how would you deal with an irritated guest

4 Answers

I would listen to them, first and foremost. I would make sure they knew that they had my undivided attention. Once they finished venting, I'd do anything within my power to fix the problem and make sure the guest was, in the end, satisfied. The only time I would get a supervisor would be if 1.
