On Whisper, Hotel Workers Come Clean About Dirty Industry Secrets (Part 2)

by SharonKurheg

Whisper is an app and website that touts itself as a form of anonymous social media. Users post confessions, either fact or fiction, by superimposing their text onto a picture, which anyone can read, either via the app or online.

The program was enormously popular, with at least a billion profiles and hundreds of millions of page views since it was established in 2012. However, the platform’s popularity has decreased in the past year or so, when it was revealed that nearly 900 million user records were not as protected as they led people to believe. Not surprisingly, a lawsuit came about soon thereafter.

Oy.

We first discovered Whisper last year, when we posted these entries from people who said they worked in the hotel industry. Of course, none of the entries can be fact-checked but I think you could see them being true, under the right circumstances.

Anyway, it’s been a year, Whisper is still around, and we felt “cleansed” enough to look at the website again, to see what was out there.

Some of their entries are sad but heartwarming:

Others are just sad:

Still others make me question ever staying in a hotel again:

And just as I did the first time I delved into Whisper, I think I want to take a shower now.

I met someone on tinder that worked at a hotel overnight. We went up to one of the rooms and had sex. Then straightened the sheets out and left the room.

Some of these I get.

The one about not doing any requests that require work, and the one about binning negative comments, I’ll admit I’m guilty of. I used to work in frontline customer service (thank God I don’t do that anymore), and some people are just assholes. If you get a couple of those people in a row, …. 🤷‍♂️

The one about giving the room above the bar to rude guests is why I always try to be nice to airline/hotel personnel I deal with. I don’t blame the hotel guy for that one.

The one about giving a room to someone who can’t afford it is heartwarming, but that person should be thankful they still have a job if they’re giving away their company’s products for free.

The stealing panties one is just creepy and weird. 😶

The one about taking other peoples’ booze is genius. 😁

The others don’t really sound all that surprising to me.
