MeGrendel, Yes, they pay me my wage, and it is my job to meet their needs... to the extent at which my job description applies. My job is not housekeeping, nor is it maintenance. However, when the guests require such, i cannot (even if i wanted to) oblige them. Furthermore, it has not, nor ever will be my "job" to wait on a guest hand and foot, even if my employers want me to. Helping a guest, and making their stay a good one is something i can try my best to do, but people expect you to do more than you're required. No, i will not plunge your toilet for you, neither will i open breakfast half an hour before its supposed to be open. If i worked at a high dollar hotel, i could see how i would have to bend over and just take it. But i don`t. "That`s an occupantional hazard on pretty much every job." Firefighters getting burned or dying is an Occupational hazard. Dealing with people`s bad attitudes and utter disrespect towards "low wage" employees isn`t.
