#30 and #41 Don't use that as an excuse. ALL OP had to do was make them aware of his/her presence and, if they didnt go, call the front desk. It's not confrontation to clear your throat or ask "who is there". Beyond that ALL hotels have "Do Not Disturb" signs for a reason. Put it on the god damn door if you are in the room. Period.
All op needed to do was ask them to come back later. 3 words. And if the op does have such severe anxiety, then 42 is right and he should be leaving his do not disturb sign on the door every time he's in the room. I'm not saying op deserves it per say, but I am saying that there were several solutions to op's "problem."
#42,44,&45 Clearly ya'll are lucky enough not to be stricken with social anxiety. It's not an "easy fix" or JUST "three simple words". To someone with social anxiety or just horrible anxiety in general....speaking to anyone especially a stranger is like trying to give a speech in front of 1000 people. It's terrifying on a level that you can't control! So don't talk about things you don't understand. You'll never know until you have to experience it.
I have to agree. While not everyone would be comfortable walking out and yelling at people, there are a myriad of minor tiny things OP could have done to better the situation. Even something as simple as: FLUSH THE TOILET. The cleaners would hear that sound, realize someone was in the room and ran for the hills.
