8. Not a Homeless Guy
Worked as a chef for a Hilton. Remember speaking with one of the managers of a different downtown hotel, very high end, and he told me this story:
The manager was on his way out of the hotel after work one evening and saw a homeless guy a ways out sleeping on the lawn. He decided to walk back in and tell the front desk employees to try and get him off the property.
Came back in for work the next morning and saw the same homeless guy still sleeping on the lawn, so he ran in to chew out the front desk manager about how the employees didn’t do as he asked. They both walked out to get the man to leave, and they found the man was wearing a nice suit coat.
Turns out it was a wealthy businessman who had jumped off the 12th-story balcony and had just been no longer living there all night and half the day. Turns out no one saw him fall.
Sad story, actually.
