Sharing this on condition that this remains anonymous.
I am 26 Male, and I used to work in this big hotel and this incident happened one night while I was on duty.
I worked a particularly slow day and during those shifts I like to talk to the guests.
One of them was a 22 year old teacher who was traveling by herself and a guest of the hotel. I get off work early and I decide to go out for a couple drinks.
At a bar nearby, I see the guest whom I served earlier in the day.
She is very clearly drunk and proceeds to throw up all over the bar. Now this part of the country is kinda known for sleazy guys and she’s by herself, so I take her back to the hotel and get her in her room safe before anyone can take advantage of her.
I leave her my number to text me when she’s awake to make sure she’s okay and she thanks me the next morning and explains she was blackout drunk and barely remembers any of the night.
I thought that was the end of it, until my boss pulled me into a room and proceeded to fire me for “fraternizing with a guest”.
I explained that I only got her to her room safe and was worried because she was young and alone, but nope. I’m officially unemployed now. For helping a drunk girl get back to her hotel okay.
Here are some comments seen online
- You should feel proud to tell your next employer why you got fired. Many of us would be thrilled to have someone like you on our team!
- You might have missed the detail that she got drunk in a different bar outside the hotel.
