Guests drop table manners in return to neanderthal times

Guests drop table manners in return to neanderthal times

AT LAST, a definitive picture of a hotelier’s nightmare conference delegate has emerged.

Apparently he or she speaks with their mouth full, licks their knife, slurps their spaghetti, throws bread rolls, barks orders down mobiles at table, pinches the waitress/waiter’s bum and smokes continuously.

At least, that’s what a press release from conference reservation and service company Banks Sadler would have us believe.

Banks Sadler, which compiled some damning statistics after talking to 60 hoteliers on guest behaviour, is out to shame these neanderthal creatures into more appropriate behaviour.

While 29% of hoteliers consider the behaviour “disappointing”, 8% rate it appalling with three-quarters of the hoteliers offering to give etiquette lessons to the real no-hopers.
