Why does this guy keep touching me?
Posted Jul 6, 2016
There was some confusion as to whether or not I had paid for my reservation before I had arrived. I was under the impression that I had, but it turned out I was wrong. To come to this conclusion I wanted to ask some questions, which apparently upset the staff.
I booked the room with Expedia, so I wanted to make sure there wasn't a disconnect between the travel company and the motel before I forked over any money. The questions I was asking were just payment schedules and their policies. During all this, one of the staff could not speak to me without either raising his voice, putting his hand in my face or touching my arm.
I told them I would quickly double check everything with Expedia, and this caused the staff to explode. He told me that if I had to check up on him then I should just go to another hotel and see what kind of rate I get. His temper was cooled by the other staff person. I called, and I was still required to pay (which was fine).
As I was paying the same staff person kept telling me how I was wrong and they never do prepaid stays--all the while grabbing at me and touching my arm.
Please note, this was not a "call the police" sort of thing. It was just a weird and uncomfortable sort of thing.
