#5 The Backpackers Who Think They’re In A 5-Star Hotel
The person who stares daggers at you because you’ve just checked in and now you’re crashing and thumping around the room unpacking your stuff and making your bed while they’re trying to sleep… even though it’s 8:15pm and the rest of the people in your dorm are downstairs drinking beers so sooner or later they’re gonna come thundering in anyway.
You’ll find yourself thinking, “Oh I’m sorry, am I making too much noise? Are you not enjoying the 8-bed dorm experience? Because you know, there are other places in town you could stay tonight – you won’t have to put up with any of this crap at the Hilton or the Duxton, or any of the other 5-star luxury hotels. Can’t afford it? No, neither can I, so shut the hell up and lose the judgmental glare because we’re all in this together.”
This is also the same person who – if you’re unlucky enough to wind up on a first-name basis – will complain about the lack of hot water in the showers, the thickness of the mattress, the rotten smell in the laundry, or the fact that a beer from reception costs a whopping $1.80 when the corner store down the road sells that same beer for $1.60.
And once again, you’ll find yourself thinking, “Don’t like it? Go to a 5-star hotel. The only thing the rest of us are complaining about is being stuck in a dorm with you.”
