Am I the only one that thinks favors and welcome gifts are stupid? And of course I mean this in general. I just feel like (in my case) the open bar and food are enough of a thank you for coming. No one should care whether or not I have playing cards with our date on them.
I work at a hotel and having to give out gift bags when people check in is so fucking awful. Running to the back to grab a bag of pretzels and water when I have a line at the desk makes my job that much harder. And sales just promises anything and everything without actually thinking about how it impacts our job as the people who run the show out front.
