. Guess I should’ve gotten a taxicab and gotten a new iPhone and gotten unlimited calling for the month. But I guess the hotel was more convenient.
(And by the way, I didn’t complain at all. I paid my hotel bill. Was friendly with the front desk person. They took some off. I made more calls still so my bill still ended up being what was originally mentioned). –dave024
I would never cop him anything after seeing his horrible behavior.
He just wanted to talk to the manager.
I think we have finally found one. A male Karen!
I can already imagine the storm this is going to cause.
And of course, he wasn’t happy but what else could he do?
And he deserved to get sued as well.
