For those like me, the solo workers, I know there are a few, how do you deal with so much work ?
I had to close my calendar off for 3 weeks, I just had enough of people.
I am limiting guests at the moment and so far, they have all been lovely nice people which has helped. It was just getting me down how people were treating my home and me.
People were robbing food and clearing out the breakfast room and taking it all with them. I mean even down to getting bags and emptying the cereal containers (have 8 different types)
Destroying my lovely sheets and duvets.
Finding body fluid stains in the beds and don't get me started on the bathrooms.
I spent hours cleaning, get on my hands and knees and in 12 hours you would think a group of wild monkeys had checked in without my knowledge.
Then there is the furniture movers, who decide to move the beds around, even though they are staying one night.
One guest left blood all over the floor in her bedroom and bathroom, never even mentioned it, hugged me goodbye, never mentioned while hugging me that a scene from a horror movie lie inside the room for me.
I get blamed for guests getting lost, even though I send directions and advise them that booking,com have a great app to direct guests. You would think I pick up the house and move it around just to confuse them.
Another guest left the windows open in a hurricane and destroyed my blinds, the room was covered in debris. She then told me it was a bit chilly last night, we had warned her that a hurricane was coming and then when it arrived, you knew it had arrived.
"I will be there at 2.00 pm," then you wait in all day and after at 8.00 pm. I am 4 hours now waiting for 2 guests, am wrecked as one of my children was sick so up all night with him.
Not in a million years would I leave a hotel room or anything dirty. I don't understand the mentality of people, especially as we are a small business share the same house.
Thats it, off my chest-I need a sweet cup of tea
