Ah, Valentine’s Day, the holiday where couples with 9 to 5 jobs get to terrorize people in various industries. If you work in entertainment, service, or hospitality, I am so sorry. You do not deserve the chaos, madness, and terror that is coming to you during this Hallmark card of a holiday.
For most people in the hospitality industry, January and February are chill months! Unless your hotel is hosting a convention or you worked at an Arizona Hotel last weekend, your hotels are likely pretty empty. This time of the year is a good time to recoup after months of seemingly endless holidays. Unfortunately, the chill days must be randomly interrupted by two insane days of couples trying to have the best night of their lives. What a joke. If you are working in housekeeping, I’m thinking of your especially. You do not deserve what is coming to you.
