Publisher's Summary

There are a great many horror stories from people who have stayed in hotels and had a miserable experience. No offense to those people, but working there isn't all rainbows and sausages either. The front desk, usually the first and last point of contact, is where the vast majority of foolishness takes place. And the front desk agent is witness to it all. One of those front desk agents was me. Armed with bitterness, sarcasm, and general unpleasantness, I try to survive the world of The Hotel, a place filled with overly perky HR people, mind numbingly dull coworkers, and managers sent straight from the darkest pit of Hell. That's not to mention the guests, a whole breed of crazy all on their own. Join me on my journey where I learn that the hospitality industry isn't very hospitable and perhaps I don't have the right attitude to be in it.

Fantastic Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The is one of the better books I have listened to. So much that I have listened to it multiple times. The narrator MAKES this book!!!

I know people are entitled to their own opinion but.....get over yourself it's just a book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Book made me constantly laugh.

Any additional comments?

The Narrator is perfect!!!

Tip Please!

Having worked within Hotel Industry since my teens, I figured this was a sure buy for memory lane. Some of the stories amusing - but - took me a long time to get thru the audio of the book - did not keep my attention as much as I thought it would. Yet, I found my self shaking my head at so many of the true things that happen in hotel world.

SO funny!

Mindless fun. I laughed out loud so many times. The narration was annoying in the beginning but once I got used to it, I really enjoyed his style.

McKernan Makes It!

This is a humorous story told in the first person by the writer. The story itself is helped by the narration from Brandon McKernan, who brings the characters to life and infuses more humor through the narration.

Sarcastic bullshit

Not entertaining or informative at all! Worst audiobook I've encountered so far! I would love a refund! I never write bad reviews. I usually just don't bother. I can't believe he got a book deal!

Boring

The guys voice is as boring as his story. I couldn’t get past the 2nd chapter and had to return the book.
