Today, I was mopping the floor at the hotel I work at. Before I could react, a gentleman stormed through the corridor and slipped and fell on the still wet floor. He complained to the owner, who bitched me out just to satisfy the guy. FML

OP should've had the wet floor sign up while she was mopping. And I don't know why this is a FML OP if you didn't get in trouble, only fake yelled at to make the customer happy.

Think about it this way: it's better that this guy gets artificial satisfaction than actual monetary compensation. Your boss simply made a business decision.

Yeah, I would have done the same thing. Doesn't matter if he's actually mad, he's just got to satisfy the customer in case of lawsuits, and protect the reputation of the place.


I'm not a sue-happy person, so I wouldn't. By OP using the words "stormed through" I imagine he was pretty angry whether it be at the workers or personal stuff (I imagine it's at the workers as well, but maybe I'm wrong. That's why I say whiny), and he probably wasn't looking. He slipped, it was his own fault (Until OP says they didn't put out a sign).

If someone is "storming through" a lobby or a corridor, it stands to reason the person is not in a good mood. I would hope OP put out a "Wet Floor" sign but the guy may have missed it if he was upset about something. But heck, if I see someone mopping a floor, I'm smart enough to sense that the floor may be wet and take caution, even without a sign.
