To visit markets from around the world please pop over to @dswigle’s #MarketFriday post
So yesterday we had a family of 4 leave. They had two rooms. We were supposed to have a family of 6 arrive (also two rooms). We spent the morning cleaning and the afternoon rearranging the rooms.
But the family didn’t show. I sent a text message at 3pm asking what time they would arrive. At 6pm I called them as I hadn’t heard anything. The woman said they were going to eat at a restaurant and then had a “meeting” at 8 so weren’t sure. I had a bad feeling… I phoned at 9.45pm. The man answered and basically told me they had found rooms in another place. He tried to pretend that it was a mistake and he thought it was the place he had reserved (different village, different sounding name of hotel, bigger hotel). I was not happy and made that clear. He hung up and turned off his phone.
Some people are arseholes.
We are a small business (only 3 rooms) so when someone reserves two of them and doesn’t show it hurts us quite a bit. Especially in the current climate.
Luckily, his answerphone message revealed he is a vet and the name of his practice so we have found the address to send him the bill! I’m sure it will come to nothing, because people like that only care about themselves.
Anyway, here are some pictures I took of the market this morning.
From Monday (just gone) it is obligatory to wear masks in open-air markets like this one in our area. It was annoying to see there were some stallholders who were not doing so.
I hope you are all well and keeping safe.
I have done some Hive curation this morning, and will be doing more work on Hive later.
Let me know what you are up to!
I hope you guys have a wonderful day.
Stay cool, everyone.
