We love it when someone takes a Twitter account and turns it into something brilliant, like Justin Halpern’s “Sh*t my Dad Says,” which incidentally launched Halpern into global fame. But recently we stumbled upon a Twitter feed for travel junkies: GuestsFromHELL.
Similar to Overheard in New York (and all the other amazing “Overheard” sites), GuestsFromHELL captures the absurd and often shamelessly stupid comments coming from folks staying at an unnamed hotel in Manhattan. The Bronx Zoo’s Cobra, now safely returned to its home, just might have some competition.
Seriously, it’s hard to believe some of these people exist. We can’t imagine the self control the hotel employees must require to keep from laughing in their guests’ faces. Others are just plain witty, as is the character(s) behind the scenes of the Twitter account. Here are some of our favorite Tweets:
“Are there any restaurants in Brooklyn?”
“Do you have any maps that show the destination?”
“Tour of 30 Rock From The Sun?”
“I wanna do stuff.” What kind of stuff? “You tell me.”
French guest: “eehhhhhhhh…” Me: “eehhhhhhhh…” French guest: “Ah, oui oui!”
“Can I leave my kids with you on Saturday night?”
This guest’s name is Vag. Sorry dude.
Please spell your name, sir. “S as in Sam, E as in Edward, B as in… Balls”
“Your hotel is too expensive. I need you to help me find cheaper accommodations.”
“My daughter is graduating from Columbia and I need you to plan her graduation party.”
“If we book a helicopter tour, will the helicopter pick us up from the hotel?”
We hope someday the Tweeter reveals his or her identity…we think we’d love to stay at your hotel, actually!
