OAPs fined after naked husband runs through hotel with scissors



Two pensioners have been ordered to pay nearly £5,000 in fines and compensation after an "out of control" drunken rampage through a hotel in Perthshire.

Robert Fergus, 72 and his wife Ruth, 69, threatened guests and staff at the Macdonald Loch Rannoch Hotel in February.

Perth sheriff court heard how Mr Fergus ran naked with a pair of scissors through the hotel and smashed a pane of glass. He used the scissors to cut communications cables at the reception and was caught driving his BMW while drunk.

The BBC reports that Mrs Fergus threatened to shoot a staff member after "reacting badly" to alcohol she had consumed.

The couple were fined £4,100 and ordered to pay the hotel £800 in compensation.

According to The Scotsman, Mr Fergus admitted behaving in a threatening and abusive manner towards hotel staff and causing extensive damage to the hotel by smashing a pane of glass and damaging servers by cutting cables.

He was banned from driving for one year.

Fiscal Depute Michael Sweeney said: "Both accused were acting as if they were out of control.

"He was observed to have a pair of scissors.

"Mrs Fergus said: 'I'm going to get a gun and shoot you,' at (staff member) Miss Titkova."

"On seeing the scissors, Miss Titkova shouted at the other staff and guests to run."

Disgusting things hotel guests do
Reddit user and hotel worker OliverJamesIX says he wishes guests would think about the employees cleaning up after them when checking in for dirty weekends. "The amount of times a guest will have requested something, needed something fixed in their room or asked for room service, only to decide to f*** straight after they put the phone down leaving me stuck outside the door with that extra set of towels or walking into a room to fix something and seeing more than I ever needed too. Also bins are provided in bedrooms for a reason. Stop leaving used condoms, lube packets, discarded toys just all over the bed and tables."
"We had guests open the mini bar fridge, drink the beer, p**s in the empty bottle, screwed/put the cap back on and went on their merry ways," said hotel worker MistahZig. "Next client (old gentleman with his daughter) took a swill of p**s that day. Thing is, we had no idea which previous clients did this, which sucked." He added: "From that day on, I always twist beers open near my ear so I can hear that satisfying 'tssss' sound, just in case."

Reddit user undisclosed_lemons learned that a friendly couple were disgusting: "I used to be a manager at a hotel in a small town, I saw all kinds of sick things! I had an old couple who used all the towels, hand towels, and wash clothes to wipe there a**! I would occasionally help the maids and clean the rooms close to the front desk and I found the towels all waded up in the corner covered in c**p. Thing was, I like talking to that old couple too! That job taught me that all people are gross or have gross habits."

yushoi said she was a hotel room cleaner and hated "when guests put used untied condoms in the toilet, under pillows, under the bed, on the tea and coffee tray.. basically anywhere."

One hotel worker, armored-dinnerjacket, complained of the sneaky and rather disturbing things that guests do, including "taking a shit in one of the drawers and leaving it there." Ugh!
"When I was a housekeeper, someone got blood all over the sheets in one bed in the room, made it up to look like it hadn't been used, and mussed up the sheets on the other bed," said user Lost_in_GreenHills. "I was supposed to leave a bed alone if it hadn't been used, so I didn't know about the bloody sheets and I didn't change them. The next guest in that room arrived at 1am and crawled into the bed and fell asleep without even looking at the sheets. She saw the blood in the morning and was furious."
Hotel employee JimmyCarterDiedToday said that "masturbating in ice buckets" is the most disgusting things hotel guests do.
"I worked at two different hotels and the amount of guests who don't flush the toilet has always astonished and baffled me," said Jilltro. "Do people think that flushing is so arduous that if they're on vacation they're taking a break from it? How is flushing a toilet not a reflex?"
Former bellboy and maintenance guy shimmyfizzle recalls "finding a t**d in our pool. How does someone not mention this? If it was a kid, there should have been an adult there to witness it. It was pretty hard to miss."

One former employee said: "I worked in hotels years ago and the amount of people who order room service and answer the door scantily clad is astonishing. It's your room guy, if you want to lie around with your balls out that's totally fine just please, we give you a robe, throw it on before opening the door."
