[BlindGossip] This fashionable diva is very particular when she travels. Staff records across one hotel chain include the notation “difficult guest”. When she stays at one of their hotels, she has her assistant call down to the front desk dozens of times each day and night to demand things that she doesn’t want to handle herself. The caller ID always shows her name as Dorothy (the alias she uses when she travels).
When the staff person rings the doorbell to the suite, they have to announce their name, their position with the hotel, and why they are there. When they enter the room, the staff person is not allowed to look Dorothy in the eye or to speak to her directly.
Dorothy: “Tell them that the thermostat in the room needs to be set at 70, not 72.”
Star’s assistant or sibling: “Miss Dorothy needs the thermostat in the room to be set at 70, not 72.”
Hotel worker: “OK, well, here is the thermostat on the wall. If you want to change the temperature, all you have to do is move this lever from 70 to 72.”
Star: “Tell them that I’m not responsible for maintenance issues.”
Star’s assistant or sibling: “Miss Dorothy is not responsible for maintenance issues.”
Sigh. We can’t wait for Dorothy Jr. to grow up.
