Tis' the season to be jolly.
Well... not if you're in housekeeping. I'm tired of people yelling and talking down to me, or the people around me. I'm perfectly aware that most of the staff here come from less fortunate backgrounds than most of us - but that by no means gives anyone a reason to dismiss them like trash.
Now that I have been in housekeeping for a few months I'm tired of always hearing the negative, never any positive feedback. And so are everybody else. Some of these people have hearts of gold! They deserve so much better. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've gone in the pantry to cry. Think about this before going into hospitality - your colleges, mentors, superiors and guests will all scream at you, for no apparent reason.
This was never finished, and never published back in December when I wrote it. A month later I was attacked by an employee. By an colleague. In my work place. I haven't spoken about it, and of course not even written about it. My hotel thinks I'm to blame. I think this is one of the biggest let downs you can have at work.
