Anonymous6 Jan 2011
Hope everyone has entered this BT competition:
Nothing but the most exclusive locations for BT prizes these days 😉
While the winner gets a one night stay, we can only postulate what the second prize might be.
Two nights, perhaps?6 Jan 2011
Perhaps a repeat of the stay I had a little while ago in Manchester.
Went to bed at about 10.30pm after a day of meetings.
1100 – Loud group of women scream their way down the corridor – one of those things, not the end of the world
Midnight – Loud women perform ‘conga’ down corridor while knocking on every door along the way
1210 – return of conga, self and others along corridor go out and explain facts of life to them.
1230 – Every door in corridor gets a loud bang on it
1am – Fire alarm goes off, join drunken women and 40 or so very unhappy people in carpark
2am Get back to bed
3am Fire alarm goes off again, back to carpark – police called. Fat, ugly, drunken sluts warned in carpark in full hearing of everybody – some chastened looks, some giggling, some drunken falling over.
4am Police return with sirens and blue lights – reason unknown but can suspect
4.30 am – Woken by very drunk woman who is in tears demanding I open the door as I “don’t love her any more and she wants her ring back”
6.30am Breakfast surrounded by some of the ’40 or so very unhappy people’ from night before.
7.00am Checkout – “Did you have a pleasant stay with us Sir?”6 Jan 2011
Very similar thing (but only one instance and no fire alarm – or wanting ring back) happened to me on Tuesday.
When asked same question and I said unfortunately not, hotel receptionist offered a no quibble refund of the room price.
Although much appreciated, I didn’t take it as I had not reported the incident.6 Jan 2011
VK, the third prize is really special…….BT have really excelled this time….it’s an gourmet meal with one of the aviaton industry’s leaders….yes, you’ve got it:
A sandwich and coffee with Michael O’Leary on board one of his 737s.
Now don’t all rush forward to the gate…you have to pay he check-in fee first!6 Jan 2011
What annoyed me was this was not a cheap hotel with some poor minimum wage night porter on his own, this was a quality five star hotel. I think it’s unfair to name it as the fault of course lays with the women mentioned but this is an area where hotels need to do more.
I must also say that I find it much more difficult to know how to handle a drunken aggresive woman than I do a drunk man. My wifes’ suggestion that they deserved “a good slap” would have probably seen me spend the night in a different room altogether however if I had done that to a drunk man hammering on my door it would have been different.6 Jan 2011
