Like if the hotel itself did that, then I'd see the bs. But a customer leaving money around for the staff to find just doesn't give me the icky vibes it gives yall.
I think if you leave it on the pillow or the desk the maid clearly knows it's for them.
If it's hidden in drawers or behind the curtain or under the bed I'd be worried that the guest lost the money and potentially will call my boss and complain especially if it's a generous tip?

Every job I've had where cleaning up after the public was a requirement. The rule was to return things like wallets and cell phones. Items that can be clearly described by the customer.

Cash was always free game for the employees cause anyone could claim it.

If the person who found it was nice they'd split it with the rest of the crew.

I could see how that could be a mix up tho. I could also see a shitty manager taking advantage of the poor soul who actually turned it in.

I get the "why not just leave it on the pillow" thing. But I feel like she meant she did both. Like the normal $1000 on the pillow and another $1000 sprinkled throughout the room.

And also, who the fuck wouldn't like a goddamn money scavenger hunt at work? Da fuq?

I haven't met the service worker who wouldn't want to have a day that's different than the typical mundane BS and ended with them being hundreds or thousands of dollars richer.

Are you in the service industry? Cos I am...and TRUST. Every god damn day is a new adventure. It's not mundane at ALL.

It's not funny when you do something right and a rich person says, "Watch out..that'll affect your tip.."

It's not funny when people say, "Oh, I'm SO high maintenance, this is gonna be a test for you!"

And it's not funny when people leave your tip hiding all around the room like you're a god damn dog.

Gross.


Love you, Mermaid...just not Oprah.

I am not currently in the service industry but I have worked a few service industry jobs.

I've never had experiences we rich jackasses cause there aren't many rich people where I'm from.

So my service industry days were yes busy but pretty mundane because the busy hours were at predictable times.

The picture yall are painting are of jackasses keeping your tip away from you. Or asking you to "dance boy!" for money.

I totally understand the gross-ness of that.

But from my understanding Oprah didn't withhold a tip from the cleaning crew. She just put additional tip money around the room. She didn't then hang around to see if they "danced" or mock them or treat them harshly.

In my mind I picture a cleaning lady entering the room. Seeing the tip money on the pillow and thinking that's it. Then goes about cleaning as usual and finding more money.

A pretty mundane day or cleaning one room after another made a little better.

I admit that my inexperience with rich assholes has probably skewed my vision of this scenario. And I totally get what yall are saying.

Chemda is out $2 when, upon seeing she doesn't really know your name and sent the money to a stranger, you send her a request so she pays the right person. And you leave the payment public with some snarky note.

I agree with Chemda about technology and progress. It's going to happen, so worry more about how it will be implemented.

As for Venmo, Keith is right. Also, you can't compare losing money from your wallet or pockets to an app where you can literally track each transaction and verify someone's information before you hit send. There are various measures to help you double-check what you're doing. I guess you could be more careful with your money and always put it in the same place in your wallet, but it's still easier to lose physical money.

I have lost money like I sent money to the wrong venmo. I wasnít paying attention.
In the venmo case I got it back.

Venmo is linked to peopleís email, they have a pic, and a lot of times a public history.
At this point, so many comics are using it that venmo has us all connected displaying our friends in common. So itís easier to find the right person.
