How to Treat Hotel Staff At An Event

calling of the dragon, magician summoning monster, sorcerer casts a spell“Well,” Eddie said, “What was behind Door Number One wasn’t so hot, and what was behind Door Number Two was even worse, so now, instead of quitting like sane people, we’re going to go right ahead and check out Door Number Three. The way things have been going, I think it’s likely to be something like Godzilla or Ghidra the Three-Headed Monster, but I’m an optimist. I’m still hoping for the stainless steel cookware.”

~Stephen King, “The Dark Tower: The Drawing Of The Three”

You should always be polite to the hotel staff, as though they were massive transmogrified dragons, hurriedly stuffed into and barely contained by human bodies, perfectly capable of simultaneously clawing you into sashimi while baking you into brisket.

But the reason you should be polite isn’t because they are massive transmogrified dragons, hurriedly stuffied into and barely contained by human bodies, perfectly capable of simultaneously clawing you into sashimi while baking you into brisket, though, if truth be told, they ARE massive transmogrified dragons, hurriedly stuffied into and barely contained by human bodies, perfectly capable of simultaneously clawing you into sashimi while baking you into brisket.

No, the reason you should always be polite to the hotel staff is because that’s simply the appropriate way to behave towards the tireless people who work at your event’s venue. It helps them better serve you, it helps the event’s relationship with the venue itself, it helps the industry have a better opinion of we strange people who infest their pristine event spaces, and, frankly, you taste TERRIBLE as brisket.
