So, let me get this straight: the cleaning staff threw out this kid's shorts, which sucks, but I guess accidents happen? I can't really picture how one can "accidentally" throw out something as large as a pair of shorts, but whatever. The kid, understandably, wants their shorts back. Somehow, this makes them a spoiled brat? It sucks that you have to fix someone else's mistake, but I don't see why the kid or the Dad are the villians here.

They're a spoiled brat because OP doesn't like what they had to do. You've never called someone a name when they didn't deserve it because something they wanted/needed caused you to have to do something undesirable, or just called someone a name for something they didn't deserve in general? You do it because you're mad. You know they aren't REALLY whatever name you called them, but you're pissed, so for that moment, you call them a name. You know the OP doesn't really think the person is spoiled for wanting their possessions back, it's just a heat of the moment thing.

I applaud you for excellent customer service. The employee that threw away the shorts should have been the one to retrieve them-not you. In addition, because you were serving the customer on behalf of the hotel, you should have been allowed to go home to shower and change, on the clock.

I mean, if cleaning staff threw away my clothes, I'd be upset too, so I don't think that makes her a spoiled brat for wanting something done about it. However, I'd be much more inclined to ask for financial compensation to replace the article of clothing, rather than want something back that's been in a dumpster.

Well you never know who those shorts could have belonged to or what special meaning it had. Say if the grandpa bought it for his birthday or something and then his grandpa died, those shorts would have meaning to the kid. It's most likely just a pair of shorts, but then again we don't know. I would be upset if someone threw out my items and I was staying at their hotel. Aren't they supposed to avoid touching things that don't belong to the hotel and just clean the room?
