OP was merely a week into their new role as a hotel front desk agent, freshly transitioned from a job as a cruise line check-in agent. The slow afternoon shift was in progress, punctuated by occasional check-ins. But everything changed when Libbie made her appearance.
The Short-Term Reservation Twist
Libbie, a pleasant woman, approached OP with the intention to book a room. Her unusual request was for a “few hours” stay. After OP explained the full-night policy, she conceded, seemingly unperturbed by the hefty $240 price tag.
Libbie’s Unusual Check-in Request
The situation took an unexpected turn when Libbie presented her credit card to OP.
She Requested to Put It Under Another Man’s Name
Upon asking for her ID, she requested that the reservation be made under another man’s name, who would join her later.
The Secret Behind the Guest List
Somewhat taken aback, OP explained the need for her name on the guest list. Libbie seemed to relax after being reassured that this list was only accessible by the hotel staff.
A Different Name, a Different Game
Throughout their interaction, Libbie remained composed and courteous, but her request to be addressed by a pseudonym suggested a secretive meeting.
Checking-in Under an Alias
Bewildered yet accommodating, OP completed the check-in process.
She Even Revealed a Picture of the Man
Libbie even revealed a picture of the man who was due to arrive, going a step further in her unusual requests.
Arrival of the Mystery Man
An hour later, “Jake” arrived. Oblivious to the unfolding drama, OP’s coworker checked him in. OP couldn’t help but find humor in the peculiar situation.
A Rapid Checkout: Where’s Jake?
Suddenly, Libbie returned, handed both keys over with a polite thank you, and left. The brief stay and return of both keys set OP’s mind spiraling with questions about what had happened to Jake.
Jake’s Safe Return
OP’s racing thoughts were abruptly halted when Jake resurfaced, appearing unharmed. However, the bustling front desk prevented OP from digging deeper into the drama.
Valet Spills the Tea
Later, the valet attendant shared intriguing details. Libbie had requested a hidden parking spot for her car.
Jake Was Her Husband!
The real shocker? Jake was her husband!
Libbie’s Revenge Unveiled
The alias used by Libbie was, in fact, the name of Jake’s mistress. She’d cleverly lured Jake to the hotel under the pretense of a secret date, only for him to be confronted by his wife.
A Calm Storm
With an impressive calmness, Libbie retrieved their house keys from Jake, hopped in her car, and simply drove off.
He Was Left Behind
Jake was left behind, likely riddled with regret over his actions.
Mastermind or Betrayed Wife?
It’s unclear how Libbie managed to execute this cunning trick.
A Spectacular Demonstration of Karma
However, her bold retaliation against her unfaithful husband, staged within the very walls of OP’s hotel, was a spectacular demonstration of karma.
