I apologized to him and told him I had no cash on me to help him out because I only carry a debit card. Also, it was 2 days before payday and I was pretty broke myself at this time.
He immediately looked infuriated by my response to not be able to help him and said, "let me talk to your manager you stupid girl." I once again told him she was on a business call and couldn’t step away at that moment (especially for a random man asking for money).
With rage-filled eyes he looked me straight in the eyes, pointed his finger at me and said, "I’m going to hurt you one day, you little red headed b*tch!" He picked up a potted plant on the desk, threw it into the wall, and calmly strode out the front door.
He wasn’t a guest. Wasn’t even trying to stay at our hotel. Just randomly stopping by to borrow money. Probably for drugs, in retrospect.

Back when I worked in retail, a lady came to the counter with some stuff she wanted to buy.
She was on the phone, so I spoke quietly. "Can I help you?" I asked, when she didn't hand the goods over.
She covered the receiver and looked at me like I'd kicked her dog. "I’m on the phone! Sorry about that, Hannah…"
So she finishes her conversation gets off the phone and hands it all over. "$24.98, please," I said.
She froze. "I’ve got, uh…" she hands a small mound of coins over, and when I'm done counting it, she's short.
"I need another five bucks," I said.
She doesn't reply for a second. "Well," she said, knocking everything off the counter, "Then you better clean this crap up."
Many years ago I fell in love and wanted to ask the girl of my dreams for her hand in marriage. I felt it was proper to ask for her parent's blessing.
I was young, nervous, and quite intimidated sitting there across the room, trying to eek out the request. (continued...)
