One of our members owned one of the major liquor distributors in the state. I had numerous members wanting a specific wine, but this distributor didn't carry it, so I called on rep from another that carried some of the really popular wine brands. When this guy found out he told me that it would never happen (ordering booze from any company but his) and actually threatened bodily harm. He was on the BOD, so I told him I wouldn't order from anyone else, but that if he ever thought of threatening me again, I'd make sure that I would force him into a position where he would have to try and then he would be extremely sorry.
But then there are the memorable stories such as the time one of our extremely elderly guests was walking across the lobby with his pants falling down as the dining room manager chased him to get his pants pulled up, or having one of the little old ladies try to explain to me why I should make an exception to the rule of no take out boxes for the AYCE holiday buffet, because she was older and can't eat much-this after watching her eat 3 heaping plates of peel-n-eat shrimp. Or watching male members hit on staff, almost to the point of it being sexual harassment and then showing up later that evening with wife and family. Or the occasional fist fight because someone took offense because someone belittled them because they didn't come from money, but actually had to work for it, or, in other cases because they didn't work for their money but had it handed to them. Or being threatened because a member took offense that it was suggested that maybe we should call them a cab because of the 8 scotches they had and they can barely stand let alone drive.
Sorry, rant over, but as you can see my country club experience wasn't great.
