Summer Is Hospitality Hell In Kansas City!!!
So, some low rent traveler waltzes into town, berates a couple of hotel workers, throws around the race card and local media rush to broadcast his story . . . This is one of many reasons why Summer is the worst season to work in the local hospitality industry -- The world's second oldest profession that Kansas City wants to build upon with a shady downtown convention hotel debt scheme.
Alabama man says rude, profiling encounter at downtown KC hotel left him feeling unwelcome
A few quick takeaways from this story . . .
- Nobody cares about a dispute betwixt people of color - Go ask "white Hispanic" George Zimmerman for those who aren't convinced about the validity of this point.
- Consumer complaints with mobile phone footage are almost always one-sided . . . Honestly, I didn't think the security guard was being that rude and the "victim" really had to bait the guy to make the story into a faux racial drama.
- Nevertheless, one of the workers was fired and media seemed sympathetic in an attempt to make some Internet-discount-bargain basement website dweeb feel better about himself.
For these reasons and so many more . . . The plight of hospitality workers must be respected. It's a tough racket and the media, political and consumer bias toward petite bourgeoisie tourists is a slap in the face to Kansas City working-class dignity.
Fact is, in a world that's exceptionally corporate, cold and uncaring . . . The customer isn't always right - The customer is just another inconvenience along with fair wages, healthcare and the petri dish of bacteria found on most hotel TV remote controls.
Can customers just take their biz elsewhere??? Where??? To one of the 3 or 4 other Illuminati-owned corporations who dominate just about every American industry???
Or should frustrated hotel guests use the Internets to "share" the home of some serial killer??? Good luck.
And all of this is to say that as Kansas City prepares to dive headlong into the hospitality game with big-ass hotel that mostly exists in developer Mike Burke's imagination . . . Let's not give tourists the wrong idea about about "Kansas City nice" -- Which is really just po'folk of every demographic trying to be polite whilst gritting teeth and smiling until the check clears.
You decide . . .
