When you're booking any accommodation, you're agreeing to its rules. Sounds basic, right? Believe it or not, some people still find this concept too difficult to understand. Or, even worse, they feel as if they're above everyone else and these rules don't apply to them. I'm talking stealing glassware as 'souvenirs,' leaving your underwear in the kettle, you know, the good stuff. Bored Panda has put together a list of some of the worst hotel and Airbnb guests, and it proves why we can't have nice things.

Kudos to all hoteliers around the globe for surviving yet another day of dealing with these monsters. Writing for Hotel Management, Glenn Haussman said there are 4 types of guests people in the industry love to hate. Let's start with the Never Happy Complainer. "This person is pissed. But don’t worry, it’s not you. There is something seriously wrong with this individual’s life, and for some reason, it’s the hotel’s fault. You know the type: Something small goes wrong and no matter what you try to do, it’s never good enough."

A simple complaint "the water in the shower wasn’t hot enough" turns into a sad display where apologies are met with more anger. But they don't want a simple apology. They need more. Turns out, repeated apologies and asking how you can make the situation better are no good as well. "This person is hell-bent on poisoning your soul and making you feel as awful as they do."

I'm a hotel GM so this strikes a nerve with me. We had a guest sadly pass away in a room and it put everyone a bit on edge. Only a day later (and by sheer coincidence) we had a guest pull this prank at check out. It put my housekeeper in tears. Wasn't all that funny.

I honestly don't think this is funny at all. How can anyone think this is a harmless prank? This could easily cause severe ptsd! My brother worked in security at a casino and literally watched a woman jump off the top, 7th floor, of a parking garage and die! He couldn't sleep for months. I realize that is just the bedding but regardless.

I worked in housekeeping at a hotel while in college. They expect you to do up four double- rooms by the hour so maybe housekeeping didn't find it that hilarious.

But they have to change the sheets anyway. I mean, I'm sorry about these bad work conditions and, as I don't know, I'm just asking. For me, at home, it takes the same time to take off the sheets when they are like in the pic than if they are in another way.

This isn't offensive, this is "Holy shit there's a dead body! What do I do?". We know it isn't real, but if someone walked into a room, and the first thing they saw was what looked like the successful result of a murder, there is no way their immediate reaction would be "Haha, that's a really funny prank". And once they found out it was, I doubt they'd think "Well that freaked me out, but I'm going to look back on this and laugh one day". They'd think "What kind of asshole finds this funny?", that is, after coming close to shitting out their own heart.

Then there are the Party People. "At full-service hotels and casino resorts in particular, I see these folks ready to party. But not the type of partying that makes you money at the bar. Nope, these folks orchestrate their own party by bringing in massively sized coolers jam-packed with more beer and other forms of booze than anyone can possibly drink. With no shame or respect for the hotel, they’ll mount a mission more complex than Normandy to bring in drinking supplies so they can save a few bucks and not buy your alcohol. And, of course, they leave the guestroom festooned with their remnants of cocktailing gone bad."

What about the 20 People, 1 Room, No Problem? "Yes, they know the room has a single king-sized bed and a small chair in the corner. But that didn’t stop them from reserving a room for one or two people, and then stealthily sneaking in many, many more. It’s a giant pain as they overstuff the room and expect you not to notice; especially after they just asked you for a dozen extra pillows and blankets and a roll-away cot."

Let's not forget the I’ll Just Sit Here Person. Glenn said there are some who seem to be lost. Nobody knows if they're staying at the hotel or not. Nobody knows because they simply sit in the lobby for many, many hours. And they aren't working or anything. Just hanging out while waiting for something, or someone. However, nobody knows who that special someone or something is as everyone's shift is over before they move a muscle.
