Wets see.............to my way of thinking......the trick is to bribe a employee to steal the use of a more expensive room under the ruse of *complimentary* and then the tricker..........accepting said room and not paying for it!

Sounds like two felonies to me.


Just putting that out there for thought!

What in the world are you talking about? Are we reading the same thread?

You are sad because some people say they can imagine someone trying to tip a CM $20 for an upgrade and some people say it never happens?

Hey, I'm all for folks keeping their nastiness in check on these boards, but this has just been a light hearted discussion and I honestly don't see where you have been "eviscerated and attacked."

Have some posts been removed that attacked you?

the op mentioned Vegas and in Vegas it is all about tipping. The tipper gets the most out of the trip. It's a fact of life there. I have been there plenty of times to know the $20 bill talks. No it's not the same at Disney but it doesn't make it a felony.

Attacked? That's a bit dramatic.

Very simple......right and wrong......your using something(the room) you didn't pay for and your brided someone to get it!


It not bank robbery..........but it is what it is!


In my place, I would fired the clerk and press charges against the guest, maybe both!!

So are all complimentary upgrades theft or only when you offer $20?



I'd love to hear that conversation when you call the police.

Legally, it's not theft.
