The Internet Can’t Stop Laughing At The Worst Hotel Guest Ever Who Got Banned From Hotel For Lifetime

Nova Scotia man Nick Burchill has been banned from the Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C for the last 17 years. Why? Well, he finally got the courage to explain the hilariously unfortunate circumstances that led to his ban in a recent Facebook post that has gone viral on Facebook.

It all started back in 2001, thanks to some ‘Brother’s Pepperoni,’ a local delicacy from Nick’s hometown of Halifax. His Navy buddies on the other side of the country wanted to get their hands on some, so Nick brought over an entire suitcase, as you do. As an Australian living abroad I can definitely sympathize with this, many a suitcase of Vegemite has found its way over to me by hook or by crook.

Anyway, after his baggage was misplaced by the airline for a whole day, and with his hotel room having no fridge, Nick had to come up with another solution to deal with the slow and smelly spoilage of his meat-suitcase. What unfolded next was an absolute shit-show of comedy events and poor choices, with the situation hilariously deteriorating into a seagull-infested mess and a lifetime ban for Nick. But what about the pepperoni? Did any survive seagull-geddon? I managed to rinse off some vac-packs that the seagulls could not penetrate and pass them along,” Nick told Bored Panda. “The recipients only just found out about that today.”

With the ban weighing heavily on his conscience for all these years, Nick decided that it was time for a peace offering. “I have matured and I admit responsibility for my actions,” he wrote. “I come to you, hat-in-hand to apologize for the damage I had indirectly come to cause and to ask you reconsider my lifetime ban from the property. I hope that you will see fit to either grant me a pardon, or consider my 18 year away from the empress as “time served”.

Seems like Nick has made peace with the seagulls too, even though he could be forgiven for holding a grudge. “I’m cool with gulls now,” he told us. “And I will most certainly be going back to the Empress; this time under the close supervision of my wife and children.”

Scroll down below to read Nick’s hilarious story for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

For those of you who think this is fake ( cough..Warawk, Losinger), this made ALL of the local newspapers and TV stations as well. I'm sure the Fairmont Empress would step up if this story weren't true. I have to wonder what's wrong in the lives of people who work so tirelessly to quash a laugh or harsh other people's joy? Must be really happy people ;0)

I didn't say this story was fake. Anyway, you claim this was in the mainline news media. I'm curious to read about it. Please cite a source.
