How do you know if you are a Hotelier?

You are in the hotel industry, if ... ... ...

You sat at the same desk for 4 years and worked for 8 different managers

“Going for cocktails and dinner” is NOT your idea of a nice evening

When someone asks you your exact job profile, you lie

You get really excited about a 2% pay increase

You sit in a cubicle smaller than your bedroom closet

It’s dark on your drive to and from work

Communication is something your “group” is having problems with

You see a good looking person and you know it’s a visitor/guest

Food left over from a banquet or meeting is your main staple diet

You forget what you look like in anything but a suit

All the work you were hired to do gets done before 9 and after 5

You’re already late on an assignment you just received

Your boss’s favourite lines are
a. “When you get a minute…”
b. “In your spare time….”
c. “I have an opportunity for you…”

50% of the people in your company don’t know what you do

The other 50% of the people in your company don’t care what you do

Vacation is something you roll over to next year, if you are allowed

Change is the norm
Nepotism is encouraged
Six months is considered to be substantial longevity
You dial “9″ before the number no matter where you are calling from
When you are walking in public, you have to fight the urge to pick up little scraps of paper and rubbish on the floor
Your toilet paper at home is folded in a triangle on the first sheet
You answer the phone at home “Hello this is….., how may I help you?”
You eat in hotel restaurants for fun
You inspect your hotel room when travelling
Most of all, you read this entire list and understand it!
