Just found photos from my work Christmas drinks on the reception computer. It scares me there is photographic evidence of how out of control that night got….
I found a way to express how I feel about working 12 hour night shifts for the last 3 weeks

Chris & Josh - “Backpacker”
My housemate has been making a web series. Beyond the “Hey, that’s my apartment!” novelty, it’s also a really fun series. Check it out.
Also, working at a Backpacker’s hostel makes this even more enjoyable. Silly backpackers!
Working in tourism/hospitality, I am constantly amazed by the tendency of the French to announce their nationality at the first possible opportunity
At least once a shift:
Me - “Hello, [redacted] backpackers”
French person - “Hello, I am French. Do you have availability?”
See this? This is my “after a break-up, I slept at work and am now halfway though a 16 hours shift” face.
Also, I need to shave…
Work is dead boring, so I am budgeting/planning a trip to go to the Japanese Grand Prix. Serious business!
I have worked 26 out of the last 37 hours. And by worked, I mean I sat reception and:
- Read “The History Boys”
- Planned the theatre I will do for the next year
- Watched the trailers for every movie release for 2012
- Procrastin-ate everything
And I got paid to do it all!
Just when I thought work had ruined my day, a man walks past my desk with bottle of red wine under one arm, and a Mac book play Katy Perry under the other.
Then I remember why I love this place.
Using me to find out about a product, then booking it infront of me (excluding me from the sale) is a jerk move. Next time, do your own damn research!!
Someone who wants to stay in a job
1 hour into my epic (and probably illegal) 17 hour work shift:
Customer - “Excuse me, someone has thrown up in the female bathroom”
Me - *poker face*
Customer - “Like, REALLY thrown up. Like, everywhere.”
Me - “…right ….I’ll just go deal with that then. Thanks”
This is going to be one long-ass fucking shift!
